The GK2542-80QD is a tripod/head kit comprising a GT2542 Mountaineer Tripod and a GH2780QD Centre Ball Head, recommended for DSLRs with 200mm lenses (up to a maximum of 300mm). The GT2542 is a sturdy, perfectly balanced, standard-height 4-section Series 2 tripod featuring Carbon eXact tubes with larger diameters for significant improvements in stiffness. Its top leg section diameter is 29.0mm. The tripod is carefully matched with a GH2780QD centre ball head, which guarantees a high maximum load, and features Gitzo's unique, exclusive technical solutions, such as the hollow Bubble Ball, Spring-Assisted Double Lock (SADL) and the new hybrid quick release system (supplied with an Arca-Swiss style plate, but also accepts Gitzo C Profile plates).
