Gitzo Leveling series 2 G1258LVL Tripod Tripods

Gitzo Leveling series 2 G1258LVL Tripod Tripods 


The Gitzo G1258LVL Leveling Mountaineer 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod uses advanced "Carbon 6X" carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter and as resistant as its 12 layer predecessor. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes. This Leveling tripod has a ball joint-mounted center column designed to let you get your camera perfectly level simply by adjusting the column inclination instead of having to set each leg individually. The G1258LVL is a remarkably rigid 3-leg section tripod capable of holding most 35mm & medium format gear and even most lighter field 4x5 cameras.

Stable, lightweight. Typical Gitzo excellence. The leveling mechanism surely adds some weight to the unit, but the ease with which one can level the camera, at least for me, makes the extra hoist acceptable. I attached a Kirk head, which is lightweight, as well, to result in a backpackable pod. I wouldn't carry this all the way into the wilderness, but for short hikes, it is optimal balance between weight and stability.


The only real weakness is the slight additional weight of the leveling mechanism
