Today Only! Save $700 on this limited-edition, magnesium-alloy and carbon fiber Anniversary Edition Tripod commemorates Gitzo’s 2017 centennial. Only 1,917 100-Year Anniversary Edition Tripods will be produced, in honor of 1917, the year Gitzo was founded. A testament to Gitzo’s longevity, each 100-Year Anniversary Edition Tripod is engraved with its production number on one of its legs.
Included with each 100-Year Anniversary Edition Tripod is an anniversary booklet, an authentication certificate, a hangtag identifying the Gitzo craftsperson who assembled the tripod, plus a leather tripod strap.
Constructed from magnesium-alloy and carbon fiber for durability while remaining lightweight, the 100-Year Anniversary Edition Tripod supports up to 22.0 lb, measures 16.9″ when folded, and can be positioned to a maximum height of 55.5″, or 64.96″ with its push-and-pull, rapid center column fully raised.
Its 4-section legs each feature an independent spread, a 2-position angle lock, and twist locks for rapid deployment. When the center column and the legs are retracted, the tripod stands at 16.73″. To enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, each leg includes a rubber foot.
Cameras or lenses compatible with a 1/4″-20 mount can be connected to the Arca-type quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod’s ball head using a quick release clamp. The ball head is also engraved in celebration of Gitzo’s 100-year anniversary, is removable, provides up to a 90° tilt for portrait orientation, 360° of independent rotation, and can be locked into place along its range of movement.
For added versatility, a short, secondary center column is provided, facilitating low-angle photography. When installed, the tripod can be lowered to a height of 9.25″.
