GK3532-80QD is a Series 3 tripod/head kit comprising a GT3532 Mountaineer Tripod and a GH3780QD Centre Ball Head, recommended for professional DSLRs with 300mm lenses (up to a maximum of 400mm). GT3532 is a standard-height 3-section Series 3 Mountaineer tripod; its new design, along with its use of Carbon eXact tubes, makes it lighter in weight yet more rigid than the equivalent preceding model. It has a top leg section diameter of 32.9mm. The tripod is carefully matched with a GH3780QD 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).
This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.
Completely redesigned for faster operation, this Ground Level Set mechanism permits to remove the centre column to get the camera closer to the ground. A single simple unlocking ring under the column's upper disc frees the column while keeping the upper disc solidly in place on the tripod (Patent Pending).
