Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.

The Gitzo Ocean Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Anti-Corrosion 4-Section Tripod are designed and built for professional performance, maintenance-free durability and resistance against seawater, humidity and other aggressive natural environments. Precision-tooled aluminium parts have a corrosion-resistance finishing, while specially redesigned leg collars on the 6X carbon fibre legs protect each section of tube against sand, dust and mud, and expel any water trapped inside tube sections by working as an air cushion. The GT2542LO is a modular Systematic tripod, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, levelling bases and other components designed for specific applications. A ratchet lever lock makes interchanging components fast and easy, while a new secondary safety catch protects centre components and attached camera equipment against accidental damage, even if the centre component is inadvertently left unlocked. Adding to the set up speed and convenience - vitally important in extreme conditions and remote locations - is the Ocean G-Lock system, which requires only a quarter turn to lock or unblock each leg section. Systematic tripods are Gitzo's strongest and most stable, with a number of design and construction features combining to offer unparalleled load capacities: the triangular design of the Systematic shoulder element distributes weigh more safely, efficiently and evenly than ever, and a new bonding process between leg tubes and metal components has almost doubled payloads. Built-in spiked feet add stability and safety, without sacrificing set-up speed.
Ocean Lock- The Ocean-Lock is a special version of Gitzo G-Lock, maintaining the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived from the automation industry, it minimizes the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms. The Ocean-Lock is not 100% waterproof, however it dramatically enhances the capacity of the tripod to withstand extreme environments.
Anti Leg Rotation - The Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system allows the tripod to be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
