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 Series-2 6X Systematic 4-Section Tripod are modular, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, levelling bases and other components. Because they have leg angle settings but no column as standard, Systematic tripods are all capable of near-groud level shooting. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fibre with Gitzo's efficient G-locks. The GT2542S is a lightweight, compact 4-section tripod in Gitzo's smallest Series 2. Designed for strength and torsional rigidity under loads of up to 25kg (55lb) and with DSLRs and lenses up to 300mm, it reaches compact level when fully open.
Anti Leg Rotation - This tripod can 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.
G-Lock - For a strong, fast, and safer locking mechanism, G-Lock's special design provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock becomes.
Leg Ends - With removable rubber feet, the Series 2 allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet.
Hook - A built-in accessory that allows you to hang a stabilizing weight, like a full camera bag or a sand bag, from the bottom of the tripod head plate. This is helpful when using long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
