Budget (S$): -
Description:
I have a Gitzo 1500 alum tripod with the G1572 column.

This is the strongest and most accurate tripod in the world that's Exceptionally rigid and resistant to torsion. As described by Gitzo.

Max load weight is 44.1 lbs, or 20kg.

It's now known as the System 5 and previously know as the Studex range.

Mechanically perfect. Cosmetically has seen better days. Has dings and marks on the legs etc but don't let that fool you. This baby can take anything you may be able to dish out at it!

I've noticed that when extending the legs, the tripod 'sucks in' air, and upon tightening, a 'seal' of sorts is formed. This might be THE ideal tripod for wetland work, nature reserves, birding and nature photography etc.

It certainly feels like it can easily take a 600 or 800 monster on a gimbal with no problems.



I am looking to trade for a slightly lighter Gitzo model in equal cosmetic condition still mechanically perfect with center column (preferably geared) that can take at least 13-15kg.

Willing to consider other brands or models as long as can take at least 13kg loads - steadily.

Just let me know what you have in mind.

CHEERS!
