The Explorer is another Gitzo tripod for special applications; a versatile support that opens up new shooting perspectives. Thanks to its unconventional design, the legs can be set at any angle and moved independently while the center column tilts and rotates freely to any position. The Explorer unleashes its potential when used with a Gitzo off-center ball head, a combination that makes it the ideal tripod for creative photographers, looking for unconventional shots: close to ground, upside down or in tight or awkward spaces. Ideal applications are outdoor macro and nature photography, still life and architectural.
The best choice for DSLR or for lightweight camcorders. Recommended for 200mm lens, up to 300mm maximum. Series 2 offers an excellent maximum load capacity and very good torsional rigidity. Weight and size are still convenient for travelling or trekking. Available in 3- and 4-section models at standard and compact heights. Series 2 is the ideal solution for photographers that are looking for a solid and yet lightweight tripod.
