The Gitzo Mini Traveler is especially dedicated to professional photographers and promising amateurs who use mirrorless cameras or DSLR cameras with small lenses. It provides convenience and functionality during every outdoor photographic project and fits any photographic bag without taking up space from main imaging gear. Thanks to its state-of-the-art carbon eXact tubes and detachable aluminium head, it weighs only 265g (117g legs only). It is built of premium materials, ensuring always the best reliability. The machined aluminium spider and head are strong and dependable, supporting up to 3kg in fully splayed configuration (up to 25kg legs only). The innovative "patent pending" Pull&Fix system enables the selection of two angles for each leg, independently.

Evaluation

At the height of high quality compact digital cameras, it was a blind spot that there were no tripods fit for high quality compact digital cameras. To be sure, if you purchase a high quality compact digital camera, you would want a suitable tripod for it. This product creates a luxurious feel that rivals that of such cameras. Looking at the details, you would wonder how the coating was applied. Additionally, it is very interesting how the bottom rubber is coated, not plainly but elaborately with a devised method.
