(From company literature) Gitzo G1348 Inter-Pro Studex Performance Tripod. The most versatile tripod in the line.
The G1348 is a four-section tripod with flat plate. The G1348 is ideal for photographic or video work and features interchangeable column capability. The flat plate can be removed and replaced with a grooved rapid column or geared column for extra height.
All performance models have sliding stops that allow the legs to be set at different angles.
Gitzo carbon tubes use an exclusive process based on pull winding of long carbon fibers that are precisely wrapped and combined under high pressure and temperature with epoxy resin to a 1.5mm wall thickness. This manufacturing process ensures stiff, light tubes resistant to bending, have good tensile and compression strength, a high degree of stability in extreme temperatures, absorbs vibration and withstands fatigue better than other carbon fiber tube processes.
Carbon fiber Rapid center columns are now grooved to prevent rotation and increase stability. A stainless steel weight hook is attached to the base of the center column, providing a convenient place to add extra stability in windy conditions. Another first from Gitzo.
Mountaneer tripods are constructed using a "screw thread and adhesive" dual jointing technology pioneered by Gitzo. Called "H.I.S." (Hybrid Interconnecting System), thus construction technique provides greater strength and stability.
