Gitzo Systematic Series 5 Carbon Tripod
Gitzo’s top-of-the-range Systematic tripods are modular, with a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases and other components. Because they have leg angle settings but no column as standard, Systematic tripods are all capable of near-ground level shooting. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fiber with Gitzo’s efficient G-locks. The GT5542LS is a Gitzo Series 5 tripod designed for strength and torsional rigidity under extreme loads of up to 40kg (88lb) and with lenses up to 800mm. With its 4-section legs fully extended, it reaches eye level even without using a center column, yet it remains compact when folded.

Kirk BH-1 Ball Head
Weighing in at only 30 ounces, this ball head features silky smooth ball-and-socket action for complete control–just by releasing and locking a single knob. Two smaller knobs control the 360-degree panning base and the amount of ball friction. The Model BH-1 features a universal quick-release platform with a built-in spirit level that accepts all Arca-style plates and mounts. All external components are crafted from tough 6061-T aircraft aluminum including the solid, captive-design knobs, and the internal metal parts are stainless steel and brass to avoid corrosion. The ballcup is produced from self-lubricating Delrin composite, and the tripod socket accepts 3/8-inch thread. This could be the last ball head you ever need to buy.

Gitzo Series 2 Carbon 6X Traveler Monopod
Series Six-Section 6X carbon fibre monopod. Monopods are traditionally used at sports events and in situations where space is tight and framing speed is a key factor. The ideal monopod needs to be lightweight, extremely fast to open and close. Thanks to ALR and G-Lock, Gitzo monopods have all these features. All new monopods feature the new Gitzo belt clip. This clip, incorporated in the wrist strap, is a smart carrying solution that allows you to hang your monopod on belts or pockets.

Manfrotto 504HD Pro Fluid Video Head 75
All structural components are made from aluminum, with the PAN axis rotation unit using ball bearings to obtain smooth, totally vibration-free controlled movements that can be directly adjusted using the head’s FDS variable friction system. FDS on both the PAN and TILT axes also ensures that the head works perfectly at all temperatures, with all types of equipment and under all loads. Ergonomically improved lever and dial designs combine with the new friction index to give you complete control over the 504HD.
