This week Gitzo announced two new products for Sony camera owners: a Traveler series tripod kit with a custom-fitted plate for the latest Alpha mirrorless camera models, plus an Arca type L-bracket to take it to the next level.
The new Gitzo GT1545TA Series 1 Traveler follows most of the same design specifications as the previously available GT1545T kit, with a few slight differences. First, the camera plate that comes on the ball head is machined to fit perfectly on third-generation a7 cameras and the a9. It’s also available in a special edition colorway, black and silver. Lastly, it comes with a tripod carrying strap made of genuine leather and “crafted to resemble carbon fiber.” The Traveler tripod kit weighs 3.15 pounds, extends to 64.96 inches, and can hold up to 22 pounds.
Next, the new L-bracket fits Sony a7 III and Sony a9 mirrorless cameras allowing for quick changes of portrait and landscape orientation on an Arca type tripod head. It’s machined from a single block of aluminum and has a gray finish. There are four connection points for straps and has a hex key storage built in.
