TA Macalister lands Gitzo in NZ

23 Sep 11

Camera and accessory distributors TA Macalister have launched a range of tripods and heads from the renowned Gitzo brand.

Founded in 1917, Gitzo was the first company to utilize carbon and basalt in tripod construction, and magnesium in head construction.

Teresa Walsh, product manager at TA Macalister, says Gitzo is ‘the ultimate in tripods’.

"They have used the best materials available which means they look great but also perform extremely well,” Walsh says.

The current range of tripods feature 6x carbon fibre, a ground-level position which allows low level shooting, a gravity lock that strengthens as a higher load is applied, an anti-leg rotation system, multiple leg positions, and an ocean lock which prevents water and grit from entering the tubes and locking mechanisms.

The Gitzo heads offer a double quick-release safety system, multiple leveling bubbles, separate pan control, a double lock system, and a bubble ball which minimizes the weight of larger balls and gives a smooth movement and powerful lock.
