Gitzo Systematic tripods are the strongest and most stable tripods available in the market and offer unsurpassed flexibility of use. These tripods are a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations. The same tripod can serve both as a video and a photographic support. A wide selection of accessories allow you to keep growing your system according to your future needs, for still life, macro, outdoor, sport and wildlife applications. Systematic tripods are available in 6X carbon fibre and aluminium tubing. Aluminium tripods (Series 5 excluded) have been completely redesigned and upgraded to the same features of 6X carbon fibre models. Aluminium Systematic are now faster, lighter and more stable. A key innovation is the use of Gitzo latest aluminium tube1.2mm wall thick, 30% lighter than its predecessor, with Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR) and brushed matt black finish for improved locking performance and minimised reflectivity. Thanks to ALR, Aluminium Systematic tripods are now as fast to operate as the 6X carbon fibre versions. A part from the tubing, aluminium and Carbon Fibre systematic tripods now share the same features: G-Lock, removable self locking feet, three leg spreads and new upper platforms. These new platforms allow for a more solid connection of the head and reduced vibrations thanks to the safe lock techno polymer disc and a locking screw for the head.

Pelican hard Cases

Pelican cases are molded plastic containers that seal with an airtight and watertight gasket. Pelican cases include a barometric relief valve made of Gore-Tex to prevent pressure damage to the case, during transportation or when the air pressure in the environment changes. Pelican cases meet standards for waterproofing, stacking, impact, and durability including MIL-STD C4150-J for waterproofing, IEC   IP67 rating indicating complete sealing against dust and water immersion to 1 metre, as well as ATA 300 rating indicating compliance with Air Transport Association standards for durability in shipping. Pelican cases feature a lifetime guarantee. In Europe, they are sold as Peli cases due to the name "Pelican" being trade marked by another company.

If the case falls into water, generally there will be enough air in the case to keep it afloat. The barometric relief valve permits air to pass through, but not water or other liquids.

WHY YOU NEED A TRIPOD - 9 Great Reasons

The tripod has been hailed as the greatest camera accessory ever invented. and for good reason. Sure, the idea of having 3 legs for support predates photography itself by a a couple of thousand years, however the concept remains the same. Being used by artists, soldiers, surveyors and many others have employed tripods for a variety of purposes over the ages.

Most people know that a sturdy tripod will give you a sharper image, especially when shooting at slower shutter speeds. It can be great in assisting in composing your shot for landscapes and portraits; the extreme versatility of the tripod is often vastly underappreciated by a lot of photographers. To give you a better idea of what a tripod can do for you the photographer and why the keen amatuer and serious photographer should own at least one tripod, here are some great reasons to how this 3 legged friend can take your photos to the next level.

Enhancing sharpness: A tripod that is properly set up will get you sharper pictures each and every time. Comparison tests show that even at fast shutter speeds in the 1/250-1/1000 sec range, images shot using a tripod are measurably sharper than those taken handheld. The rule of thumb, based on 35mm-equivalent focal lengths, is that the slowest hand-holdable shutter speed is one over the focal length of the lens—that is, 1/200 sec with a 200mm lens. However this rule only works up to a given print size—approximately 8x10 inches. If you make larger prints, you’ll need to use a faster shutter speed, or, better yet, a tripod. The optical image stabilization systems built into many late model digital cameras yield sharper handheld images at slower shutter speeds than the rule recommends, but when you’re shooting at long telephoto focal lengths and/or making prints of 11x14 and larger, there is still nothing better than using a sturdy tripiod.
Enhancing depth of field: To achieve maximum depth of field—an image that’s critically sharp from foreground to background—you must shoot at a relatively small aperture, generally in the f/11 to f/32 range. And to maintain high image quality, it’s best to shoot at ISO 100 to 400. In most cases, unless you’re shooting in brilliant sunshine, this means that you or your camera will select a relatively slow shutter speed in order to provide a proper exposure. The inevitable conclusion: If you require extreme depth of field for pictorial or artistic effects, set your camera on Manual or A (aperture-priority) mode, select a small aperture, and use a tripod.
Enhancing capture quality: A tripod will allow you to set a lower ISO when taking picture under any lighting conditions because you can shoot sharp pictures at slower shutter speeds. Most digital cameras deliver optimum image quality with less “digital grain,” aliasing, artifacts, etc. when you set the ISO to 100 or 200.
Enhancing framing precision: A tripod is the supreme image-control device, allowing you to compose the picture perfectly using its panning (lateral rotation) tilting (vertical swing) and center post height adjustments. Many tripods also provide grounder capability for extreme low-angle shooting, and levels on the yoke and/or head platform to aid precise composition and minimize keystoning and other types of linear distortion. Using a tripod is also the only convenient way of shooting multiple frames exactly the same picture at different exposure settings, allowing you to choose the rendition you prefer in terms of tonal range, depth of field, etc.
Extending your focal-length range: The longer the focal length of your lens or the focal length setting of your zoom lens, the higher the magnification of the image on the sensor or film. That’s why the image-blurring effects of even a slight amount of camera shake will be amplified at longer focal lengths. Yes, enabling your camera’s image-stabilization systems and shooting at higher shutter speeds can certainly help, but if you often shoot at equivalent focal lengths of 300mm and above, you should be using a sturdy medium-sized or larger tripod, preferably with the center post in its lowest position or extended only minimally for maximum stability. Candidates for hefty tripods used with long lenses include nature photographers, bird photographers, sports photographers and surveillance photographers.
Extending your photographic range: The number of subject types and situations where a tripod is essential or highly beneficial is virtually limitless, but here are a few you might consider: Night photography, shooting time exposures, getting yourself into the picture using the self-timer, remote photography of a pre-planned subject, view, or location, macro photography at high magnifications, architectural and astrophotography, scientific, testing, nature, and identification photography where repeatability is required, time-lapse photography, panoramic photography and of course action photography when you want to blur the background by panning the camera.
Enhancing your videos and movies: There’s no substitute for a tripod with a fluid head in achieving smooth panning and tilting when shooting videos and movies. Even moderately priced video tripods with fluid-effect heads instead of true fluid heads are a big help in achieving smooth looking pans that give your videos a professional touch. Serious amateurs and pros will opt for true fluid heads that can actually adjust the degree of damping action, not just the amount of friction on the movement. Even if you don’t use a tripod with a fluid head, it’s a good idea to mount your digital camera or camcorder on a tripod whenever you can—your results will look far less jerky than using a handheld camera, and you can even mount your tripod on a dolly to achieve true Hollywood-effect dolly shots, which often look a lot more realistic than zooming in or out with your lens.
Enhancing your creative expression: How can a tripod possibly enhance your creativity? Basically by forcing you to slow down, giving you time to think about creating a photograph and expressing your ideas, as opposed to grabbing snapshots of the passing scene. This is not to denigrate either snapshooters or photojournalists who have certainly produced timeless images of life on the move, but there is also something to be said for taking the contemplative approach, carefully considering everything in the frame before pressing the shutter release. Yes, there are some geniuses that can consistently capture decisive moments on the fly, but most shooters find their photography improves both technically and esthetically when they use a tripod. Try it—we guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Extending shooting flexibility: Tripods have many uses besides holding a camera. They can be pressed into service as light stands, to hold flash units, slaves, and reflectors, or (when fitted with suitable hooks, platforms, or baskets) to hold and protect delicate equipment. We’ve even heard of one intrepid wildlife photographer who used his heavy-duty tripod with spiked leg tips to fend off a bear!
