Gitzo, a pioneer in some of the most advanced, revolutionary technologies for professional camera equipment, is celebrating one hundred years of outstanding innovation and technological leadership by launching an exclusive, limited-edition travel tripod - the 100 Year Anniversary Edition.

Gitzo initiated the travel tripod era, creating products designed to be companions for life. The worlds most inspirational brand of tripods and heads is celebrating its first centenary of tradition, innovation and expertise that have made it a beacon of excellence in the photographic world.

To mark the occasion, Gitzo has launched the new 100Y ''DEFINING TOMORROW'' logo, referencing infinity and the creations the company has yet to roll out.

It has Gitzos latest Traveler Series 1 technological features, including state of the art Carbon eXact tubing and 180 leg folding mechanism for the ultimate strength, the Traveler G-lock mechanism, making it compact, strong and ergonomic, together with a brand-new Center Ball Head for superior smoothness and precision. Moreover, the limited-edition tripod features an ergonomic strap made of genuine Italian leather with a carbon fibre look, for extreme comfort in use.
