    FS: Gitzo G1228 MK2

    This is one of the most robust and compact carbon fiber tripods available. Gitzo quality is unrivaled. My wife paid $500 for it. It was gift but I never used it since I shoot smaller rangefinders and never needed a heavy duty tripod. Comes with original box and packaging.

    $390 shipped.

    Description from B and H

    The 1228 is a remarkably rigid tripod capable of holding most 35mm & medium format gear and even some lighter field 4x5 cameras. The abundant advantages of carbon fiber make this tripod remarkable in many respects. Vibration reduction is wonderful, it is light enough to take everywhere and goes up and down very quickly. The build quality, ergonomics and non-rotating center column with positive locking action are the best in the industry. If you use 35mm and medium format gear and are looking for the ultimate in an ultra-light tripod of backpacking size, look no further than the 1228.
    Stainless steel weight hook at the base of the center column
    Fits comfortably on most camera backpacks
