Gitzo Celebrates 100th Anniversary!Editor - 23rd October 2017
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.
Gitzo initiated the travel tripod era by combining stability with the freedom to embrace creativity. To mark its 100th anniversary, the brand is redefining excellence in its field with the launch of several highly exclusive products, including the iconic Gitzo Century camera bag Collection.
This exquisite new selection of photography bags are designed especially for Gitzo Traveler fans who own premium cameras and require similar standards of premium quality and detail in their photography bags.
All the models in Gitzo’s new range are built to meet the needs of the world’s most discerning, style-conscious photographers. The bags have been meticulously designed and crafted in Italy out of premium materials. They are a highly appealing combination of Genuine Italian cow leather
crafted to resemble carbon fibre that is reminiscent of Gitzo Traveler tripod legs, and wear- resistant Nylon that guarantees high resistance to scratches and abrasions and is water-repellent.
The range is comprised of the GITZO Century Traveler backpack, which redefines the notion of premium functional photography bag. Ensuring comfort while providing every desirable feature, this backpack has a roomy internal insert that easily accommodates a medium-size DSLR or a Premium CSC with 70-200/2.8 lens attached plus 2 additional lenses. The Gitzo Century Traveler Backpack can also hold a DJI Mavic Pro with its remote control and accessories.
The double side access gives owners the choice of reaching for their
equipment from right or left side, without taking the backpack off.
The elegant front opening is the perfect carrying solution for your 0 and 1
Series Gitzo Traveler or similar sized tripod. The removable insert provides the freedom to choose whether to pack photography gear and personal items, or effortlessly turn it into a luxurious day pack. Featured video tutorial
