Gitzo Announce Premium 100yr Anniversary Tripod

- 7 years ago

Gitzo, the world-renowned manufacturer of professional camera equipment, is celebrating one hundred years of innovation by launching an exclusive, limited-edition travel tripod – the 100 Year Anniversary Edition

Gitzo is widely regarded as having initiated the travel tripod era, creating quality products that are designed to be companions for life. To celebrate their first 100 years of existence, Gitzo has launched the new 100Y “DEFINING TOMORROW” logo, referencing infinity and the creations the company has yet to roll out.

This, limited edition run of only 1917 pieces, giving a nod to Gitzo’s year of foundation, will carry the number of each piece laser engraved on one leg [1/1917 to 1917/1917]

The new 100 Year Anniversary Edition Tripod isn’t just a token anniversary product. It stands as a high-performance professional tool featuring innovative design and the very latest in tripod technology and will be available worldwide in an exclusive limited edition run of only 1917 pieces, giving a nod to Gitzo’s year of foundation, with the number of each piece laser engraved on one leg [1/1917 to 1917/1917]. Each tripod will include a certificate of authenticity signed by Gitzo’s CEO, and includes the name of the craftsman who created each piece.
