YouTube member Arthur Woo writes in and shares his thoughts on the Gitzo 1542T Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod. [Thanks Arthur]. At $550 dollars (without ball head) it's pretty darn expensive, but it's actually one of Gitzo's least expensive travel tripods. For those with that have been looking towards the Gitzo Carbon Fiber systems, you can find the 1542T via Amazon (click here).
