The originally French, and now Italian, company Gitzo produced a wide range of tripods. From the 1960s onwards the pattern of tripods was uniform, based on a structure of "series' with increasing tube diameter with a set type of names.

  • 00 Table 5/8")
  • 0 Weekend 3/4")
  • 1 Sport (7/8")
  • 2 Reporter/Mountaineer (1-1/8")
  • 3 Studex & Inter Pro Studex (1-1/4")
  • 4 Pro Studex (1-1/2")
  • 5 Tele Studex (1-5/8")

From 1970 onwards the tripods were painted in the distinctive “Noir Decor” hammered finish.


Terminology and Chronology of Gitzo TripodsEdit

Over the duration of its operations, Gitzo produced an astonishing (and confusing) array of tripod models and variations. The following listing is reasonably complete for the 1980s and 1990s. It will be expanded soon.
