Gitzo discounted -- in Europe

The Gitzo GT1550T tripod kit is currently on sale for 299 in the UK, and the GT1541T goes for 229.

I should probably not mention the company here, but you'll find it instantly when you go to gitzo gt1541t - Google Product Search

I bought both, i.e. the GT1541T after my wife confiscated the GT1550T

Caveat though: I have a hunch that they are not philanthropists, they merely want to clear their warehouses for the "new and improved" Gitzo traveler collection that was announced on November 2. So, if you take the bait, your cheap Gitzo may be outdated very soon.

There's also a 'scrappage scheme' advertised in the photography magazines.

Trade in your old tripod for 60, an old head for 30, together 100, and old monopods for 20, against some of the Gitzo range at their "Five Star Dealers".

That old tripod in the charity shop for a fiver is worth a second look!

Yeah gitzo loves to swap out their models and then remove any reference to the previous models from essentially the entire internet! It makes comparing a pain in the butt. Of course, you generally buy a good tripod once, so I guess their logic is that the newest current model is the only one you're likely to look at.

My Gitzo is now at least 25 years old, and as good as new. But I think I'll take advantage of this offer and get an upgrade.
That should take me into 'old age'
