The Grand Induro GIT404XL is a 4 Series/4 Section Extra Long modular, flat base tripod for the professional photographer. Featuring the new Stealth carbon fiber pattern, this tripod includes a flat top plate as standard and accepts the full line of Grand Induro accessories. Secured with a ratchet style lock lever, this top plate can be replaced with a double-ended hand crank, leveling base and a video bowl all without the use of any tools. Each Grand Induro tripod spider has three independent leg positions allowing you to handle uneven terrain and achieve low-level shots. Also located on the spider is a 3/8"-16 accessory mount with a 1/4"-20 insert. The ovoid pivoting rubber feet provide extra grip whether you’re shooting indoors or outdoors. New rugged grips have been added with hook and loop strips making them interchangeable. The Grand Induro series is ideal for the most demanding photographer, especially large format and long lens user. Included with each Grand Induro tripod is a flat plate as well as a deluxe carrying case with dolly and backpack straps for easy transport.
