Gitzo 2541: more rigid/stable, pinch lighter, couple inches longer (folded), an inch shorter extended, and the real big factor, 6.69" minimum height ("Ground Level Set"), $150.00 dollars more.
Induro CT-214: Very nice/stable (not as good as Gitzo), shorter folded, longer extended, pinch heavier, big easy to work grip locks, padded/insulated legs, great quality bag with strap and room for a ball head around 4.5" high, built in level, tool kit in pouch, spiked feet included, minimum height 5.9" but wait...you need to get a second short column (ELC-2 @ +$50.00 +6oz) to reach that, otherwise it's about 13", $150.00 less.
Conclusion: Gitzo 2541 is better tripod, but the Induro CT-214 is, by far, a better deal; you get loads of options for less money, and honestly, it's a beautiful tripod, well made, and gives a feeling of great craftsmanship. I think my numbers came out to being $270.00 more to option out the Gitzo with the features the Induro includes in its base price (and that is already taking into account the cost of adding the short column).
I recommend the CT-214 as a great sweet-spot for an investment in a set of legs: great options, fine tripod, and a reasonable price for a high quality product.
This tripod is over $650 for just the legs, that's expensive!
But actually it's not for a Carbon Fiber tripod of this size. I did a lot of comparing, and when you get into tripods that are around 6 feet tall at just the leg height, then you are in a different size category than say a Manfrotto 055, which is short of 6 foot even with the center column fully extended. Compared to others in this size category, the Induro was nearly $270 cheaper than an equivalent Gitzo or other quality brands that I was looking at in this height range.
I "needed" a larger, beefier tripod than the Manfrotto, and had read early on that ones with legs only (no center column) were the most stable, so that is what I started looking for. But after doing the research and deciding on the value of the Induro CT414, I figured I'd just use it without extending the column, so it wasn't a negative that it had one. Well it turns out that the center column of the CT414 is so beefy that it's absolutely rock solid steady, and for small height adjustments, far handier and quicker than walking around and adjusting all three legs individually. I have absolutely no concern regarding pivot-wobble from using the center column of the Induro, which I would get with the Manfrotto, making me not want to use the column even though I often had to, to get enough height.
If you are concerned about quality... don't be.
It's built super solid, looks and feels great, and all the joints and leg locks are smooth and operate cleanly, plus they are rated very highly for moisture and sand resistance.Read more ›
When I received this tripod and ballhead, I immediately was reassured that I had made the right choice. Very compact, very lightweight and VERY solid. I packed the tripod and ballhead in my small suitcase with no problem. My photo project included making a series of HDR images, including some very long exposures for HDR in Notre Dame. This requires ensuring the camera does not move. I was using my Nikon D700 with a 70-200 f2.8 lens. The tripod supported this kit with no difficulty. If I had planned to take a larger lens, I might have gotten the next size up Induro.
This tripod and ballhead were great. They allowed for fast, easy set up and adjustment. There is a bag hook under the center column to increase stability. The rubber tips on the legs can be quickly swapped out for metal spikes. I used this combination on cobblestones, in 12th century churches, parking lots, and fields in the French countryside. Most importantly is that I USED IT.Read more ›
