The Gitzo Légende tripod and backpack teased last week has now been officially announced. In what might be a strange turn for a company like Gitzo, the new kit is being launched via Indiegogo. Unlike a lot of crowdfunding platform campaigns, though, given who’s running this one, I think we can be pretty sure this one will deliver.
The Légende is a 2-part kit, comprised of a lightweight carbon fibre tripod and backpack. It takes a somewhat new eco-friendly approach to product design for the photography industry, with the backpack being composed of primarily recycled materials and the tripod having an unlimited warranty with 100% replaceable parts (and 70% of them can be shipped out and replaced by the user).
