The benefits of the Mountaineer
The Mountaineer Series are ultra-stiff tripods aimed at professional and advanced amateur photographers who own cameras with high resolution full-sized sensors and/or lenses with long focal lengths. It's built for users who need stability, who are often on the move and who are focused on landscape and architectural photography. Mountaineer tripods have been developed further to incorporate the latest Gitzo technology which increases rigidity, improves performance and ease of use for professional photographers.
Stiffer legs and structure:
- - The newly developed carbon tubes "Carbon eXact" contains High Modulus carbon fibre and has larger tube diameters
- - The top spider and column lock are redesigned for enhanced rigidity
- - The new Mountaineer is significantly more rigid than its predecessors and competitors, guaranteeing less shake and more image stability

Quick release plate
The Gitzo 3 Way Fluid Head features a quick release holder with which the plate (7cm rubberized Arca-Swiss compatible plate included) can be easily released. The width of the quick release holder can be adjusted using the side screw to make it compatible with other plates. To fix-in a plate (and camera) just a single firm pressing down is needed against the quick release holder.
90 degree rotateable plate holder
The new 90° rotatable plate holder allows greater working versatility and framing. Not only does it helps switch from portrait to landscape, it also makes it very easy to shoot overhead and below. This rotation prevents collision with tripods like the Systematic, which have a larger spider.
Smart spirit level rotation
The rotating sprit level supports accurate framing on all axes. The spirit level can easily be repositioned to suit the camera’s position.

- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
