Gitzo Systematic tripods are the strongest and most stable tripods available in the market and offer unsurpassed flexibility of use. These tripods are a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations. The same tripod can serve both as a video and a photographic support. A wide selection of accessories allow you to keep growing your system according to your future needs, for still life, macro, outdoor, sport and wildlife applications.
The GT3542XLS model has excellent overall performance with great torsion rigidity, in a size that makes it particularly flexible and adaptable, Series 3 is ideal for use with lenses up to 400mm. Available in 3- or 4-section models, each in either standard or long versions, or an additional extra-long 4-section version.
Gitzo GT3542XLS Features: G-Lock: G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock. Hook: This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions. Leg Ends: All tripods and monopods in Series 1 and above are provided with removable rubber feet. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes. (4 sections tripods in Series 1 are excluded because the final leg section is too narrow to fit these ends). Anti Leg Rotation: Introducing a new Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
