This Gitzo GS5511S Rapid Carbon Fiber Center Column is for use with Series 4 and 5 6x tripods in the Systematic line. Since these tripods accept interchangeable center columns, this compact column can be used to take full advantage of the variable leg spread on these units, so that you are not inhibited by the length of the column as to how low you can go.

This one holds my Sinar P2 no problems.
Using on a series 5 carbon fiber Gitzo tripod. Wanted to gain some height without much compromising of stabilty. There is no perceptible difference in stabilty with or without the center column on this large tripod. Other, smaller tripods may differ.
