Gitzo Series 3 6x Systematic GT3542LS Carbon Tripod adds the maximum sturdiness since the ball head is mounted directly on top of the tripod legs and maintains the light weight. By having 4-section legs, it is more compact when collapsed.
Gitzo GT3542L Features
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 centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions
Leg Ends: 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
Ocean-Lock: The Ocean-Lock is a special version of Gitzo G-Lock of which it maintains the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived form the automation industry, it minimizes the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms
ALR: Gitzo has introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation 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
Ratchet Locking Lever: Allows you to easily and securely engage and disengage the top plate or other systematic accessories
