About Gitzo GT3542XL

Gitzo's Systematic tripods are modular, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for center columns, levelling bases and other components. Because they have leg angle settings but no column as standard, Systematic tripods are all capable of near-groud level shooting. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fibre with Gitzo's efficient G-locks.

The GT3542XLS is an extra-long 4-section tripod that reaches overhead level when fully open. It belongs to Gitzo Series 3 - a particularly flexible and adaptable size, ideal for use with lenses up to 400mm and under loads of up to 25kg.

Gitzo GT3542XL Features

  • G-Lock: 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 centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
  • 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.

Stable, Well-made, Really Tall!


from Bay Area, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The tripod has been perfect for the 1DX and 70-200 I have been using - especially with a Arca-Swiss Z1 dp ball-head, which sits on top of the tripod perfectly. It is also really tall so I don't really need to extend all 3 extendable sections, usually one and half would do on flat ground.

from Ohio  -  Photo Enthusiast

Replaces tired, old, short, heavy tripod. Incredible stability. Sets up quickly. Sure it costs a lot but then you won't need to buy another.
