About this item

The Gitzo Ocean Systematic Series 5 GT5542LOS Carbon Tripod is designed and built for professional performance, maintenance-free durability and resistance against seawater, humidity and other aggressive natural environments. Precision-tooled aluminum parts have a corrosion-resistance finishing, while specially redesigned leg collars on the 6X carbon fiber legs protect each section of tube against sand, dust and mud and expel any water trapped inside tube sections by working as an air cushion.

The GT5542LOS is a modular Systematic tripod, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, leveling bases and other components designed for specific applications. A ratchet lever lock makes interchanging components fast and easy, while a new secondary safety catch protects centre components and attached camera equipment against accidental damage, even if the centre component is inadvertently left unlocked. Adding to the set up speed and convenience - vitally important in extreme conditions and remote locations - is the Ocean G-Lock system, which requires only a quarter turn to lock or unblock each leg section.

Systematic tripod is Gitzo's strongest and most stable, with a number of design and construction features combining to offer unparalleled load capacities: the triangular design of the Systematic shoulder element distributes weigh more safely, efficiently and evenly than ever and a new bonding process between leg tubes and metal components has almost doubled payloads. Built-in spiked feet add stability and safety, without sacrificing set-up speed. The GT5542LOS is a Gitzo Series 5 tripod - the largest and strongest in the Ocean range.

Key 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
  • 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: 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
  • Carbon fiber tube 6X: Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties
