Lightweight Design

The GM4552L is a professional, tall monopod that leverages larger tube sizes (top leg diameter 37.0 mm) and stiff Carbon eXact tubes to provide rock solid stability even when extended to its maximum height of 74.80 inches (190 cm), keeping its weight to an absolute minimum.

Impressive Gear Support

GM4552L securely supports an impressive 66.13 lbs (30 kg) of camera equipment and weighs only 1.60 lbs (730 grams). Gitzo’s G-Lock Ultra system makes the tubing stronger even more by rigidly connecting the leg sections which protects the joints from moisture and dirt. The monopod also features a convenient, reversible ¼″ and ⅜″ mounting thread for attaching various types of cameras, lenses, and heads.

This tall monopod can also be conveniently folded to just 1.83 ft (56 cm), making it easy to pack and take it with you or strap onto your backpack for a trip in the field.

Innovative Base with Pivoting Ball Joint

The GM4552L base features an innovative 1.97″ (50 mm) rubber foot with a pivoting ball joint for smooth movement that is perfect for easily photographing moving subjects. It provides solid footing and maximum stability on any surface and can be removed when necessary and replaced with optional feet or metal spikes.

Easy to Carry

The monopod also features Gitzo’s signature ergonomic textured hand grip and a removable wrist strap for increased security, allowing you to move freely with your monopod attached to a belt or clothing.

Specifications

What is carbon eXact?

Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fiber composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fiber in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.

What is g-lock ultra?

Gitzo’s G-lock system has been redesigned from the inside out; G-lock Ultra is smoother and softer to use, and is designed to reduce dust and grit from getting in.
