The choice of the most demanding professionals, Systematic Series 5 tripods now support up to 88lbs (40kg) of camera equipment and accessories, and are the most rigid tripods in the whole Gitzo range. Supporting the heaviest camera equipment and giving the stability needed by lenses up to 800mm, Systematic Series 5 tripods are available in 3- or 4-section models in standard or long versions, 4-section extra-long version, the iconic 6-section giant tripod and the 6-section ultra-compact tripod. This tripod was first introduced in 2012.

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.
All tripods and monopods in Series 1 and above are provided with 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. (4 sections tripods in Series 1 are excluded because the final leg section is too narrow to fit these ends).
G-Lock is 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.
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.
