Gitzo GT5542LS Series 5 6X Carbon Fiber Systematic 4 Section Tripod
The Gitzo GT5542LS Systematic 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod is ideal for use with a pro DSLR with up to a 600mm lens, and provides an ultra-wide top platform for incredible stability.
Gitzo's top of the range Systematic tripods have been improved to provide even greater strength, stability and ease of use to exacting professional photographers choosing the ideal support for long lenses and heavy camera equipment. Systematic payloads are almost doubled by new high performance bonding and construction techniques, and by design refinements to the new triangular top casting which optimize weight distribution.
A tool-free ratchet locking lever replaces the previous nut and bolt when interchanging the modular center component, and a secondary safety mechanism with release button now protects equipment during and after changeovers.

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.
