Gitzo Systematic Tripod GT5543LS
Systematic is the choice of exacting professional photographers who use long lenses and heavy cameras. Not only are Systematic Gitzo’s strongest and most stable tripods, they’re also modular, with a top casting element that opens and closes to allow each tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding center column, video half-ball adapter, leveling base or other Systematic accessories. The latest range features Carbon eXact tubes, new ultra-stable feet and the Easy Link attachment, making the Systematic even more stable, versatile, and ergonomic. The Easy Link attachment (3/8'' thread) allows the user to attach various accessories such as a Manfrotto arm to use lighting accessories.
Series 5 (top leg diameter 41.3mm) is the choice of the most demanding professionals, being the most rigid tripods in the whole Gitzo range. The top casting is larger than that of Series 3 & 4 Systematics in order to provide maximum stability.
GT5543LS is the 4 section long model, a size very popular for its balance between closed length and sufficient height even without a column. It replaces the GT5542LS.
Benefits and Features
Ultimate stability - new tubes and feet:
The leg tubes and feet have been updated with latest innovations to make the ultra-stable Systematic Tripod even more stable.>Carbon eXact tubes optimise fibre composition for each tube size, to make the narrower tubes stiffer, and the wider tubes lighter compared to the predecessors’ Carbon 6X tubes. New big feet, with 50mm diameter with an integrated ball, realize ultimate stability by preventing slipping and movement. Standard feet (33mm) are included as well.
Improved ergonomics – new leg locks and leg angle selectors:
G-lock Ultra has even more comfortable operation and reduced risk of dust entering the locking mechanism. Leg angle selectors offer more grip room, and feature a built-in spring to help speed up switches between the 3 leg angles.
More versatile - Easy Link attachment:
An Easy Link attachment (3/8” thread) is added, allowing the user to attach various accessories, expanding the functionalities of the tripod for advanced shooting techniques.
