Rock Solid Stability

GM4562 leverages a larger tube size (top leg diameter 1.46 in / 37.0 mm) and stiff Carbon eXact tubes to deliver rock solid stability for professional DSLRs, long lenses, and video cameras. At the same time, it is extremely lightweight and slim enough to grip comfortably. Gitzo’s G-Lock Ultra system makes the tubing even stronger by rigidly connecting the leg sections, protecting joints from moisture and dirt so you can enjoy shooting outdoors with peace of mind!

Impressive Load Capacity

The GM4562 can be extended up to 60.63 in (154 cm) while securely supporting an impressive 66.14 lbs (30 kg) weight of equipment. It weighs just 1.47 lbs (670 grams), folds down to only 17.32 in (44 cm), and is easy to pack in a backpack during a hike in the mountains.

This model’s 6 section structure is designed to enhance its overall balance. It features a handy, reversible 1/4″ and 3/8″ mounting thread for attaching various types of cameras, lenses, and heads.

Innovative Rubber Foot with Pivoting Ball Joint

The base features an innovative 1.96 in (50 mm) rubber foot with a pivoting ball joint for smooth movement that is perfect for capturing 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.

Carry on Your Belt or Pocket with Ease

It also features Gitzo’s signature ergonomic textured hand grip and a removable wrist strap for increased security, allowing the monopod to hang from your belt or pocket.

Please see the Specifications tab below for additional information.


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.
