Gitzo GT4553S Systematic Series 4, 5-section Carbon Tripod Summary

Systematic is the choice of exacting professional photographers who use long lenses and heavy cameras. The Gitzo GT4553S Systematic Series 4, 5-Section Carbon Tripod weighs 2.23 Kg and secures an impressive 28 Kg payload. It reaches as low as 10 cm for ground-level shooting and up to 136 cm, and folds down to 48 cm for transport.


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 adaptor, leveling base or other Systematic accessories.


The latest range of Gitzo carbon tripods feature 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.

Key features

  • 5-Section carbon fibre tripods which compacts down short for transport and travel
  • Secure G-lock Ultra leg-locks
  • Modular accessories provide excellent versatility
  • Powerful solution for rigidity and lightness
  • Wider adaptable feet provide good stability

Series 4 (top leg diameter 37.0mm) is becoming popular thanks to the rigidity from large leg diameters, while the top casting (shared with Series 3 models) is less less bulky and therefore easier to store and carry.

GT4553S has a short folded length with its 5-section construction. It replaces the GT4552TS.
