Gitzo GT5543XLS Systematic, Series 5 XL, 4 sections Carbon Fibre Tripod Summary

This particular model is one of the tallest and most stable of all Gitzo tripods. This makes the Gitzo GT5543XLS Systematic, Series 5 XL, 4 sections Carbon Fibre Tripod perfect for extremely long lenses and heavy camera set-ups, ideal for discerning professionals who capture sports, wildlife and landscape photography.

Not only are Systematic Gitzo's strongest and most stable carbon fibre 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 centre column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling base or other Systematic accessories.

Key features

  • Extremely rigid, 4-section XL height pro carbon fibre tripod
    Reaches 198 cm high without a centre column, perfect for slopes and hills
  • Secure leg-locks and quick operation with the latest G-lock Ultra
  • Excellent versatility from the modular accessories range
  • Incredibly strong, ideal for the heaviest professional camera equipment
  • Wider and adaptable feet for unbeatable stability
  • Five Year Extended Warranty after registration

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.

GT5543XLS is the 4 section extra long model, for users requiring overhead height (at almost 2m tall)
