The GT5543XLS is the extra-long 4-section model in the range, built for professional photographers who need to safely elevate their heavier equipment and longer lenses.
Series 5 models are Gitzo’s most rigid tripod and like the rest of the Systematic family, they set the standard in terms of strength, stability and modularity. The GT5543XLS’ top casting element opens and closes, allowing the tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding center column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling base or other Systematic accessories.
The GT5543XLS weighs 3.12 Kg and secures an outstanding payload of 40 Kg, reaching up to a height of 198 cm when extended. It can also go as low as 10 cm and folds down to 72 cm. A highly reliable, versatile and agile solution, this model features Gitzo's Carbon eXact tubes with G-Lock Ultra twist-locks that solidly connect the leg sections and protect them from dirt damage. New, ultra-stable, removable feet make this support even more secure. The Easy Link attachment provides enhanced versatility and ergonomics, enabling users to attach a wide array of optional accessories, such as a Manfrotto arms, LED lighting solutions, monitors, etc.
With a top leg diameter of 41.3mm and top casting that is larger than Series 3 and 4 Systematics, this tripod guarantees the ultimate sturdiness and stability.
Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre 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.
This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.
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.
