Not only are the Gitzo’s strongest and most stable tripods, the Systematic family also set the standard in terms of modularity. The GT4553S’ top casting element opens and closes allowing the tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding centre column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling base or other Systematic accessories.
The GT4553S weighs 2.23 Kg and secures an impressive payload of 25 Kg. It reaches as low as 10 cm up to 136 cm and folds down to 48 cm. A highly reliable, versatile solution that’s easy to take anywhere, this model features Gitzo'sCarbon 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 37 mm, GT4553S is both sturdier and compact (its top casting is shared with Series 3 models) and has a reduced folded length with its 5-section construction. It replaces the GT4552TS. This is a very popular choice with exacting professionals looking for a reliable and stable support able to carry heavy professional equipment with long lenses on top.
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.
