The GT3532 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT3532 has a load capacity of 46.3 lb, extends to a maximum height of 63.4", and folds down to 25.2" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 6.3". Its three-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

            Comments about Gitzo GT3532 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

            I love this tripod, and have paired it with an Arca Swiss Z1 bullhead by Wimberly along with the Wimberly Sidekick. I love the functionality of this setup. The only complaint that I might have, and this is based on only having used it once, is that the extension/retraction of the legs is a little cumbersome. I believe that I am just not accustomed to it, however. I would be interested in hearing other opinions. Overall, very happy with the purchase and definitely with B & H service.

                I have had a Gitzo GT1227 MK2 for about 10 years. It is still a good tripod. The GT3532 is sturdier, it takes just a couple seconds to remove the center extension tube so that I can get down to about 6", the legs do not turn when I am trying to lock position resulting in faster set-up and take-down, and the top spider has been redesigned making it easier to use.

                  Comments about Gitzo GT3532 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                  Great tripod with a high weight limit but still lightweight enough to be carried around all day. Production quality of this carbon fiber tripod is great - nothing one can complain about, maybe my wallet after the purchase. But I like to own quality as it pays off.
