The Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber 3-Section Standard Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features rigid support, yet adaptable and flexible configurations. The Series 3 Standard tripods are ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses.

The Series 3 tripod has a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations, in as little as 15 seconds, and the same tripod can support both photographic and video equipment. Despite a negligible weight of only 4.1 lb, this tripod can be extended to 4.3' high and handle a DSLR with up to a 400mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching--up to a 55 lb load capacity.

Series 3 tripods have an Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), G-Lock, and brushed matte black finish for improved locking performance and minimized reflectivity. A wide selection of accessories allows you to keep growing your system according to your future needs, whether they are still life, macro, outdoor, sport or wildlife applications.

Anti Leg Rotation
This tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
G-Lock
For a strong, fast, and safer locking mechanism, G-Lock's special design provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock becomes.
Leg Ends
With removable rubber feet, the Series 3 allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet.
Hook
A built-in hook allows you to hang a stabilizing weight, like a full camera bag or a sand bag, from the bottom of the tripod head plate. This is helpful when using long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.

            easy to setup and close down, sturdy and beautifully made, perfect for super telephoto lenses.
            also have the 2500 series which I travel with when I am using smaller lenses.
            excellent craftsmanship.

              Comments about Gitzo Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber 3-Section Tripod (Standard):

              Well designed for quick set up, very stable (which is the number one reason to buy it) and quite light. I can't think of a con except it is fairly expensive. But hay, it should last for many years of use.

                I use this tripod for my landscape photography. It is much better than my previous one, especially during the winter time. Easy to set up on the site. G-lock is a very good feature. Strong construction, very stable. I like it very much.

                The right stuff for great photography! The Gitzo GT3532 series 3 and Arca-Swiss Z1 are well engineered and manufactured. This rig is ideal for pan-o, HDR and any other photography that will benefit from great stability. The Gitzo Systematic Series offers better flexibility for future accessories and configuration. You can't find better value than this world class, Pro Tripod and head. This tripod is a joy to use.

                  I love shooting wild birds in various fileds, so that light weight and easy handling are essential function.
                  when extend or fold , this is easy to work not spinning.

                    I use the tripod with my Nikon Fieldscope for digiscoping and am experiencing a much better solid support, with less vibration, and than any other tripod I've used. Very satisfied with my investment!
