The Series 4 6X Systematic 4-Section Long Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features rigid carbon fiber support, yet adaptable and flexible configurations. The Series 4 Long tripods are ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses.

The Series 4 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 5.1 lb, this tripod can be extended to 5.1' high and handle a DSLR with up to a 600mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching.

Series 4 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.

Note:Note: Carbon fiber is now used on all Systematic Series 4 tripods, replacing previous aluminum versions.

      Awesome

      By Mike T

      from Midlands, UK

      Comments about Gitzo Series 4 6X Systematic 4-Section Tripod (Long):

      Thanks to B&H having a full display of Gitzso tripods I was able to confirm my choice against the 3 and 5 tripods. Together with a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Head this is an awesome setup with my Canon 500 f/4. The height that the tripod extends to means it suitable for just about anybody. It provides a really stable base feeling rock solid with camera/lens combo. Very easy to setup and take down with the quick release locks on the legs and the variable angle adjustment is simple and effective to use. The weight is noticeably lighter than the 5 series
      The tripod is expensive but you get one of the best carbon fibre tripods going for your money

      Comments about Gitzo Series 4 6X Systematic 4-Section Tripod (Long):

      It is an overview. Hope the figure attached will help. Apologies for the overcrowded information. Gitzo company does not provide much information. This is the reason of 4* rating.At the top/shoulder part of the tripod, Gitzo Systematic, IMO may be one of the best tripods, due to the built in locking/tightening mechanism of the top flat plate, and easiness of replacement.At the legs level, it may be seconded by(next after) the equivalent size from RRS, in this case, the Versa 3 tripods. Do not know about other brands.At the feet level, again, could be one of the best, due to the large selection of feet accessories. Add to this, the availability of Gitzo spare parts.These are just a personal opinion.This tripod is not for travelers. Though, digital photographers today are looking for a feather weight tripods, this tripod is not overdo for SLR digital applications. But, at the same time it is a light tripod and needs a proper technique when used with heavy weighted large format cameras(like any other similar tripod).* Use a large size tripod head, clamp and camera plate.* Physics still the same, heavier is sturdier. Hook at the bottom of the top plate is not optional in all CF tripods. Add a sand bag or use a triangular rock/weight bag tightened to the upper leg sections. Watch movement.* Extend the tripod legs enough, but not completely. Leave ~2 inches of each leg section inside the upper tube. Tighten the G-Locks well.* Use larger rubber/spike feet when proper. Tighten it periodically, or use semi-permanent liquid.Other precautions at camera level, ground, etc.Hope this useful.

          I only have one regret: that I didn't buy a Gitzo a few years ago. I use this in conjunction with a Really Right Stuff BH-55 head. It is rock solid. The heaviest lens I use is the 300 F2.8 L IS mk I lens and it hold that with no issues at all.

              I use the tripod for wildlife photography and it provides a sturdy base for heavy lenses. Very fast setup and and legs securely rotate in place. It even comes with replacement feet and replacement parts should a repair need to be made on the leg locking assembly.
