The Series 4 6X Systematic 5-Section Giant 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 Giant 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 6.0 lb, this tripod can be extended to 7.9' 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.
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.
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.

      Comments about Gitzo Series 4 6X Systematic 5-Section Tripod (Giant):

      I chose this rather than a crane to shoot straight down on sidewalks to photograph brick paving patterns without the distortion and vignetting of a wideangle lens. It worked like a charm for this purpose, providing a wide stance to permit flexible illumination with flash and reflectors.
      It also opened up a whole new set of possibilities for working in urban areas and along roadways in the country. Getting your camera up to 8 feet eliminates a lot of foreground clutter, shoots over pedestrians, parked cars, fences, brush, and changes perspective enough to eliminate keystoning in a lot of shots, particularly when combined with a PC lens.
      In addition, unextended or with up to 3 extension, it provides a much more stable platform than my 2-series for shooting birds.
      Very light for the height, highly recommended.
