The Series 5 6X Systematic 6-Section Giant Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features professional support, yet adaptable and flexible configurations. The Series 5 Giant tripods are ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses.

The Series 5 tripod has a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations the same tripod to support both photographic and video equipment. This tripod can be extended to 9.1' high and handle a DSLR with up to an 800mm lens.

Series 5 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.

        This tripod is perfect for shooting laydowns on location or in a studio. The height is beyond fantastic. It is easy to open, super light weight which is amazing when you are traveling and need the height. I would recommend to anyone and would buy it again.

        Best tripod I have ever used

        By Michael Baxter

          Best Uses

          • Architectural

          Comments about Gitzo Series 5 Systematic 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod (Giant):

          I am a full-time architectural photographer, and this is simply the best tripod I have ever used. I originally purchased this unit as a specialty item, in order to capture slightly elevated views of residential properties. I also own a telescopic mast, which is great for reaching heights of 10ft - 60ft, but at the expense of time and fatigue from the considerable set up. This tripod is extremely versatile, especially when paired with the Gitzo Systematic Series 5 Aluminum Geared Center Column (Long), which allows it to reach a height of 12.6ft. Amazingly, the unit compacts to a standard length when transporting. The (mostly) carbon fiber construction makes it light enough to use as a standard tripod. I don't worry that it's going to topple over, even at full height. again, I bought it as a specialty tool and it's become part of my mainstream workflow. There is a learning curve in raising the unit by yourself.

            I wanted a tripod sturdy enough to handle my telephotos up to 600mm +/- teleconverters. This tripod is a very nice addition to the 3-series Systematic I already own and use regularly. I don't think I'll need another tripod the rest of my life!

                I am using this tripod to lift my camera and my Faro scanner up high, where I can get the vantage point I'm looking for. This thing is rock solid and the legs extend very quickly.

                Great tripod.

                Very nice design and well built. A bit heavy though. I purchased this tripod cause I was considering the fact that you will always encounter slopes, no matter how slight. I probably will never have to buy another tripod again

                Love this tripod. Had the original mountaineer, it was too light. Love the G-locks, it makes adjusting heights easy. This is one tripod that will last a lifetime. My only complain is for the price I wish it came with a bag.
