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

      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

        Comments about Gitzo Series 5 6X Systematic 6-Section 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.

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

          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!

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

              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

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

              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.
