Gitzo GT3542 overview

  • 1Description

The GT3542 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT3542 has a load capacity of 46.3 lb, extends to a maximum height of 63.8", and folds down to 21.3" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 5.9". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

    Gitzo GT3542 reviews

    GT3542 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, quality tripod. This is my second Gitzo tripod. The first one is the light, travel variety, lovely for long hikes, but struggled under the weight of a 400mm f2.8 lens and the weight I had to add to compensate for wind. In all fairness, that is not what it was designed for. This tripod is built like a tank, very sturdy. Extremely user friendly, just like the travel variety, easy to set up, folds small to make travel easy and considering the size, it is extremely light. Put a Wimberely Gimball head on it and you have a perfect foundation for long lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tripod I had a manfrotto stand and used it alot to take landscaping photos. On occasion the wind would make the image slightly out of focus. With the Gitzo you can hang a bag full of rocks for extra stability. In addition the twist locks on the legs are much easier to set the tripod just right especially if you are not on level ground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Tripod This is a heavy duty tripod that is very stable. The legs are strong. I am using it with all my lenses, but especially with my 600mm legs with a Wimberley head. Works great, you will not be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very stable. Over all, a very stable tripod, even with its center column in use! I do have two issues that bother me; 1) for the price range of this tripod (almost $1000), Gitzo gives you the cheapest cover available (almost paper-like), seriously they need to step-up their game. 2) An O-ring on the bottom of the center column falls off easily (its there to prevent the metal hook assembly (on the bottom of the column) from scratching/marring the carbon fiber legs (when the tripod is in the closed position).
