Gitzo Mountaineer Overview

The GT3542L 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 GT3542L has a load capacity of 46.3 lb, extends to a maximum height of 70.1", and folds down to 23.2" 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 6.3". 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.

question

Why does is this tripod (GT3542L) better priced than other Gitzo's? (At $689 this seems a bargain compared to many similar models that have lower load specs or don't hit the 70 mark. This one seems a fit to me - just want to assure I'm getting Gitzo quality).
Asked by: Christopher
I purchased this model a year ago for my wife. It is definitely top of the line Gitzo quality. Plan to buy another one for her for this Christmas. I have also looked at some of the other models, but can find no differences in quality or features. Just be glad you are getting a good deal from B&H.

question

Does the Gitzo Center Column Bubble Level GLEVEL1 or GLEVEL2 fit on this tripod, too? I can't find any specific bubble level for series 3.Thank you, Philip
Asked by: Anonymous
No, sorry neither will fit on a 3 series gitzo. If you need a bubble level, I would recommend one that attaches to the hotshoe of your camera.

question

What leveling base is recommended for this tripod? I am interested in shooting panoramas with a RRS gimbal head.
Asked by: Anonymous
I purchase this tripod for my Tamron 150-600 mm lens. I do use a Gimbal head and it does work fine. I don't shoot panoramas but seems like a gimbal head could work fine for that application if it has markings on pivot points.

question

Is this tripod sturdy enough for a Nikon 600/4 VR mounted on a full Wimberley (WH-200)?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you found my name associated with the purchase of this tripod, then the answer is yes. I purchased this with a full Wimberley and have trusted this set up with my Nikon 600/4 VR. I have complete confidence with the strength and ease of use with my big lens mounted on this. I cannot imagine anything better.

Trying to compare the Gitzo GT3542L & the GT2543L to some of the CF tripods from Induro. Anybody care to give me your 2 Cents?

question

How would the Gitzo GIGH5380S ball head work with the GT3542 tripod for bird photography with a canon 100-400 lens on a 5D mark 3?
Asked by: Charles
I use a Wimberly head on this tripod for bird photography with both the Cannon 100 to 400 lens and the Cannon 600mm lens. I find it is much easier to stay on a bird with the Wimberly head that the Gitzo ball head that I previously used. The balance is much better.
