Gitzo GT3542LS overview

  • 1Description

The Gitzo GT3542LS Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Oben GH-50 Gimbal Head is a great choice for those looking for a tripod kit that features rigid support and versatile movement. This Series 3 Long tripod is ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, while the Oben GH-50 gimbal head is ideal for supporting large telephoto lenses.

These Series 3 tripod legs have 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. Due to the Gitzo 6X carbon fiber weave, the tripod and head achieve a negligible weight of only 10 lb. With the head mounted the tripod can be extended to a maximum height of 67". This kit can also be utilized to support a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching and holds up to 50 lb.

It is also worth noting that Series 3 tripods have an Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), G-Lock, and brushed matte black finish for improved locking performance and minimized reflectivity.

The included Oben GH-50 Gimbal Head is an ideal match for these Series 3 legs. With separate locks for the 360° panning base and swinging arm, the GH-50 is ideal for shooting sporting events, birds in flight, or other fast moving subjects.

The quick-release bracket attaches to the vertical arm with dovetails and can be raised or lowered 4.25" to adjust for different sized lenses. The included quick-release plate is Arca-type compatible, has safety-stop screws to prevent accidental release, and is 120mm long. Numbered scales along the panning base and the vertical arm allow you to easily repeat your setup for various lens and camera combinations.

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.
    Feet
    Removable rubber feet, spiked feet, and snow shoe feet are included for stability on a variety of surfaces.
    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.
