Gitzo GT3542XLS overview

  • 1Description

The Gitzo GT3542XLS Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Wimberley WH-200 II Gimbal Head is a great choice for those looking for a tripod kit that features rigid support and versatile movement. This Series 3 Extra-Long tripod is ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, while the WH-200 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 86". This kit can also be utilized to support a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching and holds up to 55 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 Wimberley WH-200 II is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to align the camera's center of gravity and the tilt axis of the head.

Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a robust camera/lens combo's (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) movements can be controlled with only one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.

The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type quick release base. An Arca-style quick-release plate is required and is available separately. Visit the lens chart for a chart of compatible lens plates and cameras.
