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.

  • Gitzo Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber Tripod (X-Long)

    The Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber 4-Section X-Long Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features rigid support, yet adaptable and flexible configurations. The Series 3 X-Long tripods are ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses.

    The Series 3 tripod has 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. Despite a negligible weight of only 6.85 lb, this tripod can be extended to 78.9" high and handle a DSLR with up to a 400mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching--up to a 55 lb load capacity.

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

  • Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with Quick Release Base

    The Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with Quick Release Base is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.

    Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with 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 compatible quick release base. An Arca-type quick release plate is required and is available separately. Visit lens chart for a chart of compatible lens plates and cameras.

    The built-in industry-standard Arca-type quick release clamp makes it compatible with the many different plates available from Arca-Swiss, Acratech , Kirk, Wimberly, Really Right Stuff, Foba, etc.
    The head does not have separate controls for tension and locking, but the locking controls deliver smooth resistance with diminished "stick-slip".
    The overall height of the head is 9.25" (23.5cm), with the lens platform adjustable from 3.5 to 7.1" (8.9 x 18cm). The centerline of a balanced lens will be approximately 8.4" (21.3cm) above the bottom of the head.
    Distance from the mounting surface of the platform to the tilt axis: Adjustable from 1.1 to 4.8" (2.8 to 12.2cm).
    The head's redesigned panning base has zero play and the pan locking knob has been moved to the side of the head; this allows the user to easily operate both knobs with the same hand.
    Lobed "soft-touch" knobs provide a more comfortable grip and perform better when using gloves.
    Powder coated/anodized finish
    Made in the U.S.A.
