Gitzo GM4552L overview

  • 1Description

The GM4552L Series 4 Monopod from Gitzo is a 5-section, lightweight carbon fiber support designed as the tallest model in Gitzo's monopod line up. Utilizing Gitzo's patented G-Lock Ultras, the GM4552L has the ability to support up to an impressive 66 lb while weighing just 1.6 lb.

The monopod reaches a maximum height of 74.8", allowing the user to shoot above crowds or from a slightly elevated position. As all Gitzo monopods, it features a reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 mounting thread for adding an optional head if even more height or articulation is needed. Despite its impressive height, it's 5-section design allows the monopod to collapse down to just 22" for transport or storage.

Maintaining Gitzo's reputation for strength, the GM4552L utilizes 6X Carbon eXact tubing and patented G-Lock Ultra designs to ensure professional performance without the bulk. The 6-layer carbon weave allows the monopod to maintain maximum strength while keeping weight to an absolute minimum, while the G-Lock Ultras also add to the tubing's strength by providing a rigid connection between leg sections and protecting the joints from dust, dirt, and moisture.

At the monopod's base is a redesigned rubber foot that features a pivoting ball-joint for smooth tilts and twists. Users may also remove the foot if necessary and replace it with optional rubber feet or an optional metal spike. The GM4552L also features Gitzo's standard textured hand grip for enhanced ergonomics and a removable wrist strap for increased security.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY solid monopod I have been acquiring ever bigger glass and needed a more solid monopod than I was previously using, and decided to pull the trigger on the latest greatest Gitzo tall monopod. I have used it both headless as well as with a Really Right Stuff MH-01 head. After several outings with it, I am very happy. It is really quite solid, and also very lightweight. The variable rigidity sections really seem to work. Even when extending the thinnest section it exhibits a high degree of rigidity. This is a pro piece of equipment, with the highest quality and cutting edge craftsmanship. At first I was a bit dubious about the new style of pivoting foot that Gitzo adopted, but after using it I have to say that it is quite nice and adds to a very smooth experience, especially for a monopod. I bought additional simple rubber feet in case I want to swap, but so far I haven't felt any desire to do so. Here is a tip for users: If the leg sections are extended all the way out, then the monopod will bend slightly at the joints under force. But I found that if I leave an inch or so unextended in each segment, the monopod is extremely rigid after twisting the locks and has no lateral flexibility whatsoever. Of course this shortens it by a few inches, but it is so long to begin that it has many inches to spare (especially if you add a few inches more with a head).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would give this 0 stars if possible. Broken w first use. I purchased this to hold my very expensive Nikon lenses. The monopod broke at the first joint. I can not even put it back together. I would not expect this from such an expensive product. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I was about to purchase a Gitzo tripod but now with the experience Ive had with the Gitzo monopod, I will not even consider purchasing another Gitzo product or any product made by this manufacturer.
