Gitzo GS5513XLS overview

  • 1Description

The GS5513XLS Telescopic Center Column from Gitzo is a carbon fiber, rapid center column designed for use with series 5 Systematic tripods. The column may be installed by removing the tripod's base plate, inserting the center column, and locking the column in place.

The primary feature of the GS5513XLS is its telescoping design which utilizes four G-Lock Ultra equipped sections to extend from a minimum height of 26.4" to a maximum height of 81.9". The column's base may also be adjusted vertically via a disc-lock equipped collar which may be secured anywhere within its 16.1" range of travel.

The GS5513XLS weighs 2.1 lb, a manageable weight which compliments its professional quality and durability, and also includes a bottom mounted ballast hook for adding additional stabilizing weight if needed.

    Gitzo GS5513XLS reviews

    GS5513XLS Telescopic Center Column for Series 5 Systematic Tripods is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Systematic 5 Giant ain't enough... Six foot of telescoping center combined with 9' Gotzo Systematic 5 base means I can do low drone shots without the drone. Moreover, the payload means I can swap my Manfrotto Fluid head in and out with my RRS ballhead -- stills and video effortlessly. Vive le Telescoping column!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Center Column I optionally pair this GS5513XLS with a GT5543XLS. Although it is an expandable column, the GS5513XLS is the most rock-solid center column I have ever used, owing to the excellent support of the G-lock system. There is virtually no flex in the column until you fully extend the second leg. When all its leg sections are fully extended, it flexes a bit when one shakes it. Nothing to be concerned about, unless you're shooting at low shutter speeds or its windy, etc.� The column makes the�GT5543XLS more versatile. With it, I am able to take shots at a height of 14'-15'. But that's not it, one can also keep the tripod at its minimum height, while extending the center column.� This enables one to use the setup in tight spaces like a super stable monopod on which you can actually leave your gear unattended without worrying about it tipping over or someone tripping over a fully extended tripod leg. My only qualm is that the column had a very small abrasion on the carbon fiber near the base adjacent to the hook. Plus, the there was a bit of glue sticking out the sides between the black base attached to the carbon fiber column. This was a bit surprising to me, because the item cost over $400, and the GT5543XLS had literally arrived in the most pristine condition I have ever received any tripod, leaving me to believe Gitzo has superb quality control. Bottom Line: I highly recommend this center column. It has stability comparable to that of a geared column at a fraction of the weight. Plus, one can extend it much higher than a geared column, if necessary
