Gitzo GSLVLS Overview

The GSLVLS Leveling Base from Gitzo is a basic leveling accessory designed for use with the Systematic series of tripods.

Ideal for flat base tripod heads, the GSLVLS is designed to help users level a standard tripod or fluid head in order to maintain level horizons and reduce time-consuming post processing corrections. Use of the leveling base requires a 75mm ball adapter which is available for all series 3, 4, & 5 Systematic tripod legs.

The leveling base features a lightweight aluminum construction which adds a negligible 0.8 lb to your existing tripod setup. The standard 3/8"-16 top mounting screw will accommodate most tripod heads and is connected to a tightening lever to secure the head and prevent unwanted twisting.

Gitzo quality and a must to have for a systematic tripod

Simply awesome.

This is an excellent leveling base. The tightening knob is very easy to set and get a good tight grip, even with a heavy load. I haven’t had any issues with coming loose and it’s very easy to set your level. It easily spins to get the spirit level within clear view. Something I couldn’t find info about when I purchased this base is the lever that sticks out. This is to support the 3/8” mounting screw to tighten against the ball head or gimbal. Brilliant. I was worried it would stick out too far and snag but I hasn’t been a problem. The quality is top notch as all other Gitzo products. Mates nicely with the 75mm Systematic base. Highly recommended. Worth the extra bucks.

Works great for large format camera

This base with the 75 mm Gitzo bowl works well on the Gitzo Systematic tripods. The base and bowl can be removed (or installed) as a unit to swap out with a regular flat base. THis is one thing that attracted me to the Gitzo Systematic tripods.

Well made and sturdy

In the past I used less sturdy leveling bases on my sturdy tripod (GT3543LS) but the weakest link breaks the chain. This leveling base does the job and I can use it with heavier equipment. I very much recommend this leveling base if you are looking for top stability of your tripod system.

Works perfectly

It's very easy to install, easy to use, and does its job superbly. Makes my Gitzo GT3533S VERY easy to level. :-)

Sure saves a lot of time and frustration when trying to level my Gitzo Tripod. Instead of adjusting each leg individually, all I do now is loosen the Leveling Base, then center the round spirit level. It takes about fifteen seconds, and I'm done. Oh, and don't forget to order the bowl head adapter.

Well make excellent!

question

I have a Gitzo G1327 tripod would this fit? Would I need any other attachments other than my ball head?
Asked by: Steven K.
No it will not. Your G1327 has a center column. This base is for a Systematic tripod with a 75mm bowl mount.

question

Is this compatible with the gt455ts? And suitable for use with a Manfrotto 410 geared head?
Asked by: Tania Y.
Yes, the leveling base works perfectly with the GT4553S (and any other Systematic Tripod). But you need the Gitzo SYSTEMATIC 75mm Bowl Head Adapter for Series 2, 3, and 4 Tripods (B&H # GIGS3321V75)Its solid and easy to adjust.
