Gitzo GT5563GS overview

  • 1Description

The GT5563GS Systematic Series 5 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo is a high capacity carbon fiber tripod that represents the ultimate goals of the Systematic lineup—minimal weight, durability, and uncompromising stability. For those looking for the most stable support system possible, the Series 5 is designed to hold up to some of the most demanding setups with a large top casting and excellent stability. This "Giant" model takes things up a notch with an incredible maximum height provided by a 6-section design.

Within the Series 5 line the GT5563GS is given the "Giant" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 109.4", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 88 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT5563GS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 7.8 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 28.7" makes storing or travelling with the tripod easy and convenient.

The Systematic line also features an array of unique, patented, and useful features which set a standard for professional quality. The key design element of the series is the use of Gitzo's Carbon eXact tubes which are extremely rigid despite their lightweight design. The carbon tubing is complimented by Gitzo's G-Lock Ultra twist-locks which maintain stable, solid connections between leg sections and prevent joint damage by blocking out dirt, dust, and moisture. Each leg on the tripod features a 50mm rubber articulating foot, providing a stable and versatile base for setting the tripod on most surfaces. If required, the feet may be removed and replaced with optional metal spikes for increased stability in sand, dirt, mud, snow, and ice. The base of the tripod also features a 3/8"-16 Easy Link attachment thread, allowing the user to connect a variety of accessories to the tripod including magic arms, shoe adapters, LED lights, monitors, and more.

    Gitzo GT5563GS reviews

    GT5563GS Systematic Series 5 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Giant) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer This tripod is a beast! I've never used a tripod that requires a ladder, and I was concerned about stability. The ladder still has me worried, but there are no issues with the tripod. It's very well built and rock steady, even when I increase its ridiculous height with the optional center column (note: I have not yet used this in windy conditions, where it will probably be a challenge to stretch it to full height without introducing some motion). I'm shooting tethered with a tablet app that allows me to adjust all camera settings, including focus, remotely from ground level -- and that makes all the difference. I have a long list of photos I look forward to shooting now that I have this -- it's really going to open some doors.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from difficult legs to extend. It seems the wider the diameter of legs by Gitzo, the more difficult they are to extend/retract. I love my Explorer GT2641 and Traveller GT1545 but extending the widest two segments of this tripod are a real pain as the seem to get stuck. Even the wider locks are tough to rotate and securely lock. I'll see if I have better luck with an upcoming mountaineer order or maybe it's time to check out other brands that seem to be taking over the tripod market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing heigh & quality at a cost The thing is -- I reasoned with myself about the cost of this, and in the end, I said f* it, I'm gonna make this investment and never have to invest in a tripod again for a veery long time, if ever. Gitzo is even beyond the classic 535 sticks I used to own. This crazy things skies out at 9' and those lunar lander feet still feel like nothing can shake it at all. A monster in every way, including cost. Worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger is better I use this tripod with the 405 geared head for shooting interiors. The most stable tripod I have owned that didn't weigh a ton! I have not tried to raise it as high as it can go but even for everyday uses it beats my Manfrotto carbon fiber sticks for stability.
