Gitzo Systematic Series 5 Overview

The GT5543XLS 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.

Within the Series 5 line the GT5543XLS is given the "Extra Long" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 78", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 88 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT5543XLS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 6.9 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 28.3" 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.

Does anyone use this with a Gitzo GH3382QD Series 3 Ball Head? I'd love to see a photo!
Asked by: michael
The top plate of the Systematic is 88mm and the base of the ball head is 60mm, so there will be about 1" of space all around. A bigger ball head would fit better.

question

Hello. Give advice. With a height of 183cm, which tripod is better? Gitzo GT5543LS or Gitzo GT5543XLS? Thank you.
Asked by: Andriy T.
I can tell you only about the xls it is very sturdy and will allow you view or photograph over very tall objects. I have no regrets with this tripod. Fully extended I have to tiptoe in my yard furniture chair to see through my DSLRs view finder. I am six feet one.
