Gitzo GT5543LS overview

  • 1Description

The GT5543LS 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 GT5543LS is given the "Long" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 61.4", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 88 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT5543LS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 6 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 23.6" 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 GT5543LS reviews

    GT5543LS Systematic Series 5 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tripod Design New design of Gitzo Triopds are really well engineered. This tripod is very well built and sturdy compared to my RRS 3 series. Now they have built in tooless feature to secure base plate along with safety latch to prevent base plate from falling out should it ever loosen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank My previous tripod was the Promaster 528 carbon fiber, which eventually fell apart after several years. This tripod is substantially bigger and beefier. Of course, it's slightly heavier as well, but the weight is not noticeable with what I am used to carrying. I like that I can carry it around with my camera attached with 100% confidence that my camera won't fall or move. Very satisfied so far. I hope it does a good job holding up over the years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gitzo Magic!! This is my first Gitzo tripod and I'm so excited. This is a fantastic tripod I purchased for use with my gimbal head and 500mm lens for shooting wildlife! It is ultra sturdy and lightweight. It's a big tripod, so I won't be hiking with it, but I wouldn't mind walking around with my camera and lens onboard. Now it's time for a hiking tripod!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for long telephoto lens I bought the Gitzo Series 5 tripod because of the load capacity and stability. It is dedicated for use with a long and heavy telephoto lens in conjunction with my gimbal head. The stability of the tripod is just superb. There is no shake with shooting at a high frame rate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpness demands this tripod. I focus stack the orchids I grow with Leica medium format that are made up of many images. The lenses require absolute stability. This tripod which has no center column is chosen for me, 6'6". The legs do not bend and the feet do not shift. This tripod is a rock!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The very best Not much else to say really! This tripod is rock solid and a pleasure to use. Proper stability for my 600mm F4 ED FL on my RRS BH-55 for bird photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid I decided to invest in a good tripod that will last me for years and this is it! Very light and easy to carry. I'm very happy with this purchase!
