Gitzo Systematic Series 5 Overview

The GT5533S 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 GT5533S is given the "Standard" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 52.8", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 88 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT5533S sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 6.2 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 24.4" 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.

question

I have a Novoflex MagicBall Ballhead, will this tripod fit with it? Or do I need to buy any accessories for it?
Asked by: Andrea M.
Yes. That ball head would be fine. The other two reviews are a bit misguided in my opinion, as there is no such thing as excess stability, or “overpowering” of a ball head. Yes, aesthetically, the ball head may look a bit odd when compared to the base. Yes, the tripod is bulky, and a bit heavy. It is a rock though.

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.
