Gitzo GT3543XLS overview

  • 1Description

The GT3543XLS Systematic Series 3 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. The Series 3 tripods are optimal for traveling light but with extremely sturdy support, especially for those who prefer to work without a center column or need enhanced modularity.

Within the Series 3 line the GT3543XLS is given the "Extra Long" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 79.5", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 55 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT3543XLS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 5 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" 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 GT3543XLS reviews

    GT3543XLS Systematic Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Extra Long) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and very stable platform. This tripod was purchased along with its bigger brother the GT5543XLS. Build quality of the Systematic Series is pro level and the GT3543XLS does not disappoint. If you frequently shoot on uneven terrain as I do, you'll want this longer version. Currently, I have a RRS BH-55 ball head mounted on it...a very stable combination at all heights. I would have no problem mounting my Wimberley WH-200 gimbal head II on it with 400mm fast glass...and have. Again, very stable. At just over 5 lb. (minus head) carbon fiber is the way to go. This tripod will squat to just under 4 inches; perfect for eye level shots of shorter critters, etc. A quality set of tripod legs without a center column is more stable, and lighter. If you're reading this, look no further. These legs will get the job done with ease. Gitzo should include their GC4101 tripod bag as an option with their Systematic line of tripods. I ordered two of them separately...still waiting for them. Must be a popular item. If you're looking for a pro-quality tripod you can count on to protect your valuable gear, just buy it and don't look back. Mine will probably outlast me. BH is great to work with. I really appreciate their experienced and helpful folks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Arrived missing friction washer on one leg. Legs tend to slip even when firmly tightened. Tripod feet will not stay on; already lost one. What a piece of junk!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod!! I wanted a good tripod that would handle any situation that I would come across while shooting, I wanted a bowl and it was a breeze to set-up. The quality and stability are exceptional. I was hesitant about spending as much as I did for the tripod, but know that I have seen and used this quality product, I have no regrets on this purchase. I highly recommend the Gitzo tripod.
