Gitzo Systematic GT4543LS Overview

The GT4543LS Systematic Series 4 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 4 tripods provide a balance of size and sturdiness with a larger top casting than the Series 3.

Within the Series 4 line the GT4543LS is given the "Long" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.9", to a maximum height of 62.2", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 55 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT4543LS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 5.2 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 24.0" 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 Systematic GT4543LS Reviews

A long overdue purchase worth the wait

By Rachel

These legs are great, it's the right height that I need and they are fairly lightweight. I also got the geared column which does add some heft to it, but overall very happy!

Nice solid but light-weight tripod

Well made and easy to use -- especially with the add-on of a Gitzo rapid center column.

Rock solid for vibration-free astrophotography

I use this Gitzo Series 4 tripod for landscape, nightscape, and astrophotography. This is the most stable tripod I have ever used. The carbon fiber leg sections are THICK. I take it with me to the most remote, hot, sandy, dirty places in search of unique scenery and dark skies. It has held up remarkably well under such harsh conditions. I'm 6'1" and this tripod extends to a perfect height in which I don't have to contort my body to see through my viewfinder. The base clamps down tight and the included rubber feet provide excellent vibration dampening. The bubble level on the base is perfectly positioned and easy to read. ASTROPHOTOGRAPHERS: This tripod was a total game changer for my portable astrophotography rig. I travel long distances to seek out the most remote locations I can find to avoid astro image-ruining light pollution. This hobby requires the use of quite a few different components, and the combined weight of everything really adds up. My Gitzo Series 4 tripod easily supports the weight of my Nikon D810, MB-D12 battery grip, RRS L-plate, ball head, Star Adventurer 2i Pro tracker, ZWO guide camera and scope, ASIAir Pro, and ANY lens I choose to use. With this setup, I shoot 5, 10, even 15-20 minute night sky exposures at a lower ISO (less noise) yielding images with pinpoint sharp stars (no trails) and mindblowing color detail. I can confidently adjust my camera position without severely throwing off my polar alignment and having to start the process over. I have not been compensated in any way for writing this review, I just felt compelled to share my experience with this wonderful product. I strongly recommend this tripod.

I had my choices down to two Gitzo tripods. I am not a tall woman, but I do shoot over my head enough that I did not want to bend down to get them. I also shoot on uneven ground now and then. Wanted this to be a one time purchase for me and have all bases covered. I have not even opened the lowest legs yet. The two thickest are about perfect for me on my deck. I LOVE the stability. I go in and out all day and just leave my camera and lens out there without a worry of it falling over. I know this will handle any long lens i may have in my future. It is so light weight too. I have not packed it yet, but I will at some point.

Gitzo makes great tripods. This is a beauty. I added the center post and replaced the Gitzo plates (which I don't like) with RRS plate (Arca-Swiss: It's the oooooonly way to fly! , as Western Airlines used to say).

Handles my D850 with 300mm f2.8!

I upgraded from my old Gitzo Mountaineer to this slightly taller and MUCH more rigid model and won't look back! Using RRS BH-55 on top with my Nikon D850, which is both heavy and vibrates quite a bit. I tested with a 300mm and get very good performance with the VR in Active mode without mirror locked up. The feet are great, but I think only suitable for hard surfaces, so I use the spike feet outdoors.

Will a Gitzo G1318 center column fit on the GT4543LS tripod?
Asked by: Gerald
No, the (now discontinued) Gitzo G1318 Carbon Fiber Column would not be compatible for use with the Gitzo GT4543LS Systematic Series 4 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long). However, the Gitzo GS3513S Rapid Center Column for Series 2, 3, and 4 Systematic Tripods, B&H # GIGS3513S, or the Gitzo GS3313GS Geared Center Column for Series 3 and 4 Systematic Tripods, B&H # GIGS3313GS, would be the options we carry that are compatible for use with the Gitzo GT4543LS Systematic Series 4 Carbon Fiber Tripod.
