Gitzo GT3543LS overview

  • 1Description

The GT3543LS 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 GT3543LS is given the "Long" designation as it can extend from a minimum height of 3.5", to a maximum height of 57.5", all while maintaining an impressive weight capacity of 55 lb. Incorporating Gitzo's patented carbon eXact tubing, the GT3543LS sports maximum rigidity while keeping its weight to an absolute minimum. Weighing just 4.5 lb allows the tripod it be easily carried or transported in the studio or out in the field. It's folded length of just 22.4" 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.

    Gitzo GT3543LS reviews

    GT3543LS Systematic Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long? As an amateur who loves wildlife and birds, I have spent hundreds of dollars on five tripods over the past 20 years. I finally decided to kick in the big bucks and get the Wimberley and Gitzo tripod. �On the first time out with a 300mm f/2.8 lens and Nikon 850 body, I was able to easily balance the combo and quickly and comfortably track hummingbirds! �For me, this was far easier to use than any of the previously tried tripods with conventional or ball heads, and I was able to get a far larger percentage of frames with focused birds. �Sorry I didn't get the combo years ago!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This tripod is fantastic. I use it with a Canon 600mm f/4 and it handles it very well. I carry the lens on the tripod over my shoulder and feel totally secure. I use it with a Whimberley gimbal head. Really easy to extend and tighten the legs, and vise versa. Surprisingly light, even with with the large gimbal head attached.� I'm 5'11, I don't use a center extension with this tripod and with the 600mm on the gimbal, all the way down, it sits just below my eye level.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tripod This is my first systematic Gitzo and so far I love it. It's sturdy, lightweight for the capacity and has the quality build you would expect from Gitzo. I like not having to invert a center column to get low shots and it is still plenty tall enough for me (6' talk) to shoot at eye level. I added the RRS leveling base because it is less expensive and does not protrude from the bottom like the Gitzo leveling base does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again This is a great tripod! it is super stable and damps vibration instantly. It is a little on the heavy side but that is expected and needed for great photos! The leg locks work great and easy to adjust. The legs can be spread out so I can get down low for close-up photos of nature. Overall a great tripod!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gitzo Systematic This has been a great tripod, yes it is on the heavy side but knowing this prior to the purchase was not a surprise. For the me, the other benefits were worth it over the total weight of the tripod. The ground level option is great, the option to buy a rapid center column was fine and I was able to put the head on that I wanted, not just accept what came with it. Its very sturdy, supports my camera and lens with no issues

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought this for my new Nikon 400mm 2.8 lens and man I can't be more satisfied. Extremely lightweight and easy to handle. Quick to set up and I especially love the fact that it goes from 68 inches down to 3 inches so you can stand sit or lie down on your belly and shoot if that's what the situation demands. I am a hobbyist but appreciate quality products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid Okay, it cost a lot, so it should be "rock solid". I have learned in life that when you buy cheap, cheap is what you get, in most cases. I have had an aluminum tripod by Manafrotto for years, (which wasn't all that cheap, but in comparison to the Gitzo GT3543LS, it was), and it served it's purpose for landscape and macro. But I have started getting into heavy long lenses shooting birds and other wildlife, and I kept beating myself up for not getting that sharp image I wanted. So far, (I have only had it a week) I have only used it indoors, shooting through the window (which I do a lot), of finches, bluebirds, etc., with a prime Canon 300mm L f2.8 lens on a Canon 7D Mark II, and it seems to hold the load steady, and I can see an improvement on the sharpness of the images. It seems to be made very well, and I don't foresee me every needing another tripod. I just wish I had made the leap sooner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Does everything I ask of it. Tripods last a long time and it is important to buy the right one and not skimp. This replaces a tripod I have used for nearly 50 years!
