Versatility

Systematic tripods are supplied with a flat top plate. The optional support attachments can be fitted by simply unlocking the bolt in the top casting, lifting out the flat plate and fastening in the alternative adapter or column.

Safe Lock Disc

The Safe Lock Disc top plate, composed of a techno-polymer compound, makes it possible to control the locking torque without prematurely stopping camera rotation and ensuring that users' equipment is safely and effectively locked in place.

Anti-Rotation Leg (ALR) System

The Anti-Rotation Leg (ALR) system makes it quick and easy to open and close the tripod. Simply turn all of the locking rings at once and the whole leg can be pulled out in seconds.

G-Lock Design

The G-Lock mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.

1mm Gitzo 6X Carbon Fiber Tube

Gitzo was able to develop a six-crossed multilayer carbon fiber 30% lighter than the previous 1.5mm generation that features the same exceptional performance of stability and vibration absorption and unbeatable quality.

Performance Design

Performance design allows the legs to be set individually at 24°, 55° and 90° to cover every angle you want to shoot.

Removable Leg Tips

Removable self-locking rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.

great support for camera and lens

Amazing Tripod, can't stop buying...

Having used only a handful of tripods, it isn't quite fair to say this is the best tripod ever made. What I can say is that it meets and exceeds my needs as an amateur wildlife photographer. Whether photographing birds in the backyard, or out in the subzero cold in Yellowstone the Gitzo GT3541 series has proven resilience, stability, and ease of use across the board. I highly recommend this tripod, and consider it a welcome premium item in my kit bag as it is one of the biggest contributors to great images. The LS model is great for me at 6' 1 when combined with a gimbal head like the Jobu Junior or Wimberly, and is an easy fit into a standard suitcase. A bit difficult to fit on a carry-on, although it does fit in mine on a diagonal with no head on.

I spent 2 months studying forums, reviews and specs for different tripods and this one is the winner for Canon 5D Mark II. and also Hasselblad 503CW it is perfect match and combine portability and also great steadiness. I bought it just few days before it got discontinued and I think new version 3542LS is coming and possibly fix problem with possible loose screw and risk of gear falling down. I purchased Naturescapes security plate 35 to fix this issue right here at B&H. The slight disadvantage is very wide mounting platform in case you would want to travel with small luggage or backpack for this purpose I keep my older Gitzo 1228 Mark II. but thinking to upgrade it with 2541 which is its Gitzo replacement with lighter weight and better leg locking mechanism.

What can I sat, it's a Gitzo.

I don't know how much I can add to the volumes already written about this and similar Gitzo tripods. It's is light weight, strong and perfectly stable. The only question you need to answer in buying a tripos is: which gitzo is the right one?

Be careful....

I love this tripod, it is very stable and easy to use. What I don't love is, the first time I took it into the field, I lost one of the rubber feet. This thing was expensive. I'd expect more out of Gitzo, things shouldn't be falling off right out of the box. Yes, this is a small thing. But the tripod is new, not even broken in yet, and I already have to spend MORE money, just to have a complete unit again. Make sure the rubber feet are screwed in tightly, every time you take it out.

Love...

Its pricey, but you really get what you pay for. So light and easy to use. Super sturdy. I don't like center posts, which is why I chose this model. However, I love the fact that I can add one later if I decide.

Good Value for the price

Serious photographer. Love everything about it especially the lack of a center post, ability to get down to ground level for belly shooting, stability and weight. Because it is so tall I can shoot at eye level without bending over. I bought two, one for myself and another for a friend.

Sturdy and Light

Amazingly light for the amount of weight it can hold. I'm 5'9 and if the tripod is extended all the way, it's a little too tall (including ball head and camera). It's great that it folds down so small and makes it easy to carry if you are traveling. Absolutely recommend it.
