Replacing the GM3350 monopod, the Gitzo GM3551 supports cameras up to 39.7 pounds and has a maximum height of 75.6 inches. Gitzo monopods continue to set the standard for professionals and advanced amateurs. The range has been completely revised with new features and materials in order to offer lighter, faster and more stable products. Carbon 6X crossed layer tubing makes the GM3551 surprisingly light and even more convenient for transportation. Gitzo's Anti Leg Rotation system is also now available on the GM3551. Thanks to ALR, this monopod is incredibly fast to operate and the height can be easily and precisely adjusted. The Gitzo GM3551 monopod also features the innovative and exclusive G-Lock system that allows faster and stronger locking and increases rigidity by 20%. It comes with a convenient anti dust bag for storage and packing.
