Gitzo GT5562GTS Series 5 6X Systematic 6 Section Giant

The GT5562GTS Giant is Gitzo's tallest tripod. Like all top-of-the-range Systematic tripods, it's modular, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, levelling bases and other components. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fibre with Gitzo's efficient G-locks.
£999.00
  • The GT5562GTS is a Gitzo Series 5 tripod designed not only for height, but also for strength and torsional rigidity under extreme loads of up to 40kg (88lb) and with lenses up to 800mm. With 6-section legs fully open, it reaches overhead level even without using a centre column, but it can also be splayed close to ground level thanks to its independent leg angle settings. For such a tall tripod, it is light in weight and compact when folded.

     

    ALR

    We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.

     

    G-Lock

    G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking 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.

     

    Hook

    This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.

     

    Leg Ends

    All tripods and monopods in Series 1 and above are provided with removable rubber feet. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes. (4 sections tripods in Series 1 are excluded because the final leg section is too narrow to fit these ends).
