The Gitzo GT5533LS Series 5 Systematic Long is a powerful, 3-section, professional carbon fiber tripod that securely support long lenses and heavy cameras. Series 5 models are Gitzo’s most rigid tripod and like the rest of the Systematic family, they set the standard in terms of strength, stability and modularity. The GT5533LS top casting element opens and closes, allowing each tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding centre column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling base or other Systematic accessories.
The GT5533LS weighs 2.72 Kg and secures an outstanding payload of 40 Kg. It reaches as low as 10 cm and up to 145 cm and folds down to 68 cm. A highly reliable, versatile, portable solution, this model features Gitzo's Carbon eXact tubes with G-Lock Ultra twist-locks that solidly connect the leg sections and protect them from dirt damage. New, ultra-stable, removable feet make this support even more secure. The Easy Link attachment provides enhanced versatility and ergonomics, enabling users to attach a wide array of optional accessories, such as a Manfrotto arms, LED lighting solutions, monitors, etc.
With a top leg diameter of 41.3 mm, the mighty, 3-section GT5533LS has larger top casting than Series 3 & 4 Systematic models to ensure maximum stability. This model replaces the GT5532LS and is the tripod of choice for the world’s most demanding professional photographers using heavy professional equipment and long lenses.
