Gitzo GM3340L User Reviews
Solid monopod for heavy gear
“This is a great monopod for the price. I purchased this because I needed something reliable to support my 400 2.8 lens. All the guys at Sports Illustrated use Gitzo and recommended the brand. Having the option to switch between small and big threads is a plus. The locking mechanism is very secure and does not have room to give.” – By StCharles43
Great Affordable Monopod
“This monopod is great. As a professional sports photographer I use it to hold my 400 2.8 and it is able to fully support the load. The twist locks go in to place quickly and easily and the movement is extremely smooth. Additionally, as the thread is actual size rather than the variable size used in Manfrotto branded products the lens is safely attached to the mount. This is a great option for those who don’t want or need carbon fiber and is something I highly recommend. For a sports photographer the fact that it has four sections is great since I can use it standing (I’m 6’4) or sitting with only part of the first section extended. A great monopod and a highly recommended purchase for all.” – By Andrew F

Gitzo GM3340L Features & Specifications
The Gitzo GM3340L Monopod is a classic aluminum Series 3 offering, made for use with larger gear such as a 300mm f/2.8 lens with SLR, flash bracket, etc. Fit and finish are exemplary, and you should expect nothing less from the industry’s finest brand.
At its 5’1″ maximum height, the GM3340L will put an SLR’s viewfinder just at the eye level for the average user; if you’re particularly tall or need to shoot above crowds, consider instead the GM3350XL model.
Gitzo’s made changes to their aluminum, and it is now 30% lighter than previous Gitzo models of the same size. The 1.2mm thick tubing is finished in a brushed matte black, and it now sports Gitzo’s “ALR” anti-rotation design for their locks so that you can deploy and retract the monopod quicker than ever.
Gitzo’s GM3340L has a built-in combination wrist strap and belt clip, which allows you to hang your ‘pod on your belt or pocket when you need both your hands.
