Gitzo — Awesome as Always
“This tripid is awesome! It is my third Gitzo. I purchased it not because there was anything wrong with the other two, but it has different features that I was looking for. It is very light but incredibly sturdy. It holds my gear without any problems, regardless the size of my body and lens. One of its best features is that the center pole can be removed completely, and with the legs out completely, the camera is just inches off the ground.” – By Foto Gal
Much better than I expected
“No doubt about it a three section tripod has more stable legs than a four section tripod. The last leg is relatively small compared to the other sections. This difference is, obviously, even more pronounced with a four section tripod. The factor that changed my mind was practical over theoretical. A slightly less stable tripod taken along is better than a more stable tripod left at home. The three section tripod with a head on it is too long to fit in a suitcase without dis-assembly and is cumbersome to carry strapped to a backpack. Therefore, I went with the four section tripod that collapses to a nice portable size suitable for airline travel and backpacking.” – By A Prime Customer

Gitzo GT3541 Features & Specifications
The Gitzo GT3541 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs uses advanced “Carbon 6X” carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger than its 12 layer predecessor. Although the tubing is lighter, it still offers the same resistance to vibration. Carbon “6X” is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.
The GT3541 is ideal for use with professional equipment, medium format cameras, and SLRs with a 300mm lens, up to 400mm maximum. It offers an excellent load capacity rating of 39.6 lbs (18kg) and good torsional rigidity.
Improved Leg Spread
This tripod has been improved with a third ultra-low leg spread to take full advantage of the Ground Level Set.
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.
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.
Redesigned Upper Discs & Bolts
This tripod features completely redesigned upper discs and bolts. The discs, which are composed of aluminum, feature a safe lock material that reduces vibrations and improves head locking. The improved high-grade stainless steel bolt design prevents it from dropping inside the column when adjusted, and makes controlling the tread length stress-free. The redesigned bolts are also corrosion and oxidation resistant.
This feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. The upper disk is removed from the center column and inserted directly into the upper casting using the column hook. No tools required.
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 allows the legs to be set individually at 24°, 55° and 90° to cover every angle you want to shoot.
Redesigned built-in, spring-loaded retractable hook on the bottom of the center column provides a place to hang a stabilizing counterweight such as camera, sand or water bags.
Removable Leg Tips
Removable rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.
Grooved Rapid center column, with locking collar, for improved stability.
