The best 3 series Gitzo
“This tripod is only a little more heavy than the equivalent 3 section (the 3530LS) and only a tiny bit longer. The non ‘X’ model is also quite nice in that it folds to nearly the same small length as a 2 series Gitzo and is only sightly heavier. But, that one only goes to 58″. This 3541XLS is 59″ with just 3 sections extended! And, no center column attachment will be needed because it can go to 78″ with legs only. If you need something smaller for traveling, and hiking extensively, this would not be the model to consider. But for virtually everything else, this is the one!…” – By Mediahound
Impressive photographic equipment
“The Gitzo GT3541XLS is impressive equipment. I searched long and hard for the appropriate tripod, and the GT3541XLS was the best choice. Originally I wanted to purchase a tripod with three leg sections for greater stability. The problem is that I am 6′ tall, and most of the three leg section tripods could not raise the camera to my eye level. When the GT3541XLS arrived, I extended the legs to maximum length, and – to my surprise – I walked under the tripod with room to spare…” – By Michael

Gitzo GT3541XLS Features & Specifications
The Gitzo GT3541XLS Extra Long Systematic 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs uses advanced “Carbon 6X” carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter and as resistant as its 12 layer predecessor. Carbon “6X” is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.
The GT3541LS is designed for “over head level” shooting, offering extra flexibility in the studio or at weddings, concerts and sport events. It can reach a height of 6.6′ (198cm). It is ideal for use with professional equipment, medium format cameras, and SLRs with an up to 500mm maximum lens attached. It offers an excellent load capacity rating of 39.6 lb (18 kg) and good torsional rigidity.
Systematic tripods offer a unique ultra-wide top platform that guarantees an incredibly stable base for any professional high performance equipment. This platform can be removed and replaced with other accessories, making this a fully customizable system.
Systematic tripods are supplied with a flat top plate. The optional support attachments can be fitted by simply unlocking the bolt in the top casting, lifting out the flat plate and fastening in the alternative adapter or column.
Safe Lock Disc
The Safe Lock Disc top plate, composed of a techno-polymer compound, makes it possible to control the locking torque without prematurely stopping camera rotation and ensuring that users’ equipment is safely and effectively locked in place.
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.
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.
Removable Leg Tips
Removable self-locking rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.
