Series 4 (top leg ø: 37.0mm)
The Series 4 Systematics are becoming popular thanks to the rigidity from large leg diameters, while the top casting (shared with Series 3 models) is less bulky compared to Series 5 models and therefore easier to store and carry. The GT4553S has a short folded length with its 5-section construction.
The Systematic Series
Systematic is Gitzo’s top of the range tripod family, the choice of exacting professional photographers who use long lenses and heavy cameras.
Not only are Systematic Gitzo’s strongest and most stable tripods, they’re also modular, with a top casting element that opens and closes to allow each tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding center column, video half-ball adaptor, leveling base or other Systematic accessories.
The latest range features Carbon eXact tubes, new ultra-stable feet, and the Easy Link attachment, making the Systematic even more stable, versatile, and ergonomic.
Benefits and Features
Ultimate stability - new tubes and feet
The leg tubes and feet have been updated with latest innovations to make the ultra-stable Systematic Tripod even more stable.
Carbon eXact tubes optimise fibre composition for each tube size, to make the narrower tubes stiffer, and the wider tubes lighter compared to the predecessors’ Carbon 6X tubes. New big feet, with 50mm diameter with an integrated ball, realize ultimate stability by preventing slipping and movement. Standard feet (33mm) are included as well.
Improved ergonomics – new leg locks and leg angle selectors
G-lock Ultra has even more comfortable operation and reduced risk of dust entering the locking mechanism. Leg angle selectors offer more grip room, and feature a built-in spring to help speed up switches between the 3 leg angles.
More versatile - Easy Link attachment
An Easy Link attachment (3/8” thread) is added, allowing the user to attach various accessories, expanding the functionalities of the tripod for advanced shooting techniques. For example, a Manfrotto arm can be attached to use lighting accessories or the Manfrotto Digital Director.
