    Amazing quality and light weight.

    I resisted spending the money for a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod for years. I'm now sorry I waited so long. Sure the cost is steep, and when you add $400 on top for a ball head of equal quality you end up well north of $1000 for the combo. Having used this now in combination with an Acratech GP ballhead I can assure you it is well worth its cost. The leg clamps open and close with no more than a quarter turn from open to fully locked. The finish on the carbon fiber legs is impeccable and the magnesium parts are of equal quality. There is no wobble or play in any part. Even the smallest bottom tubes are remarkably free of any flexing. The Ground Level Set feature on this tripod is pure genius! This allows you to easily remove the center column in under 30 seconds without any tools for very low to the ground shots. Reattaching the column is just as quick and easy. Rubber O rings inside all the leg clamps keep out dust and grit. I know purists don't like center column tripods for... 5/5 D. Rader (Kansas City, MO USA) - See all my reviews, January 12, 2015

    Lightweight tripod that you will want to bring with you

    This is a lightweight tripod that I do not hesitate to bring with me. I have this paired with the Acratech GP-S ballhead for a total weight of about four pounds. I will be taking this with me to Maui and carrying it on the back of my Lowepro Flipside 400 backpack. Due to it's low weight, the tripod is easy to maneuver. This makes extending and retracting the legs easy. One note of caution: Make sure to only slightly turn each of the individual rings that are used to unlock and lock a particular section of a leg. Loosening to much will result in a plastic piece falling out that is located inside the leg. It is not easy to insert this piece once it has fallen out.This is not an inexpensive tripod but this is tripod that you will actually use and take with you on your trips due to it's low weight. I have read stories of individuals who keep buying tripods because the tripod that was purchased was too heavy, not robust, etc. I previously had one of those tripods many... 5/5 Gerald (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    feature rich tripod!

    5/5 Krk161321 (IL, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) It is made out of aluminum. Light enough to carry around the whole day yet still very sturdy. The aluminum ball head actually performs well. Once you've got the desired angle and lock it in place, the camera will stay on that angle until you release the lock unlike my 20 usd tripod. Im using a d80 with 18-270mm lens attached. That's about 1.2kg weight. The tripod is rated by the manufacturer to handle up to 13 lbs of equipment. Other features are a quick release plate, 2 bubble levels ( one on the head and the other on the legs), user replaceable aluminum tripod head, a threaded weight hook and spiked feet. The tripod can also converted so you can take macro shots. The legs can be locked in position independent of one another. With all these features plus great performance, this tripod is a steal!One minor hiccup, the plastic on the leg clamps, while not cheap, isnt top of the line. But they get the job done so it a no issue for me Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 26, 2009

    Great Tripod for the Price

    If you're a professional photographer, go look at Manfrotto or some of the other high end brands. If you're an amateur photographer looking for a good tripod that won't cut into your lens budget, then look no further.The ball head is nice, but is sometimes a bit unwieldy, and difficult to set. Sometimes you have to crank down the tightening nut a lot to get it to stay. The snaps that extend the legs are plastic feel cheap, but what can you expect from such an inexpensive tripod?On the good side, you are getting a ball head tripod, with legs that can be extended past their typical angle. They also have nice padding on them which is great in the Northern climates when you have to work without gloves. The tips of the legs can be rotated to reveal spikes for difficult terrain, and there's two bubble levels: one on the legs of the tripod, and one on the actual ball head. There's also a compass, if you need that utility. Even with all that, you still get a pretty... 4/5 R. Kanzig - See all my reviews, April 12, 2009

    Excellent Tripod for the Money!

    PROSLooks very nice (not cheap).The ball head allows the camera to be tilted into many positions and angles. And it stays in place once it's secured (my camera weighs 10 oz.). And the head is made of metal (I saw some more expensive tripods at Best Buy with heads made of plastic) and can be removed.The tripod can be tilted to a full 90 degrees for portrait shots.It feels sturdy and stable, yet it's light enough to carry around.The legs extend by flipping a tab, instead of having to unscrew something. This makes extending and retracting the legs quick and easy.The legs adjust to three different angles (with the last angle, the legs are almost perpendicular to the center pole) and each leg can be adjusted individually to a different angle.The legs have retractable spiked feet for greater stability on softer ground.There's a hook at the end of the center pole for hanging a weight if more... 5/5 Karen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The Best Carbon Fibre Tripod you can buy!

    5/5 Colorado Kid - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo Series 3 Systematic 4 Section X Long Tripod GT3542XLS (Electronics) I bought this tripod to compare with a Really Right Stuff TVC-24L which I purchased at the same time.It is 1.1lb heavier.It is 1ft taller.It is more stable.It is as well made.It is easier to set up and take down.It comes with more practical feet that have spikes built in. Spikes will cost you $100 extra from RRS.The head can be removed more easily and is a better design on the Gitzo.The RRS TVC-24L cost $285 more if you include the spikes.The rubber feet on the RRS are to big to use on any soft base and bounce more.

    You will NEVER be limited by this tripod

    I have more tripods than any sane person would have. They each have their place with regards to size/weight vs height/stability. None of them were truly stable past 51". I had my eye on this model for quite some time and finally picked one up. It's rated for 65lbs. I fully extended the legs and, yes, I hung myself from it, holding on to the platform like an idiot. It didn't budge and I weigh around 170lbs. When just extending 2 of the leg sections, the platform is at 59". Add the height my Markins ball head, and the viewfinder of my camera is at eye level. I'm around 6'-1". With legs fully extended, the platform is at 77". This is tall enough to shoot above any heads that are between you and your subject. It is also tall enough to shoot things VERY high up without bending over. It is also high enough that setting up on very uneven ground (stairs, rocks, hillsides, etc) is no problem. This tripod weighs 4.9lbs. My next tallest Gitzo Explorer (that only goes to 51") weighs 4.1lbs.

    Why did I wait!! Beautiful legs!!

    These are the legs I should have got in the first place.I was torn trying to decide what to get. I wanted legs with strength and height. I did not want to spend too much but should have just gone straight to these in the first place.Impressive height and rigidity. I am 6'3 or so and typically do not need the lowest section extended - but am glad to have the option for uneven ground or added height.Workmanship is truly impressive. Flawless.I was torn between these and the RRS TVC-34L. While the RRS legs have some sexy carbon work they are shorter, heavier, notably more expensive, less warranty, only equipped with rubber feet (Metal spikes are a 10% option), and lighter weight rating (though ratings are different by manufacturer anyway).Dont get me wrong - I am still drawn to the RRS legs - that carbon weave gets me every time (and I would gladly support an American company if it were a closer match up).

    compared to other Gitzo

    4/5 Bob D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Tripod Ser.3 4S Long (Black) (Electronics) Compared to Ser 2 GT2542LS, which I like better. Pros: heavier tubing. Easy adjust hight with center column (important feature for 4X5 field camera). Seems as solid as Ser 2. Open (non extended) about eye level for me (6'2"),(so is Ser 2, LS). Con: Heavier than Ser 2 and collapsed length no shorter than Ser 2. Feet on this are slick and slide on hardwood/tile floors, making this less stable overall. Also, Ser 2 feet have built in spikes, while with this one, the are tool applied option. Mounitng plate smaller: The RRR BH-55 head "hangs over". Large plate on Ser 2 a stability plus, I think.

    After 2 Weeks with This Tripod

    4/5 koljaho1 - See all my reviews This review is from: Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Tripod Ser.3 4S Long (Black) (Electronics) Overall:At 1.95kg, this tripod is extremely light given its strength and rigidity. This tripod is definitely not suitable for travelling unless you are fine with checking in the tripod or lug a 2kg tripod around.Pros:- Strong and rigid - good strength to weight ratio- Easy to dismantling of the legs for cleaning- Good tripod base design - provide locking screw to secure your tripod head- Auto retracting leg angle tabs.Cons:- The rubber feet are extremely slick and slippery on normal tile/parquet flooring - will prefer more versatile feet given the price tag tied to it. Tripod also doesn't come with tripod bag or sleeves and have to purchase them separately - a huge disappointment.- Tab to adjust angle of tripod legs looks rather filmsy and may break easily (saw it online recently), September 25, 2015
