The Gitzo Series 3 6X Systematic 4-Section Tripod (X-Long) features a unique modular system with a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases, and other components. It weighs just 4.9lb. but supports up to a 55lb. load capacity, making it perfect for both photo and video. It extends to 6.6' high and can support a DSLR with a lens up to 400mm. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fiber with Gitzo's efficient G-locks.
G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking 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.
We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.
Built-in Accessory Hook
This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
