The Gitzo GT5562GTS Giant is Gitzo's tallest tripod. Like all top-of-the-range Systematic tripods, it's modular, with a flat center disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, leveling bases and other components. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fiber with Gitzo's efficient G-locks.
The GT5562GTS is a Gitzo Series 5 tripod designed not only for height, but also for strength and torsional rigidity under extreme loads of up to 40kg (88lb) and with lenses up to 800mm.
With 6-section legs fully open, it reaches overhead level even without using a centre column, but it can also be splayed close to ground level thanks to its independent leg angle settings. For such a tall tripod, it is light in weight and compact when folded.
