The Gitzo Series 3 6X GT3542XLS Overhead Tripod is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features rigid support and flexible configuration in a over-head tripod. It’s ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses. It has a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations, in as little as 15 seconds, and the same tripod can support both photographic and video equipment. It weighs a relatively lightweight of 4.9 lbs and can be extended to 6.6’ high and handle a DSLR with up to a 400mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching—up to a 55 lb load capacity. It features an Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), G-Lock, and brushed matte black finish for improved locking performance and minimized reflectivity.
