The GT4552GTS Giant is the second-tallest tripod in the Systematic range. Like all top-of-the-range Systematic tripods, it's modular, with a flat centre disk that can be interchanged for centre columns, levelling bases and other components. Because they have leg angle settings but no column as standard, Systematic tripods are all capable of near-groud level shooting. Leg tubes are in 6X carbon fibre with Gitzo's efficient G-locks. The GT4552GTS is a Gitzo Series 4 tripod designed for strength and torsional rigidity under loads of up to 25kg (55lb) and with lenses up to 600mm. It reaches overhead-height with its 5-section legs fully extended, but it remains relatively compact when folded.
