The Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber 4-Section X-Long Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that features rigid support, yet adaptable and flexible configurations. The Series 3 X-Long tripods are ideal for supporting larger video or DSLR cameras, and lenses.
The Series 3 tripod 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. Despite a negligible weight of only 6.85 lb, this tripod can be extended to 78.9" 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.
Series 3 tripods have an Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), G-Lock, and brushed matte black finish for improved locking performance and minimized reflectivity. A wide selection of accessories allows you to keep growing your system according to your future needs, whether they are still life, macro, outdoor, sport or wildlife applications.
