Systematic is the choice of exacting professional photographers who use long lenses and heavy cameras.

Not only are Systematic Gitzo’s strongest and most stable tripods, they’re also modular, with a top casting element that opens and closes to allow each tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding center column, video half-ball adaptor, leveling base or other Systematic accessories. The latest range features Carbon eXact tubes, new ultra-stable feet and the Easy Link attachment, making the Systematic even more stable, versatile, and ergonomic. The Easy Link attachment (3/8'' thread) allows the user to attach various accessories such as a Manfrotto arm to use lighting accessories. 

Series 4 (top leg diameter 37.0mm) is becoming popular thanks to the rigidity from large leg diameters, while the top casting (shared with Series 3 models) is less less bulky and therefore easier to store and carry.

GT4553S has a short folded length with its 5-section construction. It replaces the GT4552TS.
