GT3542L is a long 4-section, Series 3 tripod designed to reach eye-level when fully extended. The G3542L is recommended for professional cameras with 300mm lenses (up to a maximum of 400mm). Thanks both to their new design and to the use of Carbon eXact tubes, Series 3 Mountaineer tripods are lighter in weight yet more rigid than their predecessors. 

Usage:

Scaled for professional equipment, medium format and DSLRs with 300mm lens up to 400mm maximum. High maximum load capacity and outstanding torsional rigidity, Series 3 tripods are available in 3- and 4-section models at standard, eye level and overhead heights. Series 3 Carbon 6X tripods are surprisingly lightweight and offer a good safety margin that makes them popular alternatives to series 2 tripods.

Features:

G-Lock is our leg locking system that increases system rigidity by 20% and allows quicker and stronger leg locking. We’ve added a solid machined aluminium upper disc with a new Safe Lock material that cuts vibration and improves grip between tripod and head. The upper disc can also be fitted directly to the upper casting, removing the center column for ground level photography or to save weight. All new Mountaineer tripods come with a convenient anti-dust bag for storage and packing.

 

Features

ALR Anti-Leg-Rotation: Gitzo have introduced a new Anti-Leg-Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the twists individually.
 
G-LOCK Ultra - G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock’s special design also provides a “gravity lock” effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
 
GROUND LEVEL SET - This new feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4 - 3/8 bolt and the column hook assembly: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.
 
LEG ENDS - All tripods and monopods in Series 1 and above are provided with removable rubber feet. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes. (4 sections tripods in Series 1 are excluded because the final leg section is too narrow to fit these ends).
 
HOOK - This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizingweight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) fromthe bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with longheavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
 
RAPID COLUMN - The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved center column for improved stability.
 
REVERSIBLE COLUMN - The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
