The Gitzo GT5563GS Series 5 Systematic Giant is a commanding, 6-section, professional carbon fiber tripod designed to reach the greatest heights, securely supporting longer lenses and heavy cameras. Series 5 models are Gitzo’s most rigid tripod and like the rest of the Systematic family, they set the standard in terms of strength, stability and modularity. The GT5563GS’ top casting element opens and closes, allowing the tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding center column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling base or other Systematic accessories.


The GT5563GS weighs 3.56 Kg and secures an outstanding payload of 40 Kg, reaching all the way up to a height of 278 cm when extended. It can also go as low as 10 cm and folds down to 73 cm. A highly reliable, versatile and agile solution, this model features Gitzo's Carbon eXact tubes with G-Lock Ultra twist-locks that solidly connect the leg sections and protect them from dirt damage. New, ultra-stable, removable feet make this support even more secure. The Easy Link attachment provides enhanced versatility and ergonomics, enabling users to attach a wide array of optional accessories, such as a Manfrotto arms, LED lighting solutions, monitors, etc.


With a top leg diameter of 41.3mm and top casting that is larger than Series 3 and 4 Systematics, this tripod guarantees the ultimate sturdiness and stability.


The iconic GT5563GS is the preferred choice of the most demanding professionals looking for a secure solution to elevate their heavier equipment and longer lenses to incredible heights. It replaces the GT5562GTS
