• Rigid and portable, 4-section carbon fibre monopod
• Extreme stability for professional DSLRs with long lenses
• Strong and secure with G-lock Ultra system
• Captures moving subjects with innovative pivoting foot
The Gitzo GM4542 Series 4 Monopod is a 4-section, lightweight carbon fibre monopod and the the best balanced solution in the range. This Series 4 support leverages larger tube size (top leg diameter 37.0mm) and stiff Carbon eXact tubes to deliver rock-solid stability for professional DSLRs, long lenses, and video cameras. Despite this, it is extremely lightweight and slim enough to grip comfortably. Gitzo’s G-Lock Ultra system makes the tubing even stronger by rigidly connecting the leg sections, protecting joints from moisture and dirt.
The GM4532 reaches up to 159 cm, securely supporting an impressive 30kg-worth of equipment. It weighs just 680grams, folds down to 58cm and is easy to pack in/on a backpack for hiking.
This model’s 4-section structure is designed to enhance its overall balance. It features a handy, reversible 1/4" and 3/8" mounting thread for attaching various types of cameras, lenses, and heads.
The GM4532 base features an innovative 50mm rubber foot with a pivoting ball-joint for smooth movement that is perfect for capturing moving subjects, providing solid footing and maximum stability on any surface.
It also features Gitzo's signature ergonomic textured hand grip and a removable wrist strap for increased security, allowing the monopod to hang from belts or pockets.

Gitzo’s latest technological breakthrough – the fluid cartridge and fluidity control system – makes this head the perfect blend of aesthetic appeal and performance. Fluid cartridge technology from the video world is being applied to a gimbal head for the very first time in this model. It absorbs vibrations and ensures smooth movement throughout observation and shooting, even with very large lenses.
The Fluid Gimbal Head cartridge also features an innovative fluidity control system – the Whip-Pan, which delivers superlative device control with high-speed movements. This device applies automatic friction, excluding fluid rotation on the head’s panoramic axis and maintaining smoothness at low rotation speeds, as typically required in video heads. Users have full movement control as they shoot, so there is no risk of shocks or vibrations. At high rotation speeds, when it’s time to quickly reposition the camera, the whip-pan instantly excludes fluidity, allowing free movement without lifting the tripod off the ground. Fluid rotation is automatically and instantly restored when the rotation speed decreases.
The GHFG1 Fluid Gimbal Head is especially designed for Gitzo’s Systematic tripods, celebrated for their incomparable stiffness as the most reliable supports for secure shooting in the harshest of conditions and the most solid base for the broad, gentle movements typical of birdwatching and wildlife photography.
Featuring soft-touch ergonomic knobs and built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base and new, Arca-type plate with rubber grips, this head is built to perform securely and provide the greatest handling ease, which is further enhanced by a detachable pan bar.
