Gitzo GM4542 Series 4 Carbon Fiber Monopod

Gitzo GM4542 Series 4 Carbon Fiber Monopod

The GM4542 Series 4 Monopod from Gitzo is a 4-section, lightweight carbon fiber support designed to occupy the "balanced" position in Gitzo's monopod lineup. Utilizing Gitzo's patented G-Lock Ultras, the GM4542 has the ability to support up to an impressive 66 lb while weighing just 1.5 lb.

The monopod reaches a maximum height of 62.6", enough to meet the height requirements of most shooters, and features a reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 mounting thread for adding an optional head if extra height or articulation is needed. As the "balanced" monopod within Gitzo's range, the GM4542 is well suited to nearly any task or any equipment. Its 4-section design allows the monopod to collapse down to just 22.8" in length-with the smallest leg section measuring 1" in diameter—ensuring both stability and portability.

Denoting its "jack-of-all-trades" designation, the GM4542 offers impressive strength that originates from its use of Gitzos's 6X Carbon eXact tubing and patented G-Lock Ultra designs. The professional-grade 6-layer carbon weave allows the monopod to maintain maximum strength while keeping weight to an absolute minimum. The G-Lock Ultras also add to the tubing's strength by providing a rigid connection between leg sections and protecting the joints from dust, dirt, and moisture.

At the monopod's base is a redesigned rubber foot that features a pivoting ball-joint for smooth tilts and twists. Users may also remove the foot if necessary and replace it with optional rubber feet or an optional metal spike. The GM4542 also features Gitzo's standard textured hand grip for enhanced ergonomics and a removable wrist strap for increased security.
