GITZO GM4562 Series-4 Carbon eXact 6-Section Monopod Overview
The Gitzo GM4562 Series 4 Monopod is a 6-section, lightweight carbon fiber monopod designed for professional sports photographers who need a compact, agile and lightweight solution. 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. However, 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 GM4562 reaches up to 154 cm, securely supporting an impressive 30 kg-worth of equipment. It weighs just 670 grams, folds down to 44 cm 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 GM4562 base features an innovative 50 mm rubber foot with a pivoting ball-joint for smooth movement that is perfect for capturing moving subjects. It provides solid footing and maximum stability on any surface and can be removed when necessary and replaced with optional feet or metal spikes.
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. The GM4562 replaces the Series 5 GM5561T.
Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.
Our G-lock system has been redesigned from the inside out; G-lock Ultra is smoother and softer to use, and is designed to reduce dust and grit from getting in.
