Details

The Gitzo G2272M low profile head, is made of ultra light magnesium. The distance from the top of the tripod to the camera platform is reduced in order to ensure that the camera's centre of gravity is kept over the middle of the tripod to avoid the possibility of overbalancing.

Safe grip

Safe Grip is a material that gives a safer lock between your camera and the head plate, preventing the camera from moving or slipping. It is used on quick release plates and in applications where the camera equipment is screwed to the support to reduce pivoting and twisting.

Separate pan control

When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independent of front-back or lateral tilt movements is convenient for panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required.

Levelling bubble

The G2272M's leveling system is made of three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantee perfectly leveled images. The problem that affects many high quality heads in the market regarding drift angle is absolutely minimised with an outstanding value of 0.03°.

Double quick release safety system

The system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button, that prevent camera equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released. Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.

Magnesium

In 1996 Gitzo was the first to use Magnesium in camera supports. Magnesium comes in different grades and Gitzo only uses material of the highest grade quality. It offers significant weight savings being 30% lighter than aluminum.In our magnesium casting every functional bolt and screw works on threads reinforced by high quality steel inserts for a lifetime performance.
