Details

Gitzo’s Center Ball Heads are designed to be an extremely balanced product, that not only guarantee a high max load, but also maximises other key features including minimized drift angle, reduced weight, lowered centre of gravity, increased range of tilt angle, compactness, ergonomics and safety.

GH2780QD is the popular Series 2 version, and features a hybrid quick release system which comes with an Arca-style plate but also accepts the traditional Gitzo C-profile plates. The camera/plate can be snapped into the head from above, which is faster and easier than trying to slide it in from the side. By simply removing the adaptor from the head, it will also take Gitzo C-profile plates, especially useful for photographers who already own and use our plates as standard.

Spring assisted double lock

The center SADL (Spring Assisted Double Lock) is a patent pending system that combines two locking systems in one, that maximizes both locking power and ball smoothness. A high friction metal guarantees a high efficiency lock, the PTFE bushing controlled by a pre-loaded spring maximises smoothness and control.

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.

Bubble ball

Gitzo has now developed a new exclusive technology that enables us to produce high quality, completely round hollow spheres, with a ultra thin wall, for an incredible weight reduction. Gitzo Bubble Ball also features a perfected PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness for the ultimate shooting experience and accuracy.

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.

PTFE – smooth as silk

PTFE is a special treatment that generates a unique ultra smooth surface and dramatically reduces friction between moving parts. This treatment bonds strongly with metal surfaces and ensures long-lasting performance. PTFE is one of the lowest-friction materials known to science, with the same friction coefficient as melting ice. This treatment is now applied not only to ball heads, but also to plates, video bowls and other sliding parts for smooth, precise and fine movements.
