Gitzo Introduces New Center Ball Heads

10/08/2015

Gitzo, pioneer in developing some of the most advanced and revolutionary technologies for camera accessories and supports, is proud to introduce a completely new range of Center Ball Heads, representing the state-of-the-art in the heads’ field and focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision.
The Center Ball Heads are dedicated to pros and advanced amateur photographers and are engineered and developed to be the ideal complements to Gitzo’s top of the range tripods. The new heads are available in three sizes ideal for Gitzo’s Traveler and Mountaineer tripods.

 

SMOOTHNESS AND PRECISION

The new Center Ball Heads are coated with tungsten disulphide - one of the smoothest materials around. With an extremely efficient locking mechanism and the use of hard metal components under and around the ball, this mechanism provides comfortable friction onto the ball meaning it can be locked with minimal effort while avoiding unwanted deforming or drifting.

 

COMFORTABLE CONTROL OF MOVEMENT

All three models feature an independent pan lock, making it possible to take panoramic photos or make horizontal adjustments for perfect framing. Friction control is also available in the GH1382QD and GH3382QD. Located in the ball lock knob it functions independently allowing the ball lock to have a quick locking without sacrificing movement and safety.

 

INTUITIVE QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM

The plate is locked with a screw-knob, which makes the system compact, light, and intuitive, while being flexible to accept most Arca-Swiss style plates.

 

PERFECT MATCH FOR THE GITZO TRIPODS

The new Center Ball Heads have slim, curved forms and are aesthetically outstanding with a triangular accent, and matte grey plated steel top casings. Dimensions and colourings are designed to match perfectly with Gitzo’s Traveler and Mountaineer Tripods.


The new Center Ball Head range features the following:

Center Ball Head Series 1 Traveler Quick Release D

•             GH1382TQD

Center Ball Head Series 1 Quick Release D

•             GH1382QD

Center Ball Head Series 3 Quick Release D

•             GH3382QD (Available mid November)

 



The new Center Ball Heads are also included in the brand new Traveler Tripod Kits, as well as in Mountaineer Tripod Kits.
