Gitzo GH5750QR Ball Head

Gitzo GH5750QR Series 5 Magnesium Off-Center Ball Head With Quick Release

The Gitzo GH5750QR Magnesium Off-Center Ball Head replaces the classic Gitzo G1576M head in a completely revisited version. The Gitzo GH5750QR head may look like its predecessor, with the same look and design of the high quality magnesium shell, but the internal components and mechanisms are completely re-engineered. The weight has been reduced by 15-17% and state-of-the-art Gitzo technologies have been introduced. The GH5750QR supports cameras up to 26.5 pounds. This translates to a 66-pound payload measured according to Gitzo's competitors' standard, directly on the head attachment screw. This method leads to a maximum payload 2.5 times higher than Gitzo standard that is more severe and uses a 4.7-inch lever to simulate equipment center of gravity.


Gitzo GH3780QR Ball Head

Gitzo GH3780QR Series 3 Magnesium Center Ball Head With Quick Release

The Gitzo GH3780QR Magnesium Center Ball Head replaces Gitzo's G1378M Center Ball Head. The GH3780QR supports cameras up to 46.2 pounds. Gitzo's new magnesium center ball heads are designed to deliver the perfect balance of high max load, smoothness, minimized drift angle, lightweight design, low center of gravity, greater tilt angles, compactness, ergonomics and safety. This is achieved through numerous Gitzo exclusive technical solutions, such as the hollow Bubble Ball, the Spring Assisted Double Lock (SADL) and new leveling system. The Bubble Ball allows for an impressive weight reduction while providing these heads the best weight to max load ratio in the market. The revolutionary SADL system combined to the PTFE treated Bubble Ball guarantees both an exceptional locking power and ultra smooth high precision movement.


Gitzo GH5381SQR Systematic Ball Head

Gitzo GH5381SQR Systematic Quick Release Ball Head

Replacing the GH5380SQR head the Gitzo GH5381SQR Systematic Quick Release Ball Head is fully compatible with updated Systematic tripods, in particular with the safety catch feature of Gitzo's updated Systematic range, offering secure, accident-proof support, even during changeovers of center components. A GS5300S step-up adapter ring is included with the head to allow it to be used on any Series 2, 3, 4 or 5 Systematic tripod. The Systematic head is a low-profile, wide, stable quick release ball-type head that fits into the shoulder of a Systematic tripod. It allows a camera to be mounted very close to the top of the tripod for optimal support, and lets the camera be levelled or angled accurately with 28 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation around the central axis. The Systematic head features a hydraulic locking system, which allows faster control, great locking speed and exceptional smoothness. The sliding quick release system allows a camera to be quickly attached, removed and centered above the tripod for stability. A secondary safety mechanism prevents the plate and camera from sliding out accidentally. The hook on the underside of the head allows weights or bags to be hung under the tripod to further improve stability.
