Gitzo Series 1 Aluminium Centre Quick Release Ball Head

The Gitzo S1 Alu Centre Ball Head QD is an Arca-type compatible head that is an ideal match for Mountaineer Series 0 and 1 tripods. It stands 11.2 cm high, holds up to 14 kg, and weighs a mere 0.5 kg. The head has a separate lock for the 360° panning and another to control the movement of the ball. A tungsten disulphide coating on the ball helps keep the ball movement smooth and minimises stick-slip. A screw-knob lock tightens down on the included quick-release plate and a bubble level helps you maintain straight horizons in your images. To allow for precise adjustments, a friction control dial is integrated into the large locking knob.

Designed for Series 0 & Series 1 Mountaineer Tripods

Like all the other Gitzo’s Center Ball Heads, the GH1382QD is a perfectly balanced and versatile tripod head, engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking.

The GH1382QD Gitzo S1 Center Ball Head is Gitzo’s medium-sized professional tripod head designed for Series 0 and 1 Mountaineer tripods. It weighs just 500 g and safely holds 14 kg load. Standing at 11.2 cm, it’s still compact enough to fit between the folded legs of Series 2 Traveler tripods. Despite its slim design, it is packed with features, including a friction control knob located inside the ball locking knob for precise adjustment. This model features 360° Independent panning lock and provides uncompromising ball smoothness since it’s constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The supplied quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon.

It is supplied with the short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370SD), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo's D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
