Gitzo Series 1 Aluminium Centre Quick Release Ball Head

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 Traveller Series 0 and 1 tripods. It stands 10.4 cm high, holds up to 11 kg, and weighs a mere 0.39 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 Traveller Tripods

Like all the other Gitzo’s Center Ball Heads, the GH1382TQD Gitzo Alu Ball Head for Traveler Tripod is a perfectly balanced and versatile tripod head, engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking.

The GH1382TQD Center Ball Head Series 1 Traveler is the slimmest tripod head in the Gitzo professional tripod head range. It weighs just 390 g and safely holds an 11kg load. Standing at 10.4 cm, it is compact enough to fit between the folded legs of Series 0 and 1 Traveler tripods. 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 GH1382TQD Center Ball Head is supplied with a short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370SD) and is also perfect with all Gitzo's D profile plates. Its quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon. This tripod head fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
