Professional Wildlife Photography Equipment for serious photographers

The Gitzo Gimbal Fluid Head is an essential piece of wildlife photography gear. It has a load capacity of up to 8 kg making it ideal for those longer lenses and allows for smooth and stable panning and tilting, which is of the utmost importance when capturing birds in flight or other wildlife using a large lens.

Features

  • Load Capacity: 8 kg
  • Weight: 1.35 kg
  • Arca-Type Compatible, QR Plate Included
  • Fluid Cartridge for Smooth Movement
  • Whip-Pan Fluidity Control System
  • +/- 180° Tilt, 360° Panning
  • Independent Pan and Tilt Lock
  • Removable Panning Handle
  • Magnesium & Aluminium-Alloy Construction

Employing the smoothness and vibration absorption of a fluid head with the balance and range of movement of a traditional gimbal, the Gimbal Fluid Head from Gitzo is ideal for wildlife photography and bird watching, even for extensive observation and with heavy equipment. The head supports up to 8 kg of gear and weighs 1.35 kg itself. It has a tilting range of +/- 180° along with a full 360° panning range, and both axes have independent locks for precise control.

Using fluid cartridge technology, borrowed from the cine and video industry, movements are rendered smooth and stable and a fluidity control system, the Whip-Pan, affords precise control and manoeuvrability when tracking at high speeds. The Whip-Pan automatically applies friction, excluding the fluid rotation on the panoramic axis, for realistic motion dynamics without shock or vibration. This system also regulates the fluidity depending on rotating and tilt speeds for consistent control regardless if doing slow or high-speed rotations.

The head's control knobs have a soft-touch, ergonomic design and the panning bar is detachable for a more compact form factor when not in use. There is a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base for extensive compatibility and an Arca-type plate with rubber grips is included. Additionally, the head is constructed from lightweight magnesium and aluminium alloys and finished with Gitzo's trademark Noir Décor finish.
