Gitzo Safari Collection Series 2 Ball Tripod Head w/ Quick Release Product Info

Gitzo Safari Collection, Series 2 Center Ball Head with QR GH2780FQR brings the quality and performance of the smaller version to a higher level. The main advantage of this Gitzo Tripod Head over the series 1 version is a higher level of control and smoothness, thanks to the larger sphere. This is especially appreciated when some more friction in the movement is required, especially with longer and heavier equipment. The Gitzo Series 2 Safari Center Ball Tripod Head can also handle a higher payload (though the Series 1 is already more than enough for almost all cases). The Gitzo GH2780FQR Tripod Head is recommended for equipment up to 300mm lenses, and it can safely hold larger camera equipment.

Features of Gitzo Safari Series 2 Center Ball Tripod Head:

  • Spring Assisted Double Lock - a patent pending system that combines two locking systems in one, that maximizes both locking power and ball smoothness. A high friction metal guarantees a high efficiency lock, the PTFE bushing controlled by a pre-loaded spring maximizes smoothness and control
  • Safe Grip - a material that gives a safer lock between your camera and the head plate, preventing the camera from moving or slipping. It is used on quick release plates and in applications where the camera equipment is screwed to the support to reduce pivoting and twisting.
  • Separate Pan Control - When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independent of front-back or lateral tilt movements is convenient for panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required.
  • Leveling Bubble - three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantee perfectly leveled images. The problem that affects many high quality heads in the market regarding drift angle is absolutely minimized with an outstanding value of 0,03°.
  • Double Quick Release Safety System - The system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button, that prevent camera equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released. Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.
  • Gitzo has developed an exclusive technology, producing high quality, completely round hollow spheres, with a ultra thin wall, for an incredible weight reduction. Gitzo Bubble Ball also features a perfected PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness for the ultimate shooting experience and accuracy.
