Quality Do It All Option


from Southern Vermont USA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I don't really know where I'm going with my photography. But I do like knowing my equipment is bullet proof and can handle going in whatever direction I choose to take. That's why I chose this head and paired it with a Berlebach 2032. Which incidentally was recommended to me as quality equipment that would last me a lifetime and then some by a 40+ year professional photographer. After using this combination for a while I still haven't used all the functions the head is capable of. But, it's served me flawlessly. I do remove the head when I'm not using it and store it in my camera bag inside its original box. It is rugged but it's also something I don't want to pay to replace because I was negligent in caring for my equipment. I prefer buy once cry once. Not wash rinse repeat if you know what I'm saying. Overall a very fine head and proudly made in the USA and you can't say that about very many products in this game especially these days.


Great Ball head


from San Diego  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used for outdoor, nature photography. Precision feel throughout; excellent quick release system; packed with features. Like that the ball head does not need lubrication. Love the fact that this product is made in the USA.

A solid but very light product


from Nl,Canada  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this head to go with my gitzo 1228 tripod. Both are very light but very well made. I think it is a good product but I havn`t had it for long.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can anyone give me a quick review of whether you're happy with this ball head or not? Thanks,
ROBERT J  The head is great. However, it is lacking in one aspect. The ability to tilt the head up or down precisely to shoot multiple rows of shots for a panorama. But obviously, if you over-shoot the area wanted, it ceases to be a problem.
Steven R  Is the Acratech GP Ballhead compatible with BOTH the RRS L-Bracket AND the Cotton Carrier vest harness? In other words, can the L-Bracket accommodate the Cotton Carrier mounting Hub while also attached to the Ballhead? Thanks.
Steven R  Jeff, Thanks for your reply and information. Steve
