The Gitzo Series 1 GH1780QD Center Ball Head is a lightweight magnesium ball head with a QR plate that incorporates many innovative features. It is designed to match the range of high performance tripods. A large locking knob controls the movement of the ball, while a separate lock controls the 360deg. panning motion. The Spring Assisted Double Lock combines two locking systems in one to maximize locking power and ball smoothness.
A double quick-release safety system consists of two safety pins to protect your camera from falling from the head when the locking knob is released.
