About the Gitzo GH1780QD

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.

Gitzo GH1780QD Includes

  • Gitzo Series 1 GH1780QD Center Ball Head with Bubble Sphere
  • GS5370C Quick Release Plate with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 Screws
  • Gitzo 5 Year Limited Warranty

Gitzo GH1780QD Features

  • Safe Grip: This material provides a safe lock between your camera and the QR plate, reducing camera twist
  • Spring Assisted Double Lock: A high friction metal guarantees a high efficiency lock and the PTFE bushing - controlled by a pre loaded spring - maximizes smoothness and control
  • Double Quick Release Safety System: The quick release system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button. This design prevents heavy equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released
  • Bubble Ball: The Bubble Ball is produced as a completely round hollow sphere, with an ultra thin wall for weight reduction. The Bubble Ball also features a PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness
  • Bubble Levels: The three bubble levels on the ball head allow you to always keep one bubble in front of you and one on the side, both for horizontal and vertical compositions. This helps ensure leveling accuracy in any position
  • Extended Tilt Range: This head offers independent pan and tilt locks with 360deg. pan movement, +95/-13deg. tilt movement and a graduated engraved panoramic base
