About the Gitzo GH1781TQD

The Gitzo Series 1 GH1781TQD Traveler Center Ball Head with QR Plate combines smooth operation, strong-locking materials and a compact, lightweight design to provide a low-profile ball head that's small and light enough to earn it a spot in any travel bag. The head can support up to 13 lb, while weighing only 1 lb, thanks in part to its hollow Bubble Ball, which achieves a significant reduction in weight. Like the bushings, the ball is treated with PTFE, a smooth material that coats the metal ball to enable accurate, low-friction adjustments to your camera's positioning.

This simplified center ball head features a single knob for locking pan and tilt. The head features a full 360deg. panoramic adjustment range and lateral tilt up to 100deg. for portrait orientation. The included quick-release plate detaches from the head via the double quick-release safety system and features Safe Grip material, to prevent camera twist. Bubble levels on the ball head help ensure your camera will be aligned with the horizon.

Gitzo GH1781TQD Includes

  • Gitzo Series 1 GH1781TQD Traveler Center Ball Head
  • Quick Release Plate D
  • Gitzo 5 Year Limited Warranty

Gitzo GH1781TQD Features

  • 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
  • Bubble Ball: The Bubble Ball is a completely round, hollow sphere, with an ultra-thin wall that results in significant weight reduction
  • PTFE Coating: Gitzo's Bubble Ball also features a PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface's micro-roughness for added accuracy. PTFE is a special treatment that generates a smooth surface and reduces friction between moving parts
