About the Gitzo GH2720FQR

The GH2720FQR Safari head offers the same level of quality and technology of the smaller series 1 with an even higher level of performance and stability. In this size Gitzo design guarantees a degree of accuracy, smoothness and stability never experienced before, becoming an indispensable support for the serious birdwatcher. This head is also recommended for HD video applications with the latest generation of DSLRV cameras.

Gitzo GH2720FQR Features

  • Safe Grip is 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
  • Handles can be removed and repositioned or rotated in different positions. This feature greatly increases a head's versatility and is particularly appreciated by left handed users
  • 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
  • A fluid cartridge consists of a system made with two parts that slide one on the other. Inside the system is included a special fluid that controls the movement and makes it extremely soft, 'fluid' and smooth
  • Single lock is the other specific innovation for bird watching. Pan and Tilt movements are locked and frictioned in parallel by a single large knob, making head control simple, fast and effective as never before
  • Magnesium comes in different grades and Gitzo only uses material of the highest grade quality. It offers significant weight savings being 30% lighter than aluminum. In magnesium casting every functional bolt and screw works on threads reinforced by high quality steel inserts for lifetime performance
