The systematic head is specifically dedicated to photographers who love to shoot with long and ultra long lenses for wild life, sport and action photography. Long lenses require ultra smooth movements, exceptional locking capabilities, minimized drift angle, “super fast” and intuitive operation. The systematic head features a revolutionary hydraulic locking system placed for the first time inside the ball. It is a completely new concept, not just a reversed ball head.
Safe Lock is a special techno polymer that maximises locking torque and equipment stabilisation. It is used on the upper discs of tripods and heads, and in applications where the equipment is rotated and screwed onto the support to eliminate micro movements and vibration.
The new leveling system made of three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantee perfectly leveled images. The problem that affects many high quality heads in the market regarding drift angle is absolutely minimized with an outstanding value of 0,03Â°.
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.
Gitzo has now developed a new exclusive technology that enables us to produce high quality, completely round hollow spheres, with a ultra thin wall, for an incredible weight reduction. Gitzo Bubble Ball also features a perfected PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness for the ultimate shooting experience and accuracy.
GitzoÂ’s Hydraulic Locking System is a completely new concept and for the first time is inserted inside the sphere. The system is very powerful and it can generate a pressure up to 350 PSI. This system allows for a fast and powerful locking, combined in a compact and lightweight structure.
