Like all the other Gitzo’s Center Ball Heads, the GH1382QD is a perfectly balanced and versatile tripod head, engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking.
The GH1382QD Series 1 Center Ball Head is Gitzo’s medium-sized professional tripod head designed for Series 0 and 1 Mountaineer tripods. It weighs just 500 grams and safely holds 14-kg load. Standing at 11.2 cm, it’s still compact enough to fit between the folded legs of Series 2 Traveler tripods. Despite its slim design, it is packed with features, including a friction control knob located inside the ball locking knob for precise adjustment. This model features 360° Independent panning lock and provides uncompromising ball smoothness since it’s constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The supplied quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon.
It is supplied with the short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370SD), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo’s D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
Strong, durable, and compact, this tripod head has it all. Meet the Mini Ball Head, the photographic solution that will get the job done. Despite its size, this tough piece of kit can carry up to 4kg with ease. Its compact and durable features make it the ideal accessory for amateurs looking for a flexible and high-quality ball head for point and shoot activities.
