About this product

Employing the smoothness and vibration absorption of a fluid head with the balance and range of movement of a traditional gimbal the Gimbal Fluid Head from Gitzo is ideal for wildlife photography and bird watching even for extensive observation and with heavy equipment. The head supports up to 17.6 lb of gear and weighs 3 lb itself. It has a tilting range of +/- 180° along with a full 360° panning rang and both axes have independent locks for precise control. Using fluid cartridge technology borrowed from the cine and video industry movements are rendered smooth and stable and a fluidity control system the Whip-Pan affords precise control and maneuverability when tracking at high speeds. The Whip-Pan automatically applies friction excluding the fluid rotation on the panoramic axis for realistic motion dynamics without shock or vibration. This system also regulates the fluidity depending on rotating and tilt speeds for consistent control regardless if doing slow or high-speed rotations. The head inch s control knobs have a soft-touch ergonomic design and the panning bar is detachable for a more compact form factor when not in use. There is a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base for extensive compatibility and an Arca-type plate with rubber grips is included. Additionally the head is constructed from lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys and finished with Gitzo inch s trademark Noir Décor finish
