The Gitzo GH5380S Systematic Ball Head is a high-quality head especially ideal for use with long and ultra long lenses, used on a Systematic series tripod. Since long lenses require ultra smooth control, this head features a revolutionary hydraulic locking system placed inside the ball. This system, besides for generating a strong locking power (equivalent to 480kg/1022 lbs of pressure), allows for a quicker and more ergonomic control.
This head provides 360° pan and +28/-28° tilt. Being dedicated to long lenses, this head is not designed to provide a 90° portrait mode. If desired, this position can be achieved by rotating the lens on its collar, or by using an "L" bracket.
