The Gitzo GHFG1 gimbal head has been designed to work perfectly for wildlife photography, videography and digiscoping. Movement in both axes is fluid damped which gives smooth panning and tilting. The horizontal damping can be disconnected for rapid panning. A first in a gimbal head is the detachable pan arm, which is a real boon for video and scoping. The diecast magnesium body is strong and lightweight, and has large easy to grasp control knobs. The supplied sliding Arca compatible plate allows easy balancing of the equipment.
