The Gitzo GH1382QD is a compact but very strong ball and socket head, and is an ideal match for the Traveller Series 2 or Mountaineer Series 0/1 tripods, with a slim sculpted form which allows it to sit neatly within the folded Traveller tripod legs. It features an independent pan lock, built-in spirit level and Arca-compatible camera quick release, as used widely by other brands. Innovative materials are combined with a stylish design to provide huge strength with light weight and compact size.
The ball is coated with tungsten disulphide, which is one of the smoothest materials known, and which has minimal “stick-slip” movement. However this extremely low friction means that Gitzo had to devise a very effective locking mechanism which uses hard metal components under and around the ball. This achieves optimum ease of movement and strong, rapid locking with little user effort.
The simple screw-lock quick release mechanism reduces the top plate bulk considerably compared to previous Gitzo designs and will suit the majority of users. Supplied with a GS5370SD (40x55mm) plate, it will also accept most other manufacturers’ Arca-pattern plates.
