Professional photographers who want a heavy-duty tripod head that can perform in extreme conditions will welcome the Gitzo Series 4 Ball Head. Precisely manufactured using high-tolerance steel and aluminium components, it weighs less than 1 kg and can securely hold an impressive 30 kg load such as a pro camera with a 400-600mm lens. The unit perfectly complements Gitzo’s Series 3, 4 and 5 Systematic tripods and is available in both lever and screw plate lock configurations. It is rich in features, including an independent friction control for precise adjustments, a bubble level, a 360° independent panning lock and a short-rotation fast lock. Supplied with the Gitzo’s D profile plates, the Ball Head Series 4 is also compatible with Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
