Product Highlights
  • Supports 11 lbs (5 kg)

The Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center Magnesium Ballhead follows the same outer shell design and look of the G1275M, but has completely redesigned and re-engineered internal components and mechanisms. The weight has been reduced by 15-17%, and new Gitzo technologies have been introduced.

Exceptionally smooth rotation, positive locking and rapid camera mounting are all features common to the Gitzo designed range of ballheads. The graduated base, with independent locking facilities permits perfect panoramic photography. The design of the panoramic base permits the ballhead to be used for table top or near ground level work with or without the use of a tripod. This is an offset ballhead, which makes it possible to point more than 90° down.

Recommended for use with Series 2 tripods

    Comments about Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center Magnesium Ballhead:

    This head is revolutionary for a ball head. Putting aside its excellent strength to weight ratio, the real value of this head is after panning, you can dial in the Y axis and then partially tighten the large knob, then you can correct the X axis to Horizontal bubble level, WITHOUT the Y axis changing position. This is what sets this ball head apart from other ball heads. Although its not advertised, there is actually 3 different pivot points, pan, x, y axis, similar to traditional heads, but without the handles... brilliant design, and perfect execution... Also, glad Gitzo is finally letting us put our own Arca clamps atop their pods. Sooner or later they should give in to this well accepted standard...

      Comments about Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center Magnesium Ballhead:

      This head is really nice and light. [...] the screw to attach the camera is really hard to use. Rather than deal with that I went with a head with a quick release plate.

        Comments about Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center Magnesium Ballhead:

        After years of using an old Gitzo ball head I bought this one. I'm very happy with it, it works great and looks good too. The big problem I had with my old head was once you get everything aligned the platform would shift slightly when you tighten it down. Not the case with the new head. The pan feature is nice and I really like the big knob to lock down the platform. An excellent product at a reasonable price.
