Product Highlights
  • Self-Leveling Electronic Tripod Head
  • Tilt, Pan and Level With 0.1 Accuracy
  • Remote Controlled by Dedicated Software

Gitzo's GH5130RC Series 5 Athena 3-Way Electronic Head is a remote-controlled motor-driven tripod head, giving you stable, extremely precise movement in every direction. It provides 360° panoramic rotation, +/- 180° tilt range, and +/- 180° leveling range with 0.1° accuracy on three totally independent axes. Dedicated software lets you control the camera angle precisely by remote control, and the head's finely-tuned mechanisms let you adjust it to the precise angle you want.

This head has been designed with the latest generation of remote-controlled DSLR professional cameras--it's ideal for nature and sports photography where variability and unpredictability are constant challenges. The Athena is also perfect for architectural and scientific photography when precision and stability are paramount. For situations when you can't stay with the camera, or you can't wait for the right moment, leave your camera on the Athena head and still capture the perfect image.
