This device's main component, Gitzo's Bubble Ball, features an ultra-thin wall for weight reduction and helps to deliver a head with accurate adjustments, a low center of gravity, and smooth, precise tilts ranging from 95° to -13° in addition to 360° panning.
A center Spring Assisted Double Lock (SADL) combines two locking systems in one, which maximizes both locking power and ball smoothness. The Quick Release system provides for fast removal and replacement of your equipment and it is built with three bubble levels on the quick release plate plus one in the ball stem for highly accurate positioning.
