The Gitzo Systematic Head for Series 2, 3, 4 & 5 Systematic Tripods is a low-profile friction ball-type head that fits into the shoulder of a Systematic tripod. An included Gitzo step-up adapter ring makes it compatible with any Series 2, 3, 4 or 5 Systematic tripod. A quick-release camera plate with 1/4" and 3/8" screws and a locator pin is also included. A safety mechanism protects the plate from sliding off.
The low-profile design allows a camera to be mounted very close to the top of the tripod for more stable support. The head rotates a full 360° around the central axis and tilts +/-28° laterally, and a hydraulic locking system allows faster and smoother locking speed. A hook on the underside allows weights or sandbags to be hung for additional stability.
