Acratech 1175 overview

  • 1Description

The Ultimate GP Ballhead from Acratech is a precision-machined, compact ballhead with a load capacity of 25 lb. It fits standard 3/8"-16 tripod mounts but can be adapted to 1/4"-20 with an appropriate bushing. This head has the ability to function as a gimbal head for use with lenses up to 400mm f4, negating the need for a gimbal attachment. The Ultimate GP can be used upside-down as a leveling and panning head. Additionally - the base features engraved degree markings for shooting precise panoramic images.

The elimination of lubricants in the design helps prevent "head-creep" which can lead to accidents and ensures continued smooth rotation and freedom of movement. The Ultimate features separate controls for pan control and ball tension. The quick release clamp features a bubble level. This ballhead has a satin black anodized finish and is manufactured in the USA.

    Acratech 1175 reviews

    Ultimate GP Ballhead is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No need to buy anything else, it's the very best I use this with a wide range of small and large cameras. APS-C all the way up to my Mamiya RZ67 film cameras. It can be used as a normal ball head and reversed as a panning head. It handles all of my cameras with ease. Genius design.
