Amazing product. Works extremely well. When you lock it down, it stays locked down.

Using this ball head as a replacement head on my carbon fiber backpacking tripod. More than enough (grip) strength to hold fast my mirrorless and a 100-500 zoom. I can fine tune the hold(grip) to just how I would like it, rock solid to a small amount of drag, to where it won't just flop over. Would recommend, great build quality, great size.

Good Fit

Purchased to mount on my Gitzo GT1555T tripod that I use when traveling. It handles the weight of my D850 with a 200mm f2.8 lens without any problem. It's size is just right for the tripod. Price is reasonable. Ball action is not as smooth as my Really Right Stuff (RRS) ballhead so I knocked it down one star. RRS does not make a ballhead that fits as well.

Perfect for tabletop tripod

As with anything Gitzo, outstanding design and quality. I'm using this head my Gitzo table top tripod. It adds more flexibility to my tripod.

question

Will this Gitzo ball head work on Gitzo Monopod?
Asked by: Cynthia B.
Yes it will work. These ball heads take a 3/8 screw, so you just need to reverse the monopod screw to use the head.

This Gitzo travel ball head is too sticky and not smooth like my old Promaster cheapo ball head. Is there anyone else with this issue?
Asked by: Karen
In the large knob for tightening the ball head there is a friction adjustment (drag) check this to see if it is too tight. It changes the drag on the ball when adjusting before you lock it down.

question

I have a Peak Design arcs-Swiss type plate would this head fit it?
Asked by: Nicholas K.
I use the Peak Design plates with this Gitzo head all the time and works great. I will swap out for the Gitzo plate if I'm spending a lot of time on the tripod, since it is a bomber set-up.

question

I plan to buy a Gitzo GK2545T tripod with a 1382TQD ball head which is Arca-Swiss compatible. My camera is a Canon 7D without battery grip. What L-bracket would you suggest?
Asked by: Anonymous
I used this particular combination with a Canon 5D this summer in Alaska. The combo was extremely easy to pack and set up. It was sturdy enough using a up to a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. The hook on the center column was convieniet to use to hang the carrying case loaded with extra weight in windy conditions. Even though I have an L-bracket it is not needed because the ball head comes with an Acra-Swiss compatible.
