Employing the smoothness and vibration absorption of a fluid head with the balance and range of movement of a traditional gimbal, the Gimbal Fluid Head from Gitzo is ideal for wildlife photography and bird watching, even for extensive observation and with heavy equipment. The head supports up to 17.6 lb of gear and weighs 3 lb itself. It has a tilting range of +/- 180° along with a full 360° panning rang, and both axes have independent locks for precise control.

Using fluid cartridge technology, borrowed from the cine and video industry, movements are rendered smooth and stable and a fluidity control system, the Whip-Pan, affords precise control and maneuverability when tracking at high speeds. The Whip-Pan automatically applies friction, excluding the fluid rotation on the panoramic axis, for realistic motion dynamics without shock or vibration. This system also regulates the fluidity depending on rotating and tilt speeds for consistent control regardless if doing slow or high-speed rotations.

The head's control knobs have a soft-touch, ergonomic design and the panning bar is detachable for a more compact form factor when not in use. There is a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base for extensive compatibility and an Arca-type plate with rubber grips is included. Additionally, the head is constructed from lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys and finished with Gitzo's trademark Noir Décor finish

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far - excellent! Usual Gitzo quality, very fluid panning motion and vertical orientation.� Knobs are all easy to use and very good for handling with gloves on.� Pan handle is nice and light and removable (I would have liked a clip or place to store it) It's buttery smooth and the action from moving from a slow pan to fast action is really good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right answer First thing I did was set the gimbal up, mount a Sony A series camera with a 100-400 lens and aim it down for some hummingbird shots. No longer do I have to release the ball head to follow their flight nor do I have to hold it place.
