Yes. That is correct! You would be able to mount The Gitzo 2-Way Fluid Head, onto The Gitzo GIGT1545T, Traveler Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod. You may want to add a leveler in between. See below. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/431861-REG/Acratech_1117_Leveling_Base.html

Will this work/fit on a Gitzo GIGT0545T Traveler ...

Will this work/fit on a Gitzo GIGT0545T Traveler Series 0 tripod?
Asked by: David
Yes. The head takes either 1/4" or 3/8" mounting screws, the the two standard sizes used by most quality tripod makers, and the tripod specs say it uses either size, as, I think, does every Gitzo tripod or head I have ever tried, either larger or smaller than the Series 0.) My 2-way head came with an adapter between the two sizes, but they are also readily available, if you need one, at almost any good photo or hardware store.

Would it be possible to "perfectly" balance a 80D with EF 50mm f1.4 so that I can point the camera at any direction, at any tilt angle and the camera would stay absolutely "stationary" at the pointed direction?
Asked by: W
Yes the 80D with the EF 50 f/1.4 can easily be balanced on this fluid head.

Do I need a different plate for the Swarovski ATX ...

Do I need a different plate for the Swarovski ATX 95mm?
Asked by: Ashley
I do not know what type of plate the Swarovski ATX 95mm has. From a brief search, It appears the mounting foot on that Swarovski is an Arca Swiss style mounting foot/plate. PLEASE do not take my word on this and verify personally before making any purchase decision.I have an older Leica spotting scope with an Arca Swiss type adapter plate which was required to mount on my non-video/fluid ball head. The Arca Swiss style plate mounted easily on the Gitzo 2-way fluid head without any additional adaptation required. I can tell you that the functionality of the fluid video style head is far superior to any standard ball or tilt/pan type tripod head.

Would it be possible to "perfectly" balance a 80D with EF 50mm f1.4 to a stage where I can point the camera at any direction, any tilt angle and the camera would stay precisely stationary as pointed?
Asked by: W
It will stay stationary as long as the load is balanced, within limits and the head is tension is properly adjusted.
