Gitzo G1570M overview

  • 1Description

3-Way Heads are designed to carry a specific load. Large ergonomically designed handgrips ensure effortless vertical and lateral tilting and 360 degree panning. Low profile heads provide solid support and flexibility for large format and video cameras. The distance from the top of the tripod to the platform is reduced to ensure that the center of gravity of the camera is kept over the middle of the tripod to avoid the possibility of overbalancing.

Recommended for use with Series 4 and 5 tripods. Platform size 6 x 3.4" (15.2 x 8.6cm).

With 1/4-20" and 3/8" camera mounting screws.

    Gitzo G1570M reviews

    G1570 3 Way Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A heavy and heavy duty tripod head I have some very large camera/lens combinations that require a tripod/head combination to hold nearly 20 lbs. My previous head was a Gitzo ball head which would just tend to flop over when I loosened it enough to move the camera. The Gitzo G1570 3 way head gives me the control I need to quickly move the camera into position. My one problem was with my largest lens (weighs 13 lbs.)in securing it to the head with a single 3/8 screw. I solved this by using 2 - 1/4 screws making it very stable (it also increases the setup time) In general I am very happy with the unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Sturdy Tripod Head I've ever used This thing is stable. As opposed to any other heads I've used, this is by far and away the most reliable and logically designed. Considering its weight limit, its relatively light and requires little effort to tighten down the knobs and levers. When it is tight. It will not move. It comes with 2 knobs to fix onto your camera. One is sufficient for a 20 lb camera but I've been using 2 to tighten it down and its great. With the levers, you get a full range of movements without having to fear a sudden drop. The movements are fluid and gentle. The best tripod head I've ever used.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Professional Quality Very useful for large format (up to 8x10), long, heavy lenses and macro lenses in the field and studio. Works better on aluminum tripods. Too heavy for all but the largest basalt and carbon fiber tripods. Not easily adaptable to sports and quick action. I have owned 2 of them. Very stable but try to get an older M model without the newer and presumably cheaper rubberized plate lining material. It rubs offer in a matter of weeks when connecting long lenses and makes that connection less secure. Heavy but not overly so due to magnesium (2.95 lbs). Vertical handle tightening is too stiff but still pliable enough for most uses. Other movements are fine. Low Profile system limits ability to shoot up at angles greater than 30 degrees. Best Gitzo panning head for nature work as 2270M is too light for 400 2.8 or 500 f4. Use Gimbel head for 600mm+.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent platform Great solid and supportive. Note platform is wide, and if using clamp must use one that has lever quick release flush with base. Most nobs will be too big. Many may prefer to mount direct to large platform for stability but Kessler Crane Kwik release receiver works great if you are swapping from body to lens mount or swapping cameras with two lenses...Do not use wemberly long clamp that was recommended... knob will not allow to mount without some additional plate below it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Super happy with this head. I'm shooting with a 4x5 Sinar F. Handles it perfectly. Could not ask for more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Use it with an 8x10. Pretty darn solid. Easy to reach the handles.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So sturdy Not perfect - would be nice if it had a QR option. But, it holds my Chamonix 8x10 camera very well and the adjustment controls are easy to reach and fluid - not awkward. I liked it so much I purchased a Gitzo GT3532S tripod for this head to rest on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Robust I couldn't tell the scale of this head from the pics, This thing is so strong and large and well made! if you have a Cam rig with some weight this thing will handle it! I have the need to tilt my video rig 90% for a vertical shoot, this is why I bought this robust head. I checked out Manfrotto and some others, but this blows them all away in how well it's made. Love it, and it is Not made in China! it's made in Italy. It is also very gracefully in camera moves.
