The Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center Magnesium Ballhead follows the same outer shell design and look of the G1275M, but has completely redesigned and re-engineered internal components and mechanisms. The weight has been reduced by 15-17%, and new Gitzo technologies have been introduced.

Exceptionally smooth rotation, positive locking, and rapid camera mounting are all features common to the Gitzo designed range of ballheads. The graduated base, with independent locking facilities permits perfect panoramic photography. The design of the panoramic base permits these ballheads to be used for table top or near ground level work with or without the use of a tripod. This is an offset ballhead, which makes it possible to point more than 90° down. Includes the standard size Gitzo quick release plate.

Recommended for use with Series 2 and 3 tripods
Features Safe Grip material, which assures a safer lock between camera and head plate
Supplied with a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw
Platform size 2.4 x 2.7" (6 x 7 cm)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quick Release Plate Fails I bought this tripod head and a matching tripod a few weeks ago. As soon as I started to use the head with the quick release plate, the camera started to move while it was locked in place, and I could not figure out why. When I removed the quick release plate, I noticed that the rubber base which the camera sits on was peeling apart, in other words the glue keeping the rubber in place was melting away, and wouldn't help keep the camera still. At this time I don't know whether the plate can be replaced but I will call BH and see. Recommend? Perhaps you should buy a head without the need of a plate. My previous tripod didn't have one. Who knew?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Head I bought this with the GT2540 tripod, which is fantastic. But I had to replace this awful head. It's big, heavy, awkward and poorly made. First the latch spring came lose and was lost. Then the pin from the camera part of the quick release fell out. Then some sort of oil began to seep from the quick release mechanism. I replaced this contraption with the much smaller, lighter and less expensive Gitzo G1077M. While this one won't hold as much weight, it's fantastic for my 5D with a 24-105L lens. I'll look for a bigger ball head for larger lenses, but will stay away from this off-center device. Clearly an experimental product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT Buy This Product I bought this along with a new Gitzo tripod. I like the tripod but am VERY UNHAPPY with the ballhead. The issue is that it uses the GS5370B Quick Release Plate. Everything works fine until you turn it to the portrait/vertical position. Then it is terrible. Even with a light lens mounted on my Nikon D700 the camera creeps down as it spins around the center support screw. I have mounted the plate in both directions and have the same problem. I have torqued down the screw as hard as possible and the camera still will creep down. I have tried the vertical position on the left and right side of the ballhead and still have the same problem. The creep is so bad you can not even bracket shots for composites because it will not even hold still for even a short period of time but droops down as soon as it is mounted. So long exposures are completely out of the question. In addition as another review noted the padding on top of the quick release plate moves around and bunches up. I emailed Gitzo about the problem and they have not even responded. So...stay away from this product if you at all plan on shooting any vertical/portrait shots.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Concept - Poor Execution The primary purpose of a tripod is to hold the camera stationary and this one does not do that. The rubber (cork in earlier versions) on the plate slides and will not hold the camera stationary. In horizontal positions the head works OK. In anything near vertical the rubber (which is attached with a viscoelastic adhesive) slides. You absolutely can not do multiple exposures or long exposures with the camera held vertically. The off center design is great for allowing variations in camera position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Difference! I had a standard tripod that I wrestled with each time I tried to adjust my camera's position. I finally got tired of fighting it and the Gitzo tripod and ball head. What a difference! It's so easy to reposition my camera wherever I need it. I have a Nikon D5100 with some pretty heavy lenses, but it easily handles them. Packing it in my bag for a trip and easily fits in. Wish I had gotten this first rather than wasting money on cheaper tripod. I would highly recommend this tripod and Gitzo ball head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small package with big appeal great for macro-awkward spots, little effort to lock in position like a vice

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid head I am an amateur photographer. I've never used a tripod before and only recently (two years ago) upgraded to a Canon 5D Mark II. I joined a camera club to upgrade my skills and it soon became evident that a good tripod is essential. I did a lot of research online and attended an industry show with many vendors. Frankly I found it confusing. I knew I wanted quality. I wanted as little weight as possible. A friend who is a pro gave me his recommendation for a tripod (a Gitzo), a tripod head, and a quick release, from three different manufacturers. The quick release he recommended was hard to find. In the end, B&H made it easy by offering a combo deal, all Gitzo, with a Gitzo head that includes a quick release. So far, I've used it on three different photo outings. The head is solid. The quick release works easily. In short, the Gitzo combo works well for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first try with a ball head I've never had a ball head before so it took some getting used to, but I like it. It's compact and lightweight. The only thing that I don't like is that the base sometimes begins to unthread from the tripod (a sort of pseudo-pan), but there's really nothing to do about that. I've learned to periodically check that the threads are tight and that seems to have mostly eliminated the trouble.
