Gitzo GS5000 reviews

GS5000 Thread Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GS5000 Thread Adaptor Pretty simple device but it was essential to converting the male threads on my tripod (1/4) to the female threads on my ball head (3/8). I was unable to locate one of these locally so I turned to B and H. They never fail to have what I need. I installed the device on my tripod and threaded on my ballhead. It worked great. I did notice when removing the ball head that the the GS5000 adaptor also wanted to unscrew. I applied two drops of Loctite (Blue) to the threads and haven't had anymore trouble. It works great and the blue Loctite will allow me to remove the adaptor in the future if i need to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive yet well made Great for adapting those 1/4 tripod threads to 3/8 It is small, and expensive but it does the job well. You will want to get some locktite, or other adhesive that temporarily binds the threads of your tripod and adapter, otherwise you may try to pan and have your head unscrew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessary Item If You are using a Gitzo Monitor platform with any other tripod you will need this 3/8 to 1/4 adapter. Nothing special about it and gave it 4 stars because of the price. A bit expensive for an adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but effective Allowed me to easily and seamlessly adapt a Bogen head to a Berlebach wooden tripod to use with my 4x5 setup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SV BH2 Pro Ball Head I'm a stock photographer using the BH2 on a monopod for events, etc. This ballhead is well made, easy to work, and holds a D300/zoom/powergrip without loosening. The slightly rough feeling to the ball and minor paint chipping do not affect the overall function of the head. Great product at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Unique Gitzo GS5000 Thread Adapter This thread adapter tops all others. It smoothly adapts the 3/8 inch screw hole to 1/4 inch size with the twist of a screw driver. The beautifully machined stainless steel adapter fits snug and acommodated and complemented the 1/4 male thread of my aging tripod. A joy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great -- pricy though This is a very simple adapter for tripod threads. I hesitate to judge the effort that goes into engineering this small part but it seems very expensive for such a small item. That said it works great and is a lot cheaper than buying a new tripod!!
