Gitzo, the pioneer of some of the most advanced, revolutionary technologies for professional camera equipment, has built on the great success of its Gimbal Fluid Head by proudly introducing the new 2 Way Fluid Head.
The Gitzo 2 Way Fluid Head provides the highest performance for birdwatchers and digiscopers with medium-sized spotting scopes, as well as for wildlife photographers and videographers using premium CSC or DSLR cameras with lenses up to 200mm.
Birdwatching demands support equipment with specific features, but almost all the heads used by birdwatchers are video- or photo-dedicated supports that are usually larger, heavier and more complicated than they ideally need to be. Uniquely, the Gitzo 2 Way Fluid Head has been developed with a single objective in mind: to fully satisfy both birdwatchers and short/medium-range wildlife photographers, who have very similar needs.
The Gitzo 2 Way Fluid Head is an extremely compact fluid head with a beautiful, ergonomic design. The noir décor reflection-free surfaces offer good camouflage, which is especially critical for use in wildlife applications. The head also provides a comprehensive set of technical features, combined with an exceptional size/weight-performance ratio.
The key innovations of this head are the new fluid cartridges and ultra-precise inner mechanism. The result is an unconventional head perfectly matched to Carbon Fibre Gitzo tripods - an extraordinary combination of performance and portability, designed for ultra-stable and precise spotting and shooting.
Gitzo 2 Way Fluid Head comes with a stiff and lightweight magnesium body weighing only 0.6kg and can safely support a payload of up to 4kg. It is the perfect head to carry outdoors without having to choose between high performance and portability.
Besides the exceptionally smooth movement offered by its high-quality engineering and assembly, the 2 Way Fluid Head features a long rubberised Arca-Swiss compatible plate and a sophisticated, adjustable and highly accurate counterbalance system, which allows photographic equipment to be perfectly balanced and supported easily and firmly for capturing the sharpest shots.
The new 2 Way Head by Gitzo makes it extremely easy to capture moving objects with unparalleled precision, since the fluid cartridges guarantee smooth, wide movements without stick-slip during observation and shooting.
Furthermore, switching from capturing pictures to shooting videos becomes incredibly quick and easy with the Gitzo 2 Way Fluid Head’s video configuration. Rapid setup is assured by the integrated pan bar, which is adjustable to any angle and reversible for left- and right-handed users.
The 2 Way Fluid Head was designed respecting Gitzo’s unmistakably elegant and clean style, which represents the industry’s standard for excellence. SRP inc VAT £289.95
