Gitzo's Center Ball Heads are extremely balanced and versatile heads, engineered and developed to be the ideal complements to our top of the range tripods. The completely new range represents the state-of-the-art in the heads’ field, focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking. Available in 3 sizes ideal for Gitzo’s Traveler and Mountaineer Tripods. The new heads family boast a completely newly mechanism, focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking.

Smooth and precise - Tungsten disulfide (WS2) ball coating 
Tungsten disulfide is one of the smoothest materials known to science. The coating minimises the irritating "stick-slip" (jerky movement) effect. Tungsten disulfide has such low friction that it requires and extremely efficient locking mechanism (patent pending) and the use of hard metal components under and around the ball, to achieve movement with comfortable friction, strong locking with minimum effort, and compact head sizes.

Precise, safe, and comfortable control of movement 
Independent pan lock is available in all 3 models, making it possible to take panoramic photos or make horizontal adjustments for perfect framing. Friction control is available in GH1382QD and GH3382QD, ergonomically located inside the ball lock knob. It functions independently from the ball lock knob, allowing the ball lock to have a short stroke (quick locking).

Intuitive quick release system 
The plate is locked with a screw-knob, which makes the system compact, light, and intuitive, while being flexible to accept most Arca-Swiss style plates from a wide variety of brands.

Perfectly matches Gitzo tripods 
Unlike the black, cylinder shaped design seen in most ball heads in the market, our heads have slim, curved forms with a triangular accent, and matte grey plated steel top casings. GH1382TQD and GH1382QD have slim designs to fit perfectly between the legs of Traveler Tripods.
