Benefits of the Mountaineer 
The Mountaineer Series are ultra-stiff tripods aimed at professional and advanced amateur photographers who own cameras with high resolution full-sized sensors and/or lenses with long focal lengths. It's built for users who need stability, who are often on the move and who are focused on landscape and architectural photography. Mountaineer tripods have been developed further to incorporate the latest Gitzo technology which increases rigidity, improves performance and ease of use for professional photographers.

GH3382QD Ball Head

Gitzo’s Center Ball Heads are extremely balanced and versatile heads, engineered and designed focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking. GH3382QD is the large sized head ideal for Series 2 and 3 Mountaineer tripods, and matches well with most other Gitzo tripods Series 2 and above. Compared to the smaller versions, GH3382QD has a larger ball and quick release adapter, for strong and comfortable use with heavier equipment. It is supplied with the standard, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370D), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo's D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
