Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Gitzo G1380 professional fluid video head is designed for lightweight ENG cameras. The G1380 head incorporates important video features such as perfect balancing system, variable fluid drag control on pan and tilt movements for smooth repeatable actions, as well as separate pan and tilt locks. The counterbalance system is adjustable with 6 interchangeable springs (included) to cover camera weights from 2.2 to 22 lbs.
Safe Grip - Safe Grip is a material that gives a safer lock between your camera and the head plate, preventing the camera from moving or slipping. It is used on quick release plates and in applications where the camera equipment is screwed to the support to reduce pivoting and twisting.
Separate Pan Control - When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independent of front-back or lateral tilt movements is convenient for panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required.
Separate Friction Control - By fine tuning the freedom of movement of the head, friction control makes the head slower and more precise or faster and looser. This feature also helps to make using heavy equipment or long lenses safer. On ball and fluid head models without separate friction controls, slowly adjusting the lock knobs gives similar results.
Reversible Handles - Handles can removed and repositioned or rotated in different positions. This feature greatly increases a head’s versatility and is particularly appreciated by left handed users.
Leveling Bubble - The leveling bubble helps you to get your photographs, film or scope viewing perfectly horizontal or vertical. Gitzo’s production staff set all leveling bubbles by hand in order to ensure 100% accurate level indication.
Double Quick Release Safety System - The system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button, that prevent camera equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released. Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.
