The Gitzo Two-Way Fluid Tripod Head is an ultra-lightweight solution dedicated to watching nature in the great outdoors, featuring pan and tilt fluid cartridges to provide smooth, controlled movement. It also includes a Quick Release system for quick and easy equipment attachment/removal. This extremely lightweight tripod head is made of highly rigid magnesium, weighs 460 grams and supports a load up to 4 kg. The GH1720QR's single-lock mechanism controls the 360° pan and ± 110° tilt movements via a single knob, for easier and more efficient adjustment. The tripod head is supplied with a removable, reversible pan bar and can be set up for both right/left-handed use, and its high-precision mechanism provides maximum stability and accuracy. The GH1720QR provides the ultimate shooting speed and versatility when used with Gitzo carbon fiber tripods. This compact tripod head is ideal for accompanying photographers on birdwatching and wildlife photography trips.

Features:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • FLUID CARTRIDGE: A fluid cartridge consists in a system made with two parts that slide one on the other. Inside the system is included a special fluid that controls the movement and makes it extremely soft, Â"fluid" and smooth. The cartridgeÂ's inner design is very important and if well designed allows maximum movement control yet minimizes cartridge weight and size. Gitzo uses a special fluid that guarantees a consistent performance over a wide range of temperatures.
