The Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Ball Head with QR Plate features
an updated quick-release system that accepts both Gitzo C-profile
plates, and Arca-type compatible plates as well. This QR system allows
the plate to be snapped into the head from above, a faster alternative
to sliding in the dovetail plate from the side.
The Series 1
Traveler combines smooth operation, strong-locking materials, and a
compact, lightweight design to provide a low-profile ball head that's
small and light enough to earn it a spot in any travel bag. The head can
support up to 12.1 lb, while weighing only 1 lb, thanks in part to its
hollow Bubble Ball, which achieves a significant reduction in weight.
Like the bushings, the ball is treated with PTFE, a smooth material that
coats the metal ball to enable accurate, low-friction adjustments to
your camera's positioning.
This simplified center ball head
features a single knob for locking pan and tilt. The head features a
full 360° panoramic adjustment range and lateral tilt up to 100° for
portrait orientation. The included quick-release plate is Arca-type
compatible, and detaches from the head via the double quick-release
safety system. Bubble levels on the ball head help ensure your camera
will be aligned with the horizon.
