The Gitzo Series 2 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 2
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 15.4 lb, while weighing only 1.3 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.
