Gitzo panoramic discs have been developed accordingly to the requests and inputs by professional photographers. They combine a number of innovative characteristics that make them a must have accessory. Panoramic discs are made of cast magnesium that allows for a design optimization that maximizes ergonomics and minimizes weight. The disc features an extremely low profile and a wide rotating base, extremely smooth and stable. Thanks to this smoothness it can also be an ideal panning base for additional shooting precision when combined to other heads, especially with the Gitzo Systematic head GH5380S in wild life and sport photography.
