The systematic heads are specifically designed to fit Gitzo Systematic tripods. Thanks to their connection system, it guarantees an ultra stable platform for your high precision equipment. Lightweight, smoothness, ease of use and an ultra strong locking, make it the ideal head for long and ultra long lens applications, such as wild life, sport and action photography. It can also be fitted to standard attachment tripods by a standard 3/8” screw attachment. Long lenses require ultra smooth movements, exceptional locking capabilities, minimized drift angle, super fast and intuitive operation. The Systematic head features a revolutionary hydraulic locking system placed for the first time inside the ball. It is a completely new concept, not just a reversed ball head. The locking collar moves together with your equipment and you will always find the head controls, while keeping your eye in the view finder. The system allows you to set the friction by means of a button that sets the stroke of the locking collar. The head comes in two versions, quick release and 1/4” disc attachments. A small 1/4” to 3/8” screw adapter is included. The quick release system is lever operated to guarantee a safer and stronger operation. It can also fit “Arca style” plates by means of the specific adapter. The connection system dramatically increases stability and makes your equipment a monolithic piece. The head is very sturdy and it offers an extremely low and compact profile. It is the ideal head for traveling and when weight and space are an issue. Being dedicated to long lenses, it does not feature the portrait 90° position. This position can be achieved by rotating the lens on its collar or by using an “L” bracket. Systematic heads come with a convenient Anti Dust Bag for storage and packing.
