Perfect control for whip-pan shooting. The Fluid Gimbal Head maintains a smooth feeling at low rotation speeds, as normally requested on video heads so users can control movement when they are shooting (avoiding shock and vibration). At high rotation speeds (when users need to quickly reposition the camera), the whip-pan instantly excludes fluidity, allowing free movement.
Design and Functionality:
Fluid rotation is automatically and instantly restored when the rotation speed decreases.
The new Fluid Gimbal Head mounts an Arca Swiss plate-quick, safe, and solid for heavy equipment.
With Gitzo's noir decor finish and attention to detail, this the perfect blend of form and function.
Ideal for wildlife photography, perfect balance of heavy and extremely fluid movement.
