  • Two way birding head
  • +/- 110° tilt range
  • Double quick release system
  • Payload up to 4kg
  • Key innovations of the GH1720QR Bird Watching head, are the new Bird Watching Fluid Cartridges, the Single Lock System and the ultra-precise inner mechanism.
  • Pan and Tilt Fluid cartridges are completely new and offer a completely opposite behavior than the traditional video ones.
  • These innovative cartridges guarantee a ultra smooth and controlled movement at very low speed (exactly what Bird Watchers are looking for), while at high speed the movements become almost completely free, which is very useful when fast equipment repositioning is required.
  • Safe Grip
  • Safe Grip is a material that gives a safer lock between your camera and the head plate, preventing the camera from moving or slipping.
  • It is used on quick release plates and in applications where the camera equipment is screwed to the support to reduce pivoting and twisting.
  • Reversible Handles
  • Handles can removed and repositioned or rotated in different positions.
  • This feature greatly increases a head's versatility and is particularly appreciated by left handed users.
  • Double quick release safety system
  • The system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button, that prevent camera equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released.
  • Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.
  • Fluid Cartridge
  • A fluid cartridge consists in a system made with two parts that slide one on the other.
  • Inside the system is included a special fluid that controls the movement and makes it extremely soft, fluid and smooth.
  • The cartridge's inner design is very important and if well designed allows maximum movement control yet minimizes cartridge weight and size.
  • Gitzo uses a special fluid that guarantees a consistent performance over a wide range of temperatures.
