Gitzo Launches New Range of Centre Ball Heads


Gitzo has announced a new range of centre ball heads for its Traveler and Mountaineer tripods, the GH1382TQD, the GH1382QD, and the GH3382QD.

Coated with tungsten disulphide, the new centre ball heads use hard metal components under and around the ball. The locking mechanism eliminates unwanted deforming or drifting.
