About the Gitzo Series 1 Counter Balanced Fluid Head

  • Description
  • Specifications
  • Reviews
The G2180 is an extremely compact and low profile fluid head with a beautiful and ergonomic design.


Muted colors and reflectionfree surfaces offer good camouflage in birdwatching and outdoor activities. This head is unique in offering a complete range of technical features combined with an exceptional size / weight to performance ratio. In order to achieve such a compact size and low weight.

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.

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.

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.

When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independent of front-back or lateral tilt movements is convenient for panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required.

By fine tuning the freedom of movement of the head, friction control makes the head slower and more precise or faster and looser. This feature also helps to make using heavy equipment or long lenses safer. On ball and fluid head models without separate friction controls, slowly adjusting the lock knobs gives similar results.
