Some specific features also make this head the ideal tool for photographers and bird watchers using long focal length lenses. First, pan and tilt locks and separate friction controls are positioned on the same side for ergonomic, fast and precise action. Second, the pan lock is based on a unique system that completely eliminates any unwanted movement at the moment of locking, making the G2380 ideal when exceptional targeting precision over very long distances is needed.
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.
SEPARATE FRICTION CONTROL
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.
The levelling bubble helps you to get your photographs, film or scope viewing perfectly horizontal or vertical. Gitzo?s production staff set all levelling bubbles by hand in order to ensure 100% accurate level indication.
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.
SEPARATE PAN CONTROL
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.
