The Gitzo GH3382QD Series 3 Center Ball Head is Gitzo’s larger size professional tripod ball head. It is ideal for Series 2 and 3 Gitzo Mountaineer tripods and works perfectly with most other Gitzo Series 2 and above tripods. Weighing 770 grams, this tripod ball head safely holds an impressive 18-kg load. The GH3382QD has a larger ball and quick-release adapter compared to the smaller versions. It ensures strong, comfortable use with heavier equipment. It is rich in features, including a friction control knob located inside the ball locking knob for precise adjustment. This model features 360° Independent panning lock and provides uncompromising ball smoothness since it’s constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The supplied quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon.

It is supplied with the Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370D), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo's D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
