The Fluid Gimbal Head is ideal for wildlife photography and birdwatching, especially for extensive observation, as it guarantees perfect balance, even with heavy equipment. This outstanding head features both modern design and innovative solutions. Harmonic lines, Gitzo’s distinctive Noir Décor finish and extreme attention to detail meet the latest technological breakthrough, fluid cartridge and fluidity control system, making this head the perfect blend of aesthetic appeal and performance. Fluid cartridge technology from the video world is being applied to a gimbal head for the very first time. The fluid cartridge also features an innovative fluidity control system, the Whip-Pan mechanism, which delivers superlative device control with high-speed movements. Featuring soft-touch ergonomic knobs and Arca-type quick release, this head is built to perform securely and provide the greatest handling ease, further enhanced by a detachable pan bar. Its stiff yet lightweight magnesium body is the result of high-pressure hot chamber die casting, which makes it possible to obtain low profiles with robust streamlined design, conferring the head its extremely strong structure.
