Awarded "Best Buy: Practical and Versatile" by DPReview April 2015
It’s like getting 3 pieces of equipment all wrapped up in one beautiful and lightweight unit!
Our Acratech GP Ballhead is uniquely designed to function as a Ballhead, a gimbal head, and a leveling panoramic head.
The Gimbal action will have you shooting action like a pro. The Gimbal feature works with any lens (up to 400mm F4.0) that has a tripod collar. The pin in the bottom of the ball and the sleeve on the stem of the ball is what creates a smooth pivot for the Gimbal.
Unscrew the quick release clamp and put it onto the bottom of the head and you are now ready to use the the GP Ballhead to create level, single row panoramas. This eliminates the need to carry a separate leveling base in order to create accurate stitched panoramas, as you'll be able to pan parallel to the horizon even when using your tripod on rocky or uneven terrain.
All Acratech Ballheads are designed to be lightweight and rugged for the active outdoor photographer. The open structure lets moisture, dirt and debris fall through instead of being trapped inside a socket.
Available with our Arca Swiss style, knob or locking lever quick release clamp.
