Designed for birdwatchers, digiscopers and wildlife photographers, the Gitzo 2-Way Fluid Head provides a smooth 360° pan when using up to medium telephoto lenses or medium-sized spotting scopes. Weighing in at only 1.3 pounds, this head features a smooth, ergonomic design and reflection-free surfaces for excellent camouflage. Built-in fluid cartridges guarantee smooth, broad movements, and a lateral tilt of -60°/+90°. A spring-loaded counterbalance system maintains balance with a fixed drag, but tension can easily be adjusted for additional resistance. The head is Arca-type compatible and includes a rubberized quick-release plate featuring a standard 1/4"-20 male thread and a removable panning bar. The Gitzo 2-Way Fluid Head can support up to 8.8 pounds of equipment.
