The G2180 Aluminium Pand and Tilt Fluid Tripod Head is a compact, low profile fluid head which is lightweight and ideal for use on the move. The reflection-free surfaces offer excellent camouflage when birdwatching and the special Gitzo Soulid 238® is a highly developed techno polymer is 30% lighter than magnesium, but just as strong. The good vibration dampening properties of the material help enormously when panning through 180 or 360 degrees and the G2180 features a sophisticated, adjustable and highly accurate counterbalance system. The G2180 is fine-tuned for use with medium sized spotting scopes, but is also ideal for DSLRs with long lenses and or compact DV camcorders.
Safe grip material is used between the camera and the head plate, to give a safer lock when using equipment. It helps to reduce pivoting and twisting. When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independently of the front/back or lateral tilt movements is really helpful for panoramic photography where a high level of control is required.The handles on the unit can be repositioned and rotated which greatly increases the head's versitility anf great for left handed users.
This clever system, consists of two pins, one of which is fixed and which is operated manually, to stop equipment dropping off the head. terrific to use with heavy equipment. The fluid cartridge within the head, consists of two parts which slide one on the other, but are controlled by a special fluid making it extremely soft to use. Ideal for maximum movement control with minimum shake. Gitzo was the first manufacturer to introduce the balancing system which allows equipment to be balanced when mounted on the head even when this is not locked. Its a really useful system for long lenses, video and bird watching, especially when some degree of action and accurate tracking is needed.
