Series 5 Systematic Ball Head with Quick Release
Arca-Swiss type quick release ball head
The Series 5 Systematic Ball Head from Gitzo is a low-profile friction ball head that fits into the shoulder of a Systematic tripod. The D-profile head is Arca-type compatible, and allows the included quick release plate to be snapped into the head from above, a faster alternative to sliding in the dovetail plate from the side.
The low-profile design allows a camera to be mounted very close to the top of your tripod, giving you optimal support. It can be mounted to any tripod with a 3/8"-16 stud, or it can be fitted into the upper casting of any Systematic tripod. The head rotates a full 360° around the central axis and tilts +/-28° laterally. A hydraulic locking system allows fast control and smooth locking speed. It also features a Systematic safety catch, which when used with select Systematic tripods, prevents the head from falling out of the tripod. The included ring adapter is required when using this head with a Series 5 Systematic Tripod.
