Gitzo 3 Way Fluid Head

Built to replace the Gitzo Low Profile 3 Way Heads, the Gitzo 3 Way Fluid Head has taken huge leaps in providing support to photographers. It has been designed to work best with Gitzo Mountaineer and Gitzo Systematic Tripods.

What are the key features of the Gitzo 3 Way Fluid Head?

  • Independent fluid cartridges set in each axis makes this head's movement extremely smooth.  Its ergonomic handles allow accurate and effortless composition.
  • Patented retractable handles mean the head can become compact without compromise on usability.
  • Constructed from magnesium, the body of this head is very rigid as well as lightweight.
  • Weighing less than 1kg, it will securely hold a payload up to 13kg.
  • The head features a quick release holder with which the plate (7cm rubberized Arca-Swiss compatible plate included) can be easily released.
  • You can adjust the width of the quick release holder with a side screw. This makes it compatible with other plates.
  • A new 90° rotatable plate holder allows easy access to a world of creative freedom. As well as easy landscape - portrait switching, it is also very simple for shooting overhead and below. The rotation also helps when working with larger spider tripods like the Gitzo Systematic.
  • A rotatable spirit level helps you with accurate framing on all the axes.

The upper disc is fixed on the ground level set mechanism’s collar lock system. Rotating it will release the tripod’s centre column. The disc is switchable in the casting for when working at ground level.

An anti-rotation groove in the centre column has a spring-loaded hook at the bottom. This allows additional weight to be added for stability. You can also easily remove this when you wish to invert the column for low level and macro photography.

Gitzo's Carbon eXact tubing uses different size filaments. They depend on the diameter of the tube. This means that different tube diameters can be made larger for the given section to improve stiffness. The thinnest section on the GT1542 model has been made over 20% larger than the previous model.
