The new GHFG1 Fluid Gimbal Head is ideal for wildlife photography and birdwatching, especially for extensive observation, because it guarantees perfect balance, even with heavy equipment. This outstanding new head features both modern design and innovative solutions.

Clean and harmonic lines, Gitzo’s distinctive Noir Décor finish and extreme attention to detail meets the latest technological breakthrough - the fluid cartridge and fluidity control system - making this head the perfect blend of aesthetic appeal and performance. Fluid cartridge technology from the video world is being applied to a gimbal head for the very first time in this model. It absorbs vibrations and ensures smooth movement throughout observation and shooting, even with very large lenses. 

The Fluid Gimbal Head cartridge also features an innovative fluidity control system, the Whip-Pan, which delivers superlative device control with high-speed movements. The device applies automatic friction, maintaining smoothness at low rotation speeds typically required in video heads. 

The GFGH1 Fluid Gimbal Head is especially designed for Gitzo's systematic and mountaineer tripods, celebrated for their incomparable stiffness as the most reliable supports for secure shooting in the harshest of conditions and the most solid base for the broad, gentle movements typical of birdwatching and wildlife photography.
