At long last, birdwatchers have a tripod head designed specifically for following the action of birds. Gitzo incorporates fluid cartridges to guarantee exceptionally smooth and controlled manuevering for tracking at a long distance and close to friction-free repostioning when the action speeds up. Once the bird settles in one spot, a single large control knob makes it a cinch to make pan and tilt adjustments to the head positon or lock it into position without any give or play. Add to all this the exceptionally light weight of only 1 pound, amazingly low profile of 3.6 inches, and impressively strong load-bearing capability of 8.8 pounds, and this tripod head becomes the must-have for serious birdwatching.

I recently purchased this head to use with a light spotting scope. It works very well, particularly given its relative light weight.

Tripod head review - 08/11/2012

by Pat from Bemidji, MN

This is the lightest tripod head I have had, and like it a lot. It is easy to use with good rotation, both side to side and up and down. I am using it with my Nikon Fieldscope which is very lightweight and a Gitzo tripod.
