Gitzo GH1780FQR Series 1 Safari Ball Head with Quick Release Supports 22 lbs. -

The GH1780FQR Safari head is a little jewel of engineering encapsulating Gitzo tradition and approach. A beautiful high performance head, designed to achieve rock solid locking without compromising on control smoothness and comfort. Its extremely small size and lightweight coupled to a 10 kg max load, makes this head the ideal companion for long relaxing outdoor walks without compromising on image quality. Recommended for equipment up to 200 mm lens, it can safely hold larger equipment.


  • Safe Grip is a material that gives a safer lock between your camera and the head plate, preventing the camera from moving or slipping. It is used on quick release plates and in applications where the camera equipment is screwed to the support to reduce pivoting and twisting
  • Magnesium comes in different grades and Gitzo only uses material of the highest grade quality. It offers significant weight savings being 30% lighter than aluminum. In magnesium casting every functional bolt and screw works on threads reinforced by high quality steel inserts for lifetime performance
  • PTFE is one of the lowest-friction materials known to science, with the same friction coefficient as melting ice. This treatment is now applied not only to ball heads, but also to plates, video bowls and other sliding parts for smooth, precise and fine movements


  • The new leveling system made of three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantee perfectly leveled images


  • The system consists of two pins, one fixed and one manually operated by means of a button, that prevent camera equipment from suddenly dropping out of the head when the quick release locking knob is released. Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes
  • Gitzo Bubble Ball features a perfected PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness for the ultimate shooting experience and accuracy
  • When using a ball head, the ability to lock and unlock the panoramic movement independent of front-back or lateral tilt movements is convenient for panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required
  • The new center SADL (Spring Assisted Double Lock) is a patent pending system that combines two locking systems in one, that maximizes both locking power and ball smoothness
