Single lock is the other specific innovation for bird watching. Pan and Tilt movements are locked and frictioned in parallel by a single large knob, making head control simple, fast and effective as never before.
A fluid cartridge consists of a system made with two parts that slide one on the other. Inside the system is included a special fluid that controls the movement and makes it extremely soft, 'fluid' and smooth. The cartridge's inner design is very important and if well designed allows maximum movement control yet minimises cartridge weight and size. Gitzo uses a special fluid that guarantees a consistent performance over a wide range of temperatures.
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.
double quick release safety system
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.
Handles can be removed and repositioned or rotated in different positions. This feature greatly increases a head's versatility and is particularly appreciated by left handed users.
