The Acratech GP-SS Ballhead is uniquely designed to function as a ballhead a Gimbal head and as a leveling base. Plate NOT included. A generic plate or camera specific plates are available separately. The new Acratech GP-SS Ballhead has all the benefits and features of the GP Ballhead, including the ability to function as a gimbal head and as a panoramic head. But the GP-SS Ball head has been designed with a smaller diameter base to allow it to be used with travel type tripods where the legs fold around the tripod head. The smaller base diameter allows the tripod legs to fold more compactly. Even when using your tripod on rocky, uneven terrain the GP-SS Ballhead allows you to pan parallel to the horizon, eliminating the need to carry a separate leveling base to create accurate panoramic images. This ballhead includes our specially designed Quick Release Clamp, with bulls eye level, double speed rubber knob, and detention pin.
The new GP-SS Ballhead is a smaller version of our GP-S ballhead. It still has the same 25LB (11.4KG) capacity and weighs less than 14oz.(.38kg). And it is also available with our locking lever clamp.
