The Acratech GP Ball-Head has long been recognized as a leader in its class. The GP even won DP Reviews coveted “Top Pick”. Now Acratech is moving competitively forward with their new GXP Ball-Head. The GXP has a wide range of significant new features and it continues the tradition of Acratech's world-class quality.
Our Acratech GXP Ball-Head is uniquely designed to function as a Ball Head, a gimbal head, and a leveling panoramic head. It’s like getting 3 pieces of equipment all wrapped up in one beautiful and lightweight unit!
The Gimbal action will have you shooting action like a pro. The Gimbal feature works with any lens (up to 400mm F4.0) that has a tripod collar. The pin in the bottom of the ball and the sleeve on the stem of the ball is what creates a smooth pivot for the Gimbal.
Unscrew the quick release clamp and put it onto the bottom of the head and you are now ready to use the the GXP Ball-Head to create level, single row panoramas. This eliminates the need to carry a separate leveling base in order to create accurate stitched panoramas, as you'll be able to pan parallel to the horizon even when using your tripod on rocky or uneven terrain.
All Acratech Ball-Heads are designed and built to be lightweight for travel photography and rugged for the active outdoor photographer. The open structure lets moisture, dirt and debris fall through instead of being trapped inside a socket.
