The Gitzo GH3781QR Series 3 Basalt Center Ball Head is extremely well balanced and is capable of supporting heavy equipment up to 46.2 lb (221 kg). Gitzo's Bubble Ball features an ultra-thin wall for weight reduction and helps to deliver a head with accurate adjustments, a low center of gravity, smooth and precise tilts in addition to 360° panning.

Gitzo's center SADL (Spring Assisted Double Lock) combines two locking systems in one, maximizing both locking power and ball smoothness. The Quick Release system provides for fast removal and replacement of your equipment, plus it is built with three bubble levels on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem for highly accurate positioning. Additionally, the GH3781QR displays Gitzo's stylish black and flame orange color scheme.

Spring-Assisted Double Lock
The new center SADL (Spring Assisted Double Lock) is a patent pending system that combines two locking systems in one maximizing both locking power and ball smoothness. A high friction metal guarantees a high efficiency lock; a PTFE bushing is controlled by a pre-loaded spring for maximum smoothness and control.
Separate Pan Control
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 when a high level of control is required.
Double Quick Release Safety System
The Quick Release 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. This is extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.
Friction Control
By fine tuning the freedom of movement of the head, friction control makes the head slower and more precise or faster and looser. This feature also helps to make using heavy equipment or long lenses safer.
Safe Grip
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.
Leveling Bubble
The new leveling system, made of three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantees perfectly leveled images. The problem that affects many high quality heads in the market regarding drift angle is absolutely minimized with an outstanding value of 0.03°.
Bubble Ball
Gitzo has now developed an exclusive technology that enables production of high quality, completely round hollow spheres with an ultra thin wall for an incredible weight reduction. Gitzo Bubble Ball also features a perfected PTFE treatment that reduces the surface micro roughness for the ultimate shooting experience and accuracy.
