Gitzo's Center Ball Heads are extremely balanced and versatile heads, engineered and developed to be the ideal complements to our top of the range tripods. The completely new range represents the state-of-the-art in the heads’ field, focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking. Available in 3 sizes ideal for Gitzo’s Traveler and Mountaineer Tripods. The new heads family boast a completely newly mechanism, focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking.
Smooth and precise - Tungsten disulfide (WS2) ball coating
Tungsten disulfide is one of the smoothest materials known to science. The coating minimises the irritating "stick-slip" (jerky movement) effect. Tungsten disulfide has such low friction that it requires and extremely efficient locking mechanism (patent pending) and the use of hard metal components under and around the ball, to achieve movement with comfortable friction, strong locking with minimum effort, and compact head sizes.
Precise, safe, and comfortable control of movement
Independent pan lock is available in all 3 models, making it possible to take panoramic photos or make horizontal adjustments for perfect framing. Friction control is available in GH1382QD and GH3382QD, ergonomically located inside the ball lock knob. It functions independently from the ball lock knob, allowing the ball lock to have a short stroke (quick locking).
Intuitive quick release system
The plate is locked with a screw-knob, which makes the system compact, light, and intuitive, while being flexible to accept most Arca-Swiss style plates from a wide variety of brands.
Perfectly matches Gitzo tripods
Unlike the black, cylinder shaped design seen in most ball heads in the market, our heads have slim, curved forms with a triangular accent, and matte grey plated steel top casings. GH1382TQD and GH1382QD have slim designs to fit perfectly between the legs of Traveler Tripods.

- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
