The GH1 from Opteka is professional heavy-duty gimbal head that will support any camera and lens. The GH1 is lighter and stronger than any other gimbal heads on the market, with a custom designed stiffer swing arm, which is CNC-machined out of solid aluminum.

The GH1 is rated to support over 30 lb – essentially, the longest telephoto lens you can find (800mm-plus) will be well-served by this silky-smooth gimbal. The GH1 gimbal head features a horizontal adjustable mounting element with quick release, which is much easier for installing the lens and serves to avoid the shear stress on the lens collar that side-mounting introduces.

Cutting-Edge Designed
The GH1 gimbal head was completely designed to reduce weight and improve stiffness and overall strength. It can support 30 lb and only weighs 2.7 lb

Ball Bearings
Full ball-bearing support in tilt axis for zero static or dynamic friction, resulting in 100% smooth movement

Quick-Release System
The quick-release base allows the head to be used with any Arca-Swiss type QR standard plates. Plate is included which has a 1/4" screw thread for the camera

Horizontal Mount with Lockout Knob
A fully retained quick-turn knob allows infinite balance position adjustment and steadfast clamping.

Ergonomically Designed Knobs
Soft-touch rubberized knobs offer strong clamping and easy use with bare or gloved hands especially when wet

All-Weather Design
From the hard powder-coated support arm that is also rubberized, to the stainless steel shafts, to the black anodized clamp, the finish will endure the worst a photographer can throw at it

Load Capacity: 30 lb (13.6 kg)
Tripod Mount: 3/8"-16
