Gitzo's  classic G1276M has resurfaced in this revisited version. Its look and the design of the high quality magnesium outer shell are unchanged, but the internal components and mechanisms have been completely re engineered.

The weight has been reduced by 15-17% and new Gitzo technologies have been introduced.

As one of the new range of Gitzo Off Center ball heads, thanks to its unique design, it allows unsurpassed positioning freedom by offering a range of movement impossible with conventional heads.

Off Center Ball heads feature separate pan and tilt controls, graduated base and ultra-light magnesium castings. Pan and tilt lock knobs can also control movement friction. Series 2 Off Center Ball heads are specifically recommended to be used with Gitzo Explorer tripods.


Key Features

  • 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.
  • 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 panoramic photography and when a high level of control is required.
  • DOUBLE QUICK RELEASE SAFETY SYSTEM - The 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. Extremely useful with heavy equipment, long lenses and spotting scopes.
