Product Details


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 aluminium. 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. 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. Full ball-bearing support in tilt axis for zero static or dynamic friction, resulting in 100% smooth movement. 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. A fully retained quick-turn knob allows infinite balance position adjustment and steadfast clamping. 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 weather a photographer can throw at it.
