The Acratech GP Ballhead has long been recognised as a leader in its class.

The GP even won DP Reviews coveted “Top Pick” and now Acratech is moving competitively forward with their new GXP Ballhead.

The GXP has a wide range of significant new features and it continues the tradition of Acratech’s world-class quality.

New Features of the GXP:

  • Innovative form-follows-function design.
  • Solidly supports an impressive 50.lbs. (double the capacity of the GP)
  • The GXP only weighs 1.lb bearing a 50:1 load ratio.
  • Large, easy to tighten, high torque lock knob is easy to tighten even with heavy winter gloves on.
  • New extra fine tension adjustment.
  • The unique, panoramic adjustable zero pointer makes it easy to return to your starting point when you are shooting a sequence of images.
  • The quick release clamp has deep side notches for more clearance with other manufacturers stop screws.
  • The level on the quick release clamp is clearly visible even with your camera attached to the clamp.
  • The quick release clamp jaws are more pointed to be more compatible with some manufactures quick release plates with less pointed dovetails.
  • The locking lever clamp has a safety zone so the first 25% of the levers motion will not allow your camera to release.

Features of the GXP that carry on the GP tradition:

  • The patented gimbal feature makes it quick and easy to track follow moving objects with ease.
  • With GPX in panoramic mode you can use the ball to level the panning surface and you can do accurate stitched panoramic images without a levelling base.
  • Open structure dirt and moisture falls through instead of getting trapped inside like a conventional ball-head.
  • Precision CNC machined from aircraft quality aluminium and stainless steel.
  • Made in the USA in Acratech’s Pomona, California facility.
  • 10 Year warranty.
  • Fits all Arca-Swiss compatible quick release plates.
  • Fits all standard tripods (1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threads)
  • Beautiful satin black anodised finish
  • Solid precision feel
  • The knobs are secured so they cannot vibrate loose and fall off.
  • Oil-less and greaseless ball will not attract or hold dirt and debris.
