A smaller version of the GXP Ball-Head but it still has a robust 35 lb. (15.87kg) capacity.
It also has the ability to function as a Ball-Head, Gimbal head, and a Panoramic head.

The GXP-SS has a shorter quick release clamp, and a smaller base diameter than the GXP and is perfect for travel tripods.

All Acratech Ballheads are designed to be lightweight and rugged for the active outdoor photographer.

The open structure lets moisture, dirt and debris fall through instead of being trapped inside a socket.

Available with the Arca Swiss style knob or locking lever quick release clamp.

Camera quick release plates sold separately.
