Product Description


Named "Best Buy: Practical and Versatile" by DPReview April 2015

Our Acratech GP Ballhead is uniquely designed to function as a ballhead, a gimbal head, and a leveling base.   It’s like getting 3 pieces of equipment all wrapped up in one beautiful and lightweight unit.

The stem and clamp have a mating pattern that prevents rotation when it is being used as a ballhead.

The pin in the bottom of the ball is what creates the hybrid gimbal action.  This works with any lens (up to 400mm) with a lens collar and foot.  It will have you shooting wildlife like a pro.

Remove the clamp from the stem and invert the GP, you are now ready to level and create a single row panorama. This eliminates the need to carry a separate leveling base in order to create accurate stitched panoramas, as you'll be able to pan parallel to the horizon even when using your tripod on rocky or uneven terrain.

GP Ballheads are offered with either a knob, or a locking lever clamp. Both clamps have a level and detent pin.

Don't forget a camera or lens plate, if you do not have them already.

  • Works as a gimbal head with lenses up to 400/f4.0
  • Works like it has a built in leveling base for single row panoramas
  • Lever clamp is easily adjusted to fit all Arca-Swiss compatible quick release plates
  • Weighs 1 lb. (454 grams) with quick release clamp
  • Easily holds over 25 lbs. (11.4kg) at any angle
  • Compatible with Kirk, Arca, and many other QR plates
  • Fits all standard tripods (1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threads)
  • Oil less and greaseless ball will not attract or hold dirt and debris

  1. Acratech GP Lever Clamp 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2016

    I bought the Acratech GP with Level Clamp about 3 weeks ago. I have been using it in doors so far. Just practicing with it on my tripod. Been very satisfied with it. I use it with a Feisol 3472LV tripod and have attached Nikon D750 with both a Nikon 28-300mm and Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8. It has performed great with no creep at all. It moves very smoothly. I have not yet tried out the gimbal head feature on it. The size and weight of the head is great.

  2. excellent design 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2016

    I am immensely impressed with this ball head! It is an absolute joy to use I love the sleek look and the intelligence behind the design. I shoot on beaches quite often and the open ball design makes so much sense it is miles better than the competition. The only criticism I have to offer about this ballhead is that the main tightening of requires more force than I am used to in order to lock it down nice and snug. The panning function when you turn it upside down works excellent for leveling the ball head and doing panoramas. Another clamp is the only way to go its functions incredibly well and is so fast .... I absolutely love this ball head.

  3. GP Blallhead 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2015

    A well engineered ball head. Fairly light even though it has a good load carrying capacity. It has a nice feel to it and the tension knob provides nice smooth control of the camera/lens.
