Our Ultimate GP ball head has all the benefits and features of our GP ball head, including the ability to function as a gimbal head (image #2/#3). It weighs only 1 lb (454g), and has a 2 3/8 (60mm) inch base diameter. What really distinguishes the Ultimate GP Ballhead from our other ballheads is that it is designed to also be used upside down, allowing the ball to be used as a leveling base for taking stitched panoramic images. Even when using your tripod on rocky, uneven terrain the Ultimate GP allows you to pan parallel to the horizon, eliminating the need to carry a separate leveling base to create accurate panoramic images.
