GPSS Ballhead

0.85 LBS
Ships within 24 hours with the exception of weekends.
Calculated at checkout

Product Description

A smaller version of our GP Ballhead, but it maintains the 25 lb. (11.4 kg) capacity, and the ability to function as a ballhead, gimbal head, and a panorama head. The GPSS has a shorter quick release clamp, and a smaller base diameter than the GP. It 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 our Arca Swiss style, knob or locking lever quick release clamp.

Camera quick release plates sold separately.  Find your camera plate.

  1. Light, high quality and effective 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2017

    I was looking for a light, high quality ballhead to go on a carbon fiber tripod, with the idea of having a lightweight system for hiking. I initially purchased the Ultimate Ballhead about 10 years ago, and ended up purchasing a GP Ballhead, and recently acquired a GPSS Ballhead to use on several different tripods. They are light, high quality and effective. I have used them on a Canon 5DM#, Canon 1Dx, Canon 6D, Nikon D810A, and Nikon 750, all very successfully. I do some teaching and keep more than one one tripod-bullhead setup with me when on the road. I frequently loan these out to others when their setup is ineffective, making our photo sessions go smoother. No reservations recommending this bullhead.

  2. Lever release ballhead 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2017

    I was searching for a small, portable, but sturdy ballhead that could work for my Nikon d810 and my Olympus OMD EM1, mark ii. This ballhead has excellent mobility and it is sturdy. I chose the lever release since that is what I have been used to with other ballheads. I am a little bit frustrated because on the lever release, the level is underneath where you would attach your camera. I usually set my shot up first and then level from there. This level is worthless. Of course, you could purchase a separate level from Acratech for more money, but that is ridiculous. Also, I think the camera plate should come with the ballhead. Plates have been included with other ballheads I have used.

  3. Great Quality 5 Star Review
