Fusing the smooth precision of a ball head with impressive and unmatched ergonomic control, the Vanguard ALTA GH-100 enables you to position your camera or spotting scope quickly with unmatched versatility. This pistol grip ball head is made with advanced materials and production processes to ensure that your gear stays in place and to offer ultra-smooth movements for perfect positioning. Our innovative Ball Release System enables you to unlock, reposition, and lock gear into place with the ease of only 1 finger. Keeping accurate, succinct control of the grip head has never been easier. You get a well-made and extremely comfortable product that enables one-handed, convenient operation, which frees your other hand to make any necessary lens adjustments. Simply pressing the handle allows 360 degrees of panning movement, -32 to +90 degrees of side-to-side tilt, and -8 to +90-degree back-to-front tilt movement all around. It instantly locks into place with the simple release of the handle.

Other impressive features include our Friction Control System, which allows you to modify the level of friction on the ball to accommodate changing equipment weight (such as switching to heavier lenses, adding light sources, etc.). The anodized center ball allows for extremely fluid movement without sacrificing the precise control you need. ALTA GH-100 ensures the safety of your expensive equipment with a dual-locking quick shoe mechanism, which prevents accidental release. It lets you attach and detach your gear quickly and efficiently with the Arca-compatible QS-60 V2 plate. Other notable features include a 72-click-point panorama, offering a wide range of rotation with precise positioning that moves the camera 5 degrees per click -- this prevents jumps in shots to help ensure a perfect 360-degree panoramic image. ALTA GH-100 provides impressive versatility in positioning with 360-degree horizontal movement and a 90-degree tilt.
