Luxury tripod manufacturer Gitzo has announced a major new addition to its range of heads. The Gitzo 3-way Fluid Head GHF3W replaces four existing pan/tilt heads in its range – and borrows engineering features that are found in sister brand's Manfrotto X-Pro 3-Way Head (one of the best pan-and-tilt heads available).

The GHF3W weighs 955g but its aluminum and magnesium construction is designed to support a camera rig weighing up to 13kg.
