A high precision tool like an ALPA Camera depends on perfect accessory. That is why we designed new modular tripod heads, the ALPA GON.
Do you know what a GON is? A lot of our customers sure do: Goniometry is the science of measuring things, most common when surveying objects for example in architectural photography. In this field, GON and not degree is the standard measure unit. As we are committed to the work of our customers, we sometimes refer to them when naming our products. There are the ALPAGON objectives and our tripod heads are simply called GON.
When we recently worked on the GON, we had two main goals: Make them more versatile and adapt them to our concept of modularity. In this particular case, the best way to achieve this was to split our existing Micro 3D levelling head into parts and add new technology. Our efforts result in a more satisfying solution for our customers. Now there is one product for each setting instead of one for all. Photographers are able to combine different GON into one tripod head that perfectly fits their subject.
