Giottos Lever Lock Tripod Pan Head MH-5000 is a versatile head for your tripod that will have your digital camera pointing in every direction with nothing more than the turn of a lever. These efficient tripod accessories have a fluid 3-way panning motion that allows them to independently swivel, rotate, tilt, and pan up to 360°, giving you a virtually unlimited range of motion. Unlike the other pan heads by Giottos, this particular head features lever locks instead of double locks, giving you one-handed control of almost every aspect of your tripod (ALL aspects of your tripod, if you're using a Giottos tripod with the flip lock system). The Giottos 3-Way Panhead features two patented camera mounting and removal tools that make swapping out digital cameras a snap, though they don't get the job done as fast as Giottos' quick release plates. A double safety catch prevents your camera from slipping off the Giottos tripod accessory, even when the camera's held at extreme angles. And with a 1/4" thread and 3/8" bushing, almost any camera can be mounted to the pan head. For a freely-rotating, easy to install pan-head for your tripod, make it a Giottos 3-Way Lever Lock Pan Head.
