Giottos 3 Way Double Lock Tripod Pan Head MH5011 is the versatile, dependable way to get a full range of motion out of your digital camera or camcorder. This Giottos tripod accessory allows you to experience independent, 3-axis pan, tilt, and rotation from the stable mounting platform of your tripod. Compatible with most Giottos tripods, the pan head gives you fluid 360° rotation with tough, easy-locking handles. When you find a good position to take a photo from, activate the anti-twist pan lock to securely hold the tripod accessory in place. The Giottos 3-Way Panheads feature a 1/4" camera mounting thread with a 3/8" bushing, enabling you to use almost any digital camera or camcorder with the panning head. Giottos has included the Giottos MH620 Quick Release Plate with these panheads, enabling you to swap out the device on your tripod at a moment's notice. What's more, your device is in good hands when it's mounted to the Three Way Panhead, since the double safety catch prevents accidental release of your camera from the mechanism. To liberate your camera in three dimensions, mount it on a Giottos Quick Release Tripod Pan Head.
