    Convenient Adjustments and Pan Handle

    Counterbalance can be easily adjusted by the large knob on the head’s left side. That same knob can be pulled it out, making room on the base to fit wider cameras. The fluid head’s controls are all on the left side, allowing for easy one-handed operation even while using the pan handle.

    Using the quick release sliding plate, your camera can be attached and positioned quickly, while the sturdy side lock keeps it secure in place, preventing it from sliding off when you move your tripod.
