Gives independent pan control to ballheads that don't have it, so you can move solely the left-right axis without affecting the orientation of the ball itself. Has a built-in bubble level. Great for use with Magic Ball & Mini Magic Ball. Comes with a standard Euro 3/8"-16 hole in the bottom but also has a reducer bushing to convert it to the smaller 1/4"-20 thread size.

          Comments about Novoflex Universal Panorama Plate:

          This gadget may be used in panoramas, but you must do all the calculation on how many degrees to shift for each shot. It has no marks for different lenses as a true panorama head. I have a pair of such plates which I mount on the horizontal supports of a Manfrotto 131DDB Tripod Accessory Arm for Four Heads. On the vertical bases at the end of that arm I mount light ball heads. The arm is mounted on a Manfrotto 400 Deluxe Geared Head. So I can have 4 cameras ready for shooting in different conditions. The 2 central can be fitted with the similar lenses to capture stereo stills or video. I can also have 4 prime lenses in 4 different bodies with almost the same flexibility as with a zoom but with better quality. Another very welcome use is to make long exposures shots, as I can shoot continuously without needing to wait for the digital camera to refresh. The small and light panorama plate is unique for this purpose.

            The only problem is the price of this device. It is basic, the camera must be positioned manualy, there is no click stops. For this price we should get more control, at least geared panning, which would be great.

            I use the product every photographic day for all tripod work including telephoto and 180 mm macro lens. Same incomparable quality as other Novoflex products. This pan is compact and light weight but never flimsy in use. It operates smoothly and precisely just like a fine European automobile. I will buy this product every time that another one is needed. It is good enough!

              I use this for panorama picture. This is good design, easy to use, compact to carry. The plate is very smooth to move. Eve though there are more professinal tool for panorama picture, those are more expensive and too big for me. This panopama plate fits my use.
