The Photo Clam Orion Tilt Head is a gimbal-style head for supporting cameras with long telephoto lenses. Mounting a heavy lens on a gimbal head at its center of gravity enables easy manipulation of its position in every dimension, to capture birds in flight and other faraway, fast-moving subjects.

The lightweight (3.1 lb) Orion Tilt Head has a built-in Arca-Swiss-style quick-release clamp for attaching a dovetail (sold separately).
