For some photographers, any tripod head will do. And while this may hold true for many photographers, others eventually get to a point at which the subject matter they're pursuing—and sometimes where they're pursuing their subjects—starts revealing the limitations of the pan or ball head they've been using until that time. If this sounds familiar, you might want to look into Induro's PHQ-series 5-Way Panheads.

Come April showers, street sweepers will clean better, umbrella salesmen will clean up, and outdoor photographers will fret. That's when attaching a specialized umbrella to the tripod socket of your camera can be as vital as doing what your mother always said: if it's going to rain, take an umbrella!

Photographing buildings or interiors in tight quarters can be unnerving, as any architectural photographer can tell you. In urban surroundings, there's usually a limit to how far you can back up before you bump into a wall or step dangerously into oncoming traffic.
