Pan-Tilt Heads

Hands-on Review

Tripods, monopods and their accompanying heads provide the support necessary to hold a camera or other optical device in a stable position. This basic principle is easily achievable, however, variances to this simple principle are what set different tripods, monopods and heads apart.

Hands-on Review

A tripod, in the most simplistic of terms, is a self-contained camera support system. These support systems are often necessary and always helpful for providing a stable place upon which your camera can sit. The main drawback to using a tripod is carrying it; it creates extra weight and takes up more space in your setup.

Tips and Solutions

There’s something about the shape or aspect ratio of panoramic photographs that always makes you slow down for a closer look. Most of the pictures we view on a regular basis in print or online are invariably horizontal, in 3:2 or 4:3 rectangular aspect ratios, which can be visually digested with a quick pass or two of our eyes.

Hands-on Review

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.
