What is the difference between Benro HD3A 3-Way and Benro HD2A 3-Way besides the load capacity?
Asked by: Carlos
Operationally the Benro HD2A and HD3A 3-Way Panheads are the same. The HD2A is slightly lighter weight, 1.7 pounds vs 2. Other than the weight, load capacity and price, there are no major differences.

question

If I wanted to point my camera straight up can this head accomplish that? Would I have to turn the camera a quick release plate around backwards?
Asked by: David
I use a Manfrotto 410 geared head which has the same limited up pointing constraint. I mount my telescope, which obviously needs to point way up, on it. To get around the up pointing constraint I mount the QR plate with the telescope pointing "backwards." When I connect the telescope to the mount I am using the downward pitch as my upward pitch. Since the Benro plates are Arca-Swiss comparable there is no front or back to them. To maintain 3-way operation I would mount the plate in line with the optical axis of the camera and mount the camera to the head with the lens pointing out over the pitch handle. That is going to require reaching around the head to got to that handle which will be a little awkward, but allows control of pitch, yaw, and roll which becomes limited if the camera is mounted "sideways" as suggested by Staff.
