Create beautiful panoramic images with the Acratech Panoramic Head with Leveling Base Kit from B&H while having up to a 600mm lens perfectly balanced. The setup gives you the ability to precisely move a camera and lens incrementally and create a stitched panoramic image.
The Acratech Panoramic Head is designed to facilitate precise panoramic photography with DSLR cameras and lenses as long as 600mm f/4.0. With laser-etched degree markers on both the pan and tilt dimensions, the Panoramic Head is suitable for multi-row stitched imagery, facilitating the broadest views possible. The head has separate controls for pan and tilt, and there's also fully adjustable tension control.
Sturdy construction is a hallmark of the Panoramic Head – it's based on Acratech's Long Lens Head so heavy lenses will be well served. The head is composed of CNC-machined aluminum, which is anodized for a black-satin finish. Hardware is made of long-lasting stainless steel, and all knobs are secured so that they can't vibrate loose and fall off.
Use your existing Arca-type camera plate – the quick release clamp features a classic knob clamp and is compatible with plates from several manufacturers (plate sold separately). The clamp is not removable but is indexable, and it locks in at 90° increments.
The Acratech Leveling Base is a leveling base that fits between the tripod (or stand) and the tripod head, and can be used with any tripod that features a 3/8" head screw. This device allows for the photo or video head to be quickly leveled, independently from the tripod.
At its center is an oilless and greaseless ball that will not attract or hold dirt and debris. It allows 10° movement in any direction, and features smooth knob action for easy and secure positioning.
