Manfrotto 400 Heavy Duty Geared Head. This unique head offers precise geared movement in 3 directions. Fold away rotating handles for pan and tilt; and side to side levelling by a separated handle. In addition, the tension holding the round quick release plate can be released to allow fine adjustment with complete safety. Designed to mount on either studio column stands or larger tripods, this geared head for medium and large format cameras, provides the ultimate in fine adjustment and control to achieve the exact framing required. Three 1/4" screws for camera attachment included.
Manfrotto heads are separate from the tripod legs so that you can interchange them and pick the most suitable one for your purpose. The range of photo heads comprises Ball Heads (the fastest heads to adjust thanks to their single lock/unlock mechanism which releases the ball and socket joint to rotate on all axes); Three-Way Heads (characterised by the fact that the greater movement possible on each axis is separately controlled by individual locks for more secure support); Geared Heads (a Manfrotto invention designed primarily for studio use and offering millimeter-precise framing, ultra-safe support with greater load capacity); "Pan-And-Tilt" or Two-Way Heads (a crossover from the video sector, popular with users of long heavy lenses and sport optics.
