The Acratech Panoramic Head is designed as a multi-row panoramic head and it also works well as a long lens head.
The large degree scale on the tilt axis and the adjustable zero pointer on the pan axis make multi-row panoramics very quick and easy.
The indexable quick release rotates in 90˚ degree increments so you can attach a camera body or a long lens with a tripod collar directly to the head.
Many photographers use the Panoramic Head with the levelling base, ‘L’ Bracket and Nodal Rail.
