With 13, 23 and 42mm high quick release plates. Designed especially for large and medium format cameras, the 400 offer the ultimate in precision 3-way geared adjustment and control. Self-locking foldaway cranks allow 360 degrees pans, +30 degrees and -90 degrees of frontal tilt & +/- 7.5° of lateral tilt. The bubble level aids in precise positioning. The three different height of quick release plates eliminates the nuisance of interference of camera standards, which is critical for use of fast wideangle lenses.

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.
