Not only does it helps switch from portrait to landscape, it also makes it very easy to shoot overhead and below.

This rotation prevents collision with tripods like the Systematic, which have a larger spider. The smart rotating sprit level supports accurate framing on all axes. The spirit level can easily be repositioned to suit the camera’s position. The 3 Way Fluid Head was designed respecting Gitzo’s unmistakably elegant and clean style, which represents the industry’s standard for excellence.
