The Induro PHT2 3-Way Panhead is a uniquely designed head for DSLR and medium-format cameras with three separate controls for pan and two directions of tilt. The two tilt handles are bulky to enable quick access and confident control, and they fold down to reduce the PHT2 head's profile for easy transport.
The magnesium-alloy panhead includes a snap-in quick-release plate with a 1/4"-20 screw, for simple and rapid changes in camera setup. A dual-locking mechanism ensures that an inadvertent action will not free the camera from the head, which supports loads up to 26.5 lb. This high capacity allows the PHT2 to support the heaviest of zoom lenses and virtually unlimited camera accessories.
Twisting the front-to-back tilt knob frees the head to be tilted -45 to +90°, and twisting the other tilt knob allows you to tilt the head -25° to one side and a full +90° to the other side, for portrait orientation. An integrated bubble level tells you whether or not your framing hews to the horizon.
