Vanguard 3-WAY PAN HEAD

 

Vanguard has a new 3-way pan-head, available in 2 sizes, that allows the second handle (tilt handle) to be moved to four 90-degree settings around the horizontal with the simple press of a button. This allows the two handles to be placed alongside each other for two-handed control while in video mode, or simply to make sure the second handle doesn’t get in the way.


The new head can also be set up for a left-handed photographer to use the 3-way pan-head as it's designed to be used, or into the position that is right for the shot in front of the photographer. The new heads also include a telescopic pan-handle and an Arca Swiss quick release system.

"As the video capability on mirrorless and DSLR cameras improves, Vanguard has recognised that more and more photographers are now using their camera for shooting video, as well as stills," says Vanguard. 

Two sizes are available, one for smaller/travel tripods and the other for more traditional tripods:

  • VEO 2 PH-36 (RRP £60) – Designed for smaller/travel tripods, this head weighs 475g with a maximum load capacity of 3kg and a 42mm base diameter
  • VEO 2 PH-38 (RRP £80) - Designed for more traditional tripods, this head weighs 620g with a maximum load capacity of 6kg and a 58mm base diameter
