This is an affordable fluid head that is capable of pans tilts and any of the basic maneuvers. The handle is removable and reversible even though there are screws into only one side of the head. It is made out of high-quality materials that are strong and durable so it will last for a long time. It has clamps that have spring loaded heads which work great when you are in a tight situation. It will give you control and many angles to your pictures. It is small, compact so it can be easily carried in your purse, camera bag or backpack so you will have access to it when and where you need it. You can also use it in a variety of tripods. This is a great product that works well and I would highly recommend it. Great price and it would make a great gift.
