To achieve proper balance, the head includes a sliding camera plate with 1.6" of fore/aft adjustment. The screw and locating pin are moveable to orient the plate on the camera to achieve the best possible balance. Once the camera is balanced, the continuous counterbalance and pan/tilt drag controls provide a smooth action with reduced backlash and unnecessary "bouncing."
Included with the head is a PH-6B pan handle. The handle is extendable for better reach or more precise movement. The bar can be placed on the right or left side of the head by screwing it onto one of the rosettes.
