Bogen 303 Plus VR Head w/QRP
Includes vertical camera mount
The Manfrotto 303PLUS QTVR Geared Panoramic Head Kit is the same as the 303 kit, but incorporates precise geared movement of the two sliding plates used to locate the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation, adding greater accuracy to nodal point positioning. The plates are also longer than those of the 303 head, which helps to make this head suitable for use with larger traditional or digital SLR cameras equipped with standard or wide angle lenses, or for medium format cameras.
The 303PLUS pan head permits the photographer to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis with his or her camera either in portrait or landscape position, and with the nodal point of the camera/lens in line with the center of rotation to ensure that parallax effects do not cause problems during image stitching.
