Panning is easy. Simply release the side lock and the camera platform can pan 360° left or right. The side lock can be tightened to increase tension for fluid smooth panning. The 2" x 1.5" quick release plate features a non-slip rubber insert along with spring pin and screw locks for maximum camera safety. A bubble level is built-in for perfectly level compositions.
