The Visual Echoes Panning Plate provides smooth panning action while keeping your photo or video camera low to the ground. The plate is also useful for setting on bean bags or resting on flat surfaces. The rotating mount features Teflon bearings, allowing you to pan with moving subjects without the need of an additional tripod head. Fitted with an Arca-Swiss style clamp, the Panning Plate is ready to accept any Arca-Swiss mounting plate. The low profile design makes the plate easy to pack and ready for travel. Please note: An Arca-Swiss plate, sold separately, is required to mount your camera to the Panning Plate.
