(From company literature) SLIK The Professional Pan Head. Every bit as important as the legs is the tripod head. THE PROFESSIONAL Pan Head was designed to work in consort with super duty THE PROFESSIONAL and THE PROFESSIONAL 4 models.
The solidly constructed 3-way pan head has the features that uncompromising photographers are looking for. Large built-in camera platform to handle the mount bases on 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras. The head has dual axis bubble levels for easy accurate leveling of your camera. The bubble levels are recessed in the camera platform to protect against being damage. This head has both large (3/8") and standard (1/4-20") threaded camera mounting posts. When one is not in use, the post fits into a socket in the side of the head where it is out of the way yet always available.
THE PROFESSIONAL Pan Head is available in two sizes, the smaller (stock number 619-715) has the same features as the standard but it scaled to work with THE PROFESSIONAL-II and is included when that tripod is purchased complete. Both heads can be uses on a variety of heavy tripods from other manufacturers as well.
