The Manfrotto Virtual Reality & Pan Pro Head is an advanced panoramic photography head that's built around the versatile 300N panoramic rotation unit, with sliding plates for nodal point positioning. An elbow bracket allows the camera to be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation.
Precise geared movements of the two sliding plates are used to locate the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation, adding greater accuracy to nodal point positioning. The micro-positioning plates provide extremely precise fingertip adjustment using a gear-drive system. A release button disengages the gear drive for more rapid movement of the plates when it's needed. 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.
