The VR sliding plate can locate the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation. This L type sliding plate allows the camera to be rotated on both horizontal andvertical axes, so panoramic photo sequences can be easily taken.
The sliding plate is supplied with 1/4" and 3/8" camera screws. Position the camera on the tripod head so it is centered both horizontally and vertically.

Works as good if not better, than the more costly competing companies with famous names. The only thing I do not like is you have to use the MH-558 series quick releases, which if you have other Gittos quick release plate are not interchangeable. You have to different quick release heads, then 2 tripods etc.
Very reasonable setup for quick switch from landscape to portrait mode. "L" bracket is quite large and looks a little cumbersome but works great at about 1/2 the price of other quick change brackets.
