Our take on the Velbon PHD-52Q Pan Head by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Velbon's compact, lightweight PHD-52Q pan head works with Velbon monopods and tripods. It lets you quickly and easily pan and tilt your digital camera or camcorder to almost any position using dual grip handles. Use the three-axis bubble level on the pan head to make sure your shots are precisely lined up. You can also thread the quick-release plate into the tripod socket of your camera and leave it in place. That way, you can quickly attach and detach your camera from the tripod, saving you those crucial few seconds when you're trying to capture a fleeting shot.
