I got the 2 way pan head on my Alta + 264 AO tri pod. I love it, i like the one handed operation. To be able to control the tilt and swivel and lock with one hand while adjusting the focuse of my spotting scope with the other. Works great for me.

I bought this a few weeks ago and so far it is awsome. It holds my 80mm spotting scope real stable. And has extra leg length for using my camera on and is light enought to carry and it is easy enought to take apart for packing for travel.I am thrilled with it so far. It is a good all round tri pod.

I don't like ball head tripods, and have been looking for this kind of head for a long time. We got it for my son,and although I have a couple of video tripods, Iam thinking about getting one of tthese for myself because I find this system to be very intuitive to use for still photos.

I use this with my Canon 7D Mark II. Incredible Tripod for taking pictures. For videos I find the Panhead not fluid enough for moving around while recording videos. If you plan on keepin gin fixed position, it is a great Tripod.

This tripod is great for Optics such as Spotting Scopes and Binoculars. The Panhead move smoothly to allow searching. It is light weight and easy to expande the legs. If you want a tripod for Photography get a different panhead with the 264 series.

The tripod itself is sturdy and decently designed. The problem relates to the panhead. The worst possible idea they could have was put the tension lock for both the tilt and pan on the same knob. This prevents you from locking only one axis at a time for any normal pan shots.
