Tilt head with indexed stops
« on: July 31, 2019, 01:11:16 pm »

Does anybody know of a tilt head that has indexed stops? I would like the tilt setting to be repeatable for when I'm doing multi-image stacking, panos, etc.

I don’t know of any with indexed “stops” but the Arca Swiss D4 geared head has markings that might fit the bill.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about using a regular pan head with markings, but I don't want to spend the time to re-align and it might be off a bit from my previous shots. I wonder if there are any with some kind of way to quickly return to an existing setting? Typically I would do something like a 2x1 vertical pano where I shoot the foreground and then tilt my camera up to get more sky and then return to the foreground.

I also have a full pano head (RRS PG-01) and I could put a nodal ninja indexed rotator on the vertical arm, but it would be a bit cumbersome and heavy to always carry around.
