The Gitzo panoramic disc offers pan rotation for a multitude of uses in various industries. It can be mounted to virtually any device thanks to an Arca Swiss quick release clamp on top and an adaptible 1/4" or 3/8" screw below. It also has two spirit level bubbles to ensure perfect leveling.
Surveying and Engineering
The most popular use of the panning clamp is for mounting of 3D scanners as a base that offers independent panning rotation from the scanner's own motor in order to set a starting point or preview of the scanning range.
Sport Optics and Shooting
It can also be used to offer independent panning rotation to scopes or rilfes in sport shooting, but should ideally still be paired with a leveling base like the RRS TA-3 or SIRUI RX-75B to offer vertical movement.
It has few uses in photography as all tripod heads offer pan rotation, but it can be mounted under or above a tripod head to offer independent pan rotation.
