The MKC3-H01 Photo-Movie Kit is a Compact Series tripod with a built-in head designed for both taking photos and shooting video. The ''grip''-style head has a Photo/Movie switch on the side; when the Photo setting is selected, the head allows you to rotate the camera between landscape and portrait positions and then lock it in place before taking a photo.
In Movie setting, the camera is locked in landscape orientation but free to rotate left-right, so you can use the grip handle to move the camera smoothly when filming subjects in motion, or to take in wide views without losing horizontal level. The plate's universal mount fits all cameras' tripod thread (the screw thread on the underside).
Strong and secure enough to support anything from small point-and-shoots and compact camcorders up to entry-level DSLRs with kit lenses.
