Head rentals

Considerations when renting or leasing a head
Whether you are a photographer or a videographer, you need to make sure you have the right tripod heads as a part of your gear. When you are choosing a head, make sure you think about the scope and type of your project and choose the one that works for your needs. Also, make sure that it will work with your current tripod. Most of the heads are universal, but it's always a good idea to double-check.

Features of heads

There are many different types of heads used for different purposes. A ballhead utilizes a ball and socket to help control the orientation of the camera. It is possible to lock the ball into place so the camera doesn't move. A pan head will allow for tilting and panning. A geared head, which is similar to the pan and tilt, uses gears on each of the axes. Panoramic heads are great for photographers who want to take multiple shots and then stitch them together to create panoramic shots. Gimbal heads are ideal for photographers who use large and heavy telephoto lenses for shooting sports and wildlife in most cases. When it comes to video and film, fluid heads are a great choice. They provide smooth movement, which is essential when shooting any type of video.

How heads work

The tripod heads work very simply. You will be able to attach the heads to your tripod, and then attach the camera. The different types of heads, discussed below, will allow the users to move their camera in different ways, which can help them when shooting or filming to get the shots that they need.

About heads

A tripod head is the part of a tripod that actually attaches the camera, or other device, to the legs of the tripod. The head will also allow for the camera to be moved while on the tripod, or locked down when the photographer or videographer wants the camera to remain stationary. There are a number of different types of heads available for tripods today, some of which are modular and some of which are standalone.
