Visual Echoes Panning Plate

  1. Does anyone have experience with the "Visual Echoes Panning Plate?" I'd like to hear your experiences before I consider buying it. Thanks in advance.
  2. OK, here goes since no one else has responded - I can only speak to one use - shooting with a long, heavy lens from safari vehicles. Properly supported on a bean bag over the roof rails, it allows easy, fluid movement almost as good as a Wimberley head (which would be impossible in this environment). I would not be without it - and other photographers have wanted to buy it from me on the spot.
  3. Thanks Curt. I saw it advertised for bird-on-the-ground/water photography, but didn't think it would work well for that use. I'll keep it in mind for Safari use.
  4. I can see how it work work well in certain situations on the ground, but I would think you would want a right-angle finder because it would be so low. I will try it on the ground for a hippo-in-the-lily-pond shot if conditions are right.
