Tango II Head

The Tango II swing head allows rotation around the lens axis. Unlike traditional Dutch tilt heads, the Tango II keeps the camera in place while rolling the tilt axis.  The smooth motion is silent across the 90-degree range. This makes it ideal both for productions wanting to incorporate rolls, as well as productions wanting to quickly switch camera orientation from horizontal to vertical.

The Tango II is compatible with Satchtler Touch & Go plates.  It is designed to be mounted on a traditional tripod head, and is rated for cameras up to 110 pounds.
