Still in use somewhere, the innovative Vinten Mk 3 Pan & Tilt head used risers and cams only (no fluids) to maintain the centre of gravity. This made the tilting of heavy cameras relatively easy. Indeed, if correctly mounted, a camera could be left at any tilt angle without lock off. Our picture shows designer Bill Vinten inspecting an example of his invention.
