              I wonder how good the pan and tilt is.

                When I started researching the world of flash photography I remember being taken in by the oft mentioned "voice activated lightstand".

                So: Here we have a voice activated tripod. They come in different sizes. The larger ones collapse occasionally.
                Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

                  A poke in the ribs should get a pretty smart tilt & if a guy is with his wife, "some tonight?" might give a fast pan (several times left & right).

                    Yeah, but think of the running costs.

                          Personally speaking I think it's head and shoulders above Canon's previous versions.
