The second bit of the title made me think not about cameras :oops:

From wiki:

2-Way Head

A 2-way head moves on 2 axis; this design is older but is still often used in sports photography or by others using long, heavy lenses.


3-Way Head

A 3-way head moves on 3 axis, allowing the camera to be placed in just about any position relative to the tripod. It is more accurate than a ball-head but slower to use.

so i could move the camera horizontally or vertically with a 2 way, or put it at a tilt as well with a 3 way? is this right?
