    Camera/camcorder tripod what's the difference between 2 way and 3 way head?

    Looking into getting my first basic tripod and was wondering what the difference between 2 way head and 3 way head is.
    Anyone?

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

    From wiki:

It is more accurate than a ball-head but slower to use.
