When I want to pan, I pivot the whole monopod. The tilt head takes care of vertical motion, and the monopod leg units are adjusted for the proper height. That being said, I tend to use the monopod for long telephoto nest stake-outs, 180mm macro lens near macro and 1:1 work, and occasionally for low light situations where additional stabilization is needed but there isn't room for a tripod.
