: I couldn't find "Dutch tilt" or "angle" in a filmmaker's dictionary or regional slang dictionaries.

Hmmm. Something lacking in your filmmaker's dictionary, I fear. Many tripod manufacturers (Sachtler, Cartoni, O'Connor) even market "Dutch heads" these days.

Does your filmmaker's dictionary say anything about French Flags? That's another one that has always puzzled me. Who's the publisher of the dictionary? I didn't know there was such a thing, apart from the venerable Focal Press Encyclopaedia of Photography.

Thanks for taking the trouble to look it up and reply.
