Is it Heisenberg's Uncertainty... Or is it Just the Observer Effect?

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle deals with what is measured in the sense that you can only really measure one aspect accurately.  His concern was position of the particle v. its momentum. If you want to know where it is, you cannot measure its speed accurately, and vice versa.  The measurements for one also become less precise the more you scrutinize the other. This is often conflated with another quantum phenomenon--the Observer Effect.
