Here are the most famous answers and questions listed
Why should the ball at CB-18 E / CB-24 E not be moved when the lock knob is only loosened minimally?
Both tripod heads does not have protective plastic sleeves which allow ball movement. The ball would be damaged (scratched). Therefore the ball should be released by a half turn at the locking handle so that you can move it freely.
Tip for anodized ball surface CB-24 E.
If squeaking noises can be heard by the movement of the ball, the ball surface should be oiled slightly.
Put some of the oil on a clean cloth and rub the surface of the ball. When the lock knob is open, it is tilted 90 ° into the slot and rotated.
Caution: All ball heads with the designation F use plastic shells for the friction function, and must never be oiled.
Can this small CB-24 FB tripod head hold a DSLR camera?
The applied force of the photographer on the ball-bearing adjustment handle actuates a spring-loaded tension ring in the tripod head housing. With low friction loss, this torque lands directly on the ball. Where other tripod heads fail, the power reserves of FLM now work and keep the camera safely in the set position without sagging. Selected bearing materials protect the ball surface against premature wear.
Why is there play at the 0° position?
The 0° position is the hole to lock the pan rotation. By pressing the stop button, this position can also be centered for accurate image composition.
Why is the movement of the leveling plate tightened?
The ball head is mounted on the leveling plate and is used to adjust the camera. This high weight with a long lever arm must be supported by the leveling plate more securely and without play. Therefore, the preset friction of the plate must correspond to the high load capacity and must not be movable easily by hand. Please check the smooth movement of the leveling plate with appropriate load.
Why does the plate PR-15 have a height of 43mm?
This height is required to accommodate the optional technique of friction, lock and click system and precise rotation.
Why should the selected clamping base be glued with the connection thread?
The clamping base, which is screwed only with the threaded pin, is securely and operatively connected to the tripod head, but has the disadvantage that the screw connection is released in the case of a left turn. In order to eliminate this annoying aspect, the thread pin in the plate and ball thread can be glued with any conventional metal adhesive.
Why is it difficult to remove the plate without mounting the camera?
To remove the plate, the clamping lever must be fully open and rest against the base. Without mounting on the tripod head and without camera, any lever arm is missing for the removal of the plate. Now a little trick helps. Push the safety knob inwards and at the same time to the protruding rotating mechanism with the long hole above the knob. The plate is released immediately.
Why does the SRB-60 base have a standard circular level and no HSA connection?
The SRB-60 base is suitable for mounting to the ball head head for leveling panoramic views. For reasons of space the installation of the HSA adapter would not be possible.
Is the stability of the small camera plate suitable to keep any DSLR camera safe?
The connection to the camera is through the ¼ "stainless steel screw. Most cameras have this thread and are additionally equipped with heavy lenses including a battery compartment. Thus the connection for a secure hold is guaranteed.
Why is the HSA system not included?
It can be chosen between two different systems. Not all photographers deal with panoramic photographs. Some cameras already have software for leveling.
Why only 8 kg load capacity at Level tripods?
The reduced load-capacity of 8kg happens when the center post is fully extended. This means that working with higher weights is not a problem with the center column at zero-position or when working without a center column.
Why are the aluminum grips at CP-26 travel equipped with rubber?
By a travel tripod, the light weight is very important. With 12 handles the overall weight could be greatly reduced by the use of rubber rings.
Why are spikes and rubber feet at CP-26 travel removable?
Spikes are forbidden in the hand luggage on air travel. The unscrewed feet reduce the pack size to 37cm.
Why a plastic bottle for CP-Loader?
The extra weight, especially for air travel, would be counterproductive to the light carbon tripod. Soft drinks are available worldwide as a returnable bottle. The light empty bottle can be refilled with water or sand on site.
Why do the tube segments not fall down automatically when the sand protection grips are mounted?
As you can see in the figure above, a felt ring surrounds the carbon tube and prevents self-sliding. Therefore, it is advantageous to use the sand protection handles as an option to be replaced after use.
