Just press hard on the bubble with your finger to turn the bubble light on. You may have to do it a couple of times. It goes off by itself after a short time.

I am looking for advice on how to mount a Ball Head on the plate of a regular tripod, So far I have not found a Ball Head that has the same size thread in the bottom. Is an adapter available as a solution....


The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"

It is constantly loose will turn easily without depressing the handle! Ive had it for a few years now and it started doing it this year. I use it with a tripod mounted Leica Spotting scope and it has been...


The normal tightness adjustment is black and on both sides of the handle. There is a plus and minus sign above it on the left side of the grip to show how to get more and less tightness.

There is a SECOND adjustment that I just found on the back side of the handle (opposite side from the gray grip on the front). This one requires a very small allen wrench to tighten (clockwise). I assume that this one was designed as the rough adjustment and the upper one is supposed to be for fine tuning during a photo shoot or normal use.

Either way, I'm glad I don't have to replace my tripod head. She's been halfway across the world with me!

How to remove pan head from velbon 530, it feels very tight


I have the Hakuba HG-503MX which came with basically the same pan head you have already attached to the center column. First remove the center column from the tripod, with the pan head attached. Tighten the knob that prevents the pan head unit from rotating 360 degrees on the center column and gripping the head with one a hand and the center column near the plastic plate firmly twisting the head counter clockwise. The pan head will unscrew from the plastic plate which sits on top of the center column, given enough force. My pan head was also very tightly screwed onto the shaft, since it came already attached to the tripod. Hope this is helpful.
