How do I keep the button down when screwing the camera on


I suspect that this is the tiny locating button that sits beside the screw on the tripod.

Check your manual to find out how to remove the quick release sled. There is usually a small lever that needs to be rotated out of position and the sled lifts out.

Once you have the sled out, turn it over and you should see a small flap of metal that can be folded up and this is the means by which you screw the threaded part into your camera. Once it is tight, flip down the metal flap and then refit the sled to the tripod , taking care to rotate the lever again.

Some tripod levers remain locked while the sled is removed and they slip back into place when it is replaced in the tripod head.

Hope this helps.

Legs Locks Loose


Ross
-It is possible that you are overloading the tripod, thus causing this problem (check specs on tripod model)
HOWEVER IF YOU AREN'T....Giotto uses (2) different leg lock designs..., quick release (normally adjusted by a socket wrench) or rotary (screw locks)!
- If tripod uses screw locks, sometimes foreign material gets into the mechanism and either damages it or prohibits from tightening!!!!!
Note: rotary locks are easy to maintain & if you need parts..., they are user replaceable and usually inexpensive! (contact Giottos distributor in the country you live in)!!!
BUT FIRST!!!! (often problem is caused by dirty lock mechanism)
-carefully unscrew the leg lock (that is slipping) until it separates from the leg higher leg section & carefully pull out the lower tube (at the top of the lower tube will be 'shims' that are part of the lock mechanism).
-Look closely at existing 'shims' do they show signs of cracking, of a build up of dirt, etc. (if damaged they will need to be replaced)
-if shims are undamaged..., use rubbing alcohol & a clean cloth to clean shims and both the tube they sit on and the inside of the tube they slide into.
-once both sides of the tubes and both male & female threads of the locking mechanism are cleaned..., place a light coating of a light oil into the threads (sewing machine oil, bike chain oil, etc)...., do not get oil on the shims!!!!!
-replace locking shims back into position and carefully slide leg tube back into place..., then screw locking collar on (this should not take any force..., if while threading lock collar back on..., it seems tight..., back off collar and check positioning of shims). Repeat procedure!!!
TEST RESULTS!!!
Note: in most cases with rotary locks, problem is purely a maintenance issue, cleaning usually fixes the issue!!!

How do I unlock the memory card? There's only one switch in there and that is the switch that holds the battery in place.


Look at the memory card itself. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

How do I take my ball & head from the normal position to the center position inside the tripod legs? I want to use it for close up macro shots.


I was unable to find a picture of this tripod and head arrangement so on experience only I'll suggest how to do this. All of my Manfrotto tripods whether round tube or octagonal center post design work the same way. At the the bottom of the center post is a cap, it might be a rubber plug, twist lock type with a hook, or a rectangular stopper. Which ever this plug/cap can come out will a little effort. It's there to prevent the user from inadvertently pulling the center post out while extending to maximum height. You need to loosed the tension scree/lock off loose but not necessary to remove the screw. Then remove the center post by pulling it right out of the tripod housing. Now invert the post and reinstall it from the bottom side up, the tricky part is to realign the friction/tension lock and sometimes I use a pen/pencil to hold it over to the side while I insert the center post. once in place tighten the friction lock. The draw back I had at first was using the camera upside down. I've since solved that problem with a C type bracket. Hope this helps

I HAVE THE TSA COMBINATION LOCK ON A SAMSONITE GRAVITON G LUX


I can't answer the problem - but am interested as we had an identical failure on holiday in South Africa. We had to force the case open as the lock and the mechanism seemed to have come adrift in that when moving the lever with the correct combination - the case neither opened or closed. I'm sending it back to Samsonite under warranty to hopefully get it repaired/replaced. I rang the UK number listed on the Samsonite website. Bit disappointed as Samsonite should be more reliable - particularly given the price of the case, at £295, isn't exactly cheap.

One Leg has loss it's grip.


take it apart, there is a rubber ring like a belt or rubber band, either broken or missing. you will have to find a relacement for that, may have to take apart another leg to have one to compare, course I don't honestly know where you will find that piece. too take it apart just keep spinning the lock counterclockwise until it comes off. good luck.
