Without knowing the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera, I can only be general/
The camera may be too heavy for the tripod head. Heads are rated to hold so much weight. If the camera/lens combo is too heavy for the head. it will tip forward. Many department store grade tripods can handle only light cameras.
The locking mechanism may be damaged/broken.
If you need more info, please repost the question, specifying the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera. If it takes interchangeable lenses, also include the make and model of the lens.
The tripod will certainly hold your Canon camera and lens. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.
Yes. Of course, the lens isn't an autofocus lens so you'll have to focus manually. Also, the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, so you'll have to shoot in the manual exposure mode without any assistance from the camera's exposure meter. You can review photos and use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure.
You're probably going to want to use a tripod to hold the camera steady. The lens is long enough, magnifying even the slightest camera movement, and heavy enough that it's almost impossible to hand hold.
Go to this site and look at the plate mounted onto the tripod, do it that way, so the bubble level is on your side, and the second little push button opposite of you. The second button is there for larger cameras, many video cameras mostly, that have two holes on the bottom, to keep them from swiveling side to side on the plate. Also, makes it easy to ensure you put it on right in the dark, the extra button should go toward the lens. :o)
Is this battery grip a Canon or aftermarket accessory? Have you mounted the camera to a tripod if so what lens do you have on the camera? Are you using the adapter for the use of AA's or are you using the LP-E8 battery pack? Are you using the camera in portrait position or landscape?
Here is why Canon has had in the past some problems with battery grips but I thought it was a solved issue maybe not on the entry level DSLR's. What happens is there is enough flex between the body and the grip to break connection and yes it seizes up. Most Rebels will have a plastic lens mounting flange which will also flex with the weight of a lens (longer focal lengths). Also with the longer focal length lens it has more a tendency to flex the battery grip if mounted on a tripod. Holding in the portrait position the weight of the camera is actually pulling away from the contacts so there is a whole series of little possibilities. If it's a Canon accessory then it's a warranty thing if it's aftermarket Humm not sure should have something on it but, the quick fix is to keep tightening the mounting screw/wheel. I know that wasn't the fix you wanted but hey just telling the way it is.
