Are you just mounting a camera to the tripod itself? - you need to purchase a head as well - the head screws onto the top of the tripod, and then the camera fixes to the head, usually with a qr plate.

SOURCE: Manfrotto Tripod Ball-grip Head 322RC2

If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.

In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.

Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.

Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.

You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.

IT SOME TIMES TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT TO SEPARTE THE HEAD FROM THE TRIPOD. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE 3 LITTLE SCREWS FROM BELOW THE HEAD, AND MAKE SURE THE TRIPOD AND HEAD ARE NOT COLD. IF THEYA RE WARM THEY WILL SEPARATE EASIER.

SOURCE: Removing Tripod head from center post on Manfrotto Modo 785B

I have the national geographic branded version. Here is how you remove the head.

(1) remove the center post from the tripod
(2) lock the ball head with the trigger lock
(3) grasp the body of the ball head with one hand and the center column with the other.
(4) turn counter clockwise.

If you're intending to replace the ballhead, be warned that the thread is non-standard. I have a new "plug" with a standard 1/4" thread made for free by the machinist at my job. I don't know how you would go about adapting it without such a capability.

What fluid do i need in my 3066 tripod


they don't use fluid - maybe some grease in the tilt and pan of the head, but the tripod itself doesn't need any.. you might need an adjustment somewhere... I own 3 of these.

Trouble opening legs of my manfrotto tripod


Manfrotto have great warranties. If it is new, send it to Manfrotto to repair/replace the parts and make it whole again. If parts are worn it will be hard to tell you how to fix it without pictures, or know which model tripod you have.

Bubble level for Manfrotto 475B


Not quite sure what you are hoping to achieve here - the bubble is to help you level the tripod, and by its very nature when centred will indicate this. Once you have levelled the tripod, adjust the head (pan and tilt, or ball and socket) until the camera is also level. It is possible to purchase a three-way level that fits in the hot shoe.

The tripod legs on my manfrotto 3433 slip. the clamping apparatus doesn't have enough grip and just the weight of my video camera is enough to make the legs start sliding down. I see an allen socket...


Hi toolroom347,

There are different clips on the tripod which allow you to adjust the settings for a firmer grip, you also need to extent the gap between the legs of the tripod for a firmer grip, this will help you to set the optimal settings for your tripod which will be fair enough to carry the weight of your camera.

Also a simple solution to stop this slip problem is to carry a small piece of cloth which has guide good grip or a rubber material and then place your camera on it , this will work excellent for a firmer grip.
This has definitely worked for me.

Hope this helps you as well...:)

There's a wiggle when I try to pan side to side (so there's always a slight **** in the video). This is a fairly new tripod (Manfrotto 7321yb), so not sure if it's a defect, or something that I need to...


The first thing that comes to mind with this issue is that this is not a real video tripod. This is a still tripod. With that said you might just want to try to make sure the pan/tilt locks are fully unlocked, then move the head back and fourth quickly (without the camera attached) for a few seconds to actually warm up the head.
Hope that helps!

Missing Tripod parts


Without knowing the brand of tripod i cannot help. There are some brands of tripods that are made for the retailer and the name is licensed, so the name brand does not support or stock repair parts. Especially if the tripod is an inexpensive one. Because of the model and make of you tripod, I would recommend you throw it out and buy another one. In my opinion Slik and Manfrotto are two very good ones. Slik for the lesser expensive and Manfrotto for the more durable, expensive, parts are almost always available unless is it really old tripod. Find some Manfrotto tripods at: www.BogenTripodParts.com
