Can't figure out how to straighten and level the camera

Once I put the camera on the tripod, I cannot figure out how to control the angle (heighth) of the shot - it seems there should be a screw to tighten, but I cannot locate it. I am afraid I have lost a part. I do not use it a lot, and cannot find the instructions. Any ideas?

    Thank you very much - I have the handle for the lateral movement, but it has to be a missing wing nut or handle for the up and down angle b/c there is an open hole that looks as though there should be a screw in it. I appreciate your help!

If your tripod has extendable legs, at each juncture there is a sleeve nut and an "O" ring. One end of one of the legs looks like a drill bit chuck - a short length that is split in three places and tapered to fit into the nut. you extend the leg, then tighten against the taper to lock the leg. the center stem whether it is geared or just friction had a 1/4-20 or 5/15-18 thread with a right angled screw or wing nut. It may even be metric. If you don't have the wing nut, a standard bolt will work.

If you have lost a srew or wing nut, it will be loose where there should be one. set it up and then try to raise or move it around in one spot. iof it moves than look for a screw hole. the handle itself sets the rotation try unloosing the handle..

How adjust the vertical viewing


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.

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.

Sunpak 5800d tripod quick release plate. What is the correct position to mount it on the camera and the tripod? Also what is the push button on the plate and how is it used? Thank you


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)
