Question about Manfrotto (Distributed by Bogen) 055XPROB Black Tripod Kit with 322RC2 Grip Action Ball Quick Releas

1 Answer

Tripod & Head attachment

I purchased a Manfrotto Tripod 525 MVB recently and a Manfrotto 501 HDV Video head and both arrived in seperate boxes. The problem however is that there is no way of attaching the head to the tripod. Apparently there is a "leveler colum missing". Is this missing from the tripod box or the head box as I cannot get a satisfactory answer from the individual I purchased it from, or is it sold as a seperate item? Where are they available from and how much do they cost? The two parts are not much good when they cannot be married together. Can you advise please

Hi, I have a Manfrotto 525 MVB tripod and I am trying to connect my Canon EW-78E to it but I am not sure how to? Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully you can help. Laura.

Sorry your question doesn't make scents the Canon EW-78E is a lens hood and the Manfrotto 525 MVB is a Pro lightweight video tripod there is no way to mount then together.

I'm trying to attach a Canon EOS Rebel XS to a Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod, but the tripod socket on the camera is too small. How do I attach them?

You need a head. The tripod has a standardized screw for accepting a tripod head, which is a larger screw than for the tripod mount on the camera. There are a variety of heads available, ball heads, three-axis heads, geared heads, pan-and-tilt heads, and more.

Attaching head to tripod

video cameras come with a 1/4-20 threaded socket in the.  Make sure the 3066 has this size screw projecting form the place where the camer is attached.  The two Manfrotto should be compatible
The only time fitting together becomes a problem is if you are into the heavy duty professional equipment.
We especially like the Manfrotto fluid heads and have several in our facility.
