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.

Whilst trying toromove the 168 ball head from my manfrotto art055 tripod the head became loose on the central column. How can I fix it back


There is a video at: http://bogentripodparts.com/repairs.htm
the one on the right shows you. It is usually remove the 3 screws and a little force to unscrew the head.

How should fluid heads be stored?


Alisa: With all 'video tripod heads'...., regardless if the are the original 'true' fluid heads (that actually used a liquid (oil) to achieve 'fluid' type movements) or a modern professional 'fluid' head (that actually uses a clutch mechanism like a cars transmission) or a fluid effect head like the Manfrotto #501HDV (which used nylon discs sandwiching a ball bearing race)...., always store with the pan and tilt mechanisms unlocked!!!! This means the camera platform should be positioned in the 'rest' position (not tilted forward or backwards), also ensure that any counterbalance mechanism is released so as to eliminate strain on the internal mechanisms!!!!
If you remember to do this and don't overload the head..., you will extend the life of your gear significantly

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!

I can't unscrew my manfrotto 3433 tripod head. How do I do it?


Extend the center column to its fullest and look underneath, you will see three slotted set screws. Looses then off (they don't normally need to be removed but loosed well) and make sure the pan on the head is tight and just unscrew it from the column. You can have it off in less time then it took to write this solution. Cheers

The Pan Tilt Head cannot be removed from my Manfrotto CXPRO3


Extend the center column, there are 3 screws underneath that when unscrewed will allow the head to be tightened or loosened. The head is screwed on about 4 or 5 revolutions. You will need a flat head screwdriver. Take the center column out if you need to to be able to get to the screws.

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.

Here's a page showing Manfrotto heads:

Which head do i buy with the manfrotto 055xprob


Any head that matches your requirements. Do you want a ball head? A tilt-and-pan head? How much weight will have it to support? The tripod comes without a head because no one except you can decide which is the best head for you.

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.
