Question about Slik Photography
I was just given this tripod and am looking for some information on it - a users manual would be great. But after googling, and yahooing, I can't find a thing. There are tons of models listed, but not this one.
Can you help?
I have the same tripod, and the screw shown in the photo you posted is to lock down the rotation of the tripod's head, i.e., what a video camera uses to pan (horizontally) across a scene. The large knob is used for the same in the vertical direction (up and down motion).

I have the 512 QF which I got in the 90's for videos. It also works great for SLR still camera's also.or any camera that will screw on the quick release. If your talking about the screw
which is copper colored in the picture, it is just to hold the brass insert in that sets the tension when you turn the knob that the screw is in the middle of . By turning the knob it should loosen the arm and you can position the arm where you want it. In other words - don't worry about the screw... If you are still having problems , you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I believe I know everything about this tripod..

Carole- If you can send me a photo of that part of the tripod showing the screw- I may be able to tell what is is for. You may try to loosen it and see if the tension on the head changes or if something comes off. It seems that quick release parts are still available through dealers if that is missing. Let me know.
