Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I inherited a Manfrotto tripod with a a Manfrotto 3130 head attached. I purchased a very large lens and need to change the head, but I can't get the first one off. This is partially because I don't know how it is attached to the tripod. I would have guessed it simply screws on, but nothing moves when I try to unscrew it. Help please. Thanks, John

Remove 3130 head from 3021 tripod


The head is mounted on the base by a 3/8" screw. The head is held in place by 3 set screws in the base. Turn tripod upside down, loosen (or if completely removed, do not lose them) those 3 screws, turn tripod rightside up and unscrew head from tripod. If unable to turn head, loosen screws a little more. If scres are removed and heaf still not comeing off, Use pipe wrench or afjustable pliers wrapped in cloth to preven maring and loosen.

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:

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.
