Question about Velbon Victory 550 Grounder Tripod with PH-156Q 3 Way Fluid
What are the adjusting knobs for?
Question edited for full 'make model (what it is)'.
Question moved from Car Audio to a better category.
My first tripod was a Velbon. When I started wedding photography, I bought a bigger one for a Bronica medium format camera.
They don't really come with manuals, as they are pretty self explanatory. You can tighten them all down and undo one knob and see what moves. Tighten that and see what happens with the next knob.
You have 3 knobs or clips to extend the legs for height.
You have one knob to raise and lower the central pole. Often this can be used as a monopod.
Then you have the 'Fluid Head', with three adjustments;
1. Pan, this allows the head to move left and right.
2. Tilt, this is normally controlled by turning the stalk that you hold.
3. A knob to turn the camera base Landscape or Portrait.
4. Some have drag/friction knobs and various locks.
There are empty promises of manuals in this link, but there is a video on the Velbon Fluid Head.
