Thread: Unscrew Ballhead

    Default Unscrew Ballhead

    Help, it's urgent since I'll be leaving this morning.

    How to unscrew the ballhead from the tripod's leg. I already remove the locking screw (three of em) but still unable to unscrew the ballhead.

    Yes, you have to twist the ball head out as it is attached by a screw similar to that on the quick release plate.

    Hope it worked.

    Hi All, I managed to unscrew with Foto Thailand's staff help, damn i did not realize that you need big "force" to rotate it CCW.

    Anyway, thanks all for the tip.
