    if i'm not wrong, you got a photo/video tripod rite? the extra metal knob thing is for video cams to make sure that the videocam is pointing straight and in the rite direction, for tilting and panning purposes. there's an extra hole for the knob. for still cams it doesn't matter so much cos you can adjust it anyway.

    Yes in the older cam and most video cam esp the older generation ones. there are 2 holes...
    one is the mounting holding and the other, the alightment one.

    Hopes that help!

    Ah i see.. My tripod is a Canon Tripod 300, and it says "Photo/Video Accessories"

    So, what are the difference with the different tripods?

    Hi John, you can actually remove that one, use a screw driver.

    actually you weren't that far off... the little knob IS to orientate the camera to the front... just not the camera u're thinking of.

    anyway it's the thought that counts...

    Thanks for the replies

    Anyway, "So, what are the difference with the different tripods?", can someone answer? Or is there another forum I should go to for answers?
