I recently came across a great deal for a Bogen 3011 tripod with a Bogen 3063 fluid head ($50 for both). However this is my first decent tripod and I'm not quite sure how to use it properly. Can anyone recommend a manual that I can download that will show me how to remove the head?
Also there is some kind of pin that seems loose on the head but I'm not sure what it does.
I eventually plan on getting a ball head so I need to know how to remove the current one. Also the legs seem stiff to pull out are the supposed to be like this or is there an adjustment screw somewhere?
One last thing, when extending the leg sections, should I extend the upper or lower sections first? I'm thinking the upper since the base would be more stable.
Thanks for any help anyone could provide.
At least that's what I can determine from the tags
