Try it this way. Actually I'm wrong, I need to pull the lever out on the tripod, but not on the Pilot.

It seems to me I'm having a newer version of this Bogen adapter. I can only slice the camera plate onto the adapter in 1 direction. There's an arrow indicating which side I have to use.

Can you use both ways?

Yes, I can slide it in from both sides. Is yours a 3273?

Hi Nick,

No, I bought this one :

I now realise they're not the same. I can only slide in from one side...



But maybe I should have gotten this one? :

Thanks a lot Steven, but as I live in Belgium, I think that would be overkill :-)

Well that'll teach me to read this board when I am half asleep.
