Attach the camera on the tripod head. Turn the tilting knob to the neutral (zero) position. Slide the plate to a position where the camera is well balanced and lock the slide plate.
* Keep holding the camera by hand when adjusting its position and balance.
Adjust the innerspring strength using the counterbalance adjustment knob. If the camera tilts forward, tighten the counterbalance. If the camera tilts backwards, loosen the counterbalance.
Tweak the slide plate to fine tune the counterbalance. Make sure the camera stays still at any tilt angle and set the pan & tilt switch knob to the desired position.
