camera to the tripod thereby enhancing its stability. Last but not
least, the photo-movie selector allows maximum freedom in any
circumstance. Switching to the desired mode only takes a second and

DSLRs with standard kit lenses but is compatible also with any device up

If you own a compact device with the tripod thread in an off-centre
position please be aware that there are some limitations on how close to
the side of the camera the Â¼” thread can be. The minimum distance of
the Â¼” thread from the lateral edge of your device must be 13mm to
assurance the declared performance. To preserve and protect its
finishing and original color it is recommended to clean it with a
standard white pencil eraser.
