Use the following instructions to securely set up your tripod and camera.
- Open your tripod legs and extend them fully.
- It's better to adjust your tripod to the desired length by first fully extending the legs, then sliding them back in.
- Extend the legs to the desired length, then lock them in place.
- For an ideal viewing experience, we recommend placing the camera at eye level - to do this, extend the legs to five or six feet in length.
- Three feet or below is typically too low, while eight feet or above is too high.
- Attach the quick release clamp to the tripod.
- Slide your camera into the quick release clamp.
- Tighten the clamp to make sure it's secure.
- Double check that all parts are snug and secure. The camera will be able to spin freely - this is normal.
- Check that the camera is level.
- Use a leveling device or 'eyeball' it - it doesn't have to be exact.
- Check for any looseness or 'play'
- The camera should feel solidly attached to the tripod - if not, adjust the tripod or clamp as necessary.
- Check the mounting periodically while you are scanning.
- The clamp may get loose after lots of spins, which could cause the camera to spin off its axis and fall.
