Mount Camera to Tripod

Use the following instructions to securely set up your tripod and camera. 


  1. 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. 
  2. 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. 
  3. Attach the quick release clamp to the tripod. 
  4. Slide your camera into the quick release clamp.
  5. 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. 
  6. Check that the camera is level. 
    • Use a leveling device or 'eyeball' it - it doesn't have to be exact. 
  7. Check for any looseness or 'play' 
    • The camera should feel solidly attached to the tripod - if not, adjust the tripod or clamp as necessary. 
  8. 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.
