order to switch off the drag completely.
The different drag levels can only be felt if the horizontal and
vertical brakes are open. If you apply drag, the degree of hori-
zontal and vertical drag is identical and thus enables precise
diagonal panning movements without jerks and vibrations.
Make sure that you always turn the setting to the next indexed
position. Engage the retainer pins by slowly panning or tilting
the camera.
Panning or tilting the camera with settings between the
indexed positions can damage the retainer pins and/or disks.
3.7 Brakes
The horizontal brake applies the lock for the pan and the verti-
cal brake for the tilt movement. Both brakes are free off vibra-
tions and can be used during shooting.
3.8 Change of the battery
The illumination is powered by one standard type button cell
(CR 2032, 3 V) located in the battery holder, which can be
opened with a sharp object such as a screwdriver.
Make sure to insert the new batteries according to the “plus”
symbol as indicated in the covering plate.
The battery last for about 2000 illumination cycles.
3.9 Transport setting of drag, counterbalance
and brakes
To ensure smooth operation of the setting rings for the drag
over the long life time period of the fluid head, you should
turn both setting rings from position “0” to maximum positi-
on, before and after the use of the fliud head.
Setting during transportation: the most important issue is to
open both brakes -horizontal and vertical. Counterbalance and
drag should be set to maximum position.
