Many photographers have their own tripods. Do you know how to maintain your tripod during daily use? Let's talk about how the tripod is used and maintained.
The three legs of the tripod can be arbitrarily opened. The correct method is to open the three legs to the limit specified by the tripod. No matter how many sections of the tripod, how high the tripod should be lifted, The thick and thin" foot tube is laid down to stretch the foot. Because the tube sleeve structure is used, the lower the tube diameter, the more unstable it is. Therefore, when using, try to use the upper foot tube. According to the required height, first pull out the second section, pull down in turn, and finally pull out the end foot tube. This is a way to ensure the stability of the tripod.
There are some gaps in each joint of the tripod. In the corrosive environment of the sand and the weather, and the corrosive environment of the seaside, the tripod of the tripod will be corroded, which will seriously affect the life of the tripod. Therefore, after the special weather shooting, the tripod is finally maintained and maintained. Clean the foot tube of the tripod with a clean soft cloth and simmer the water. After drying, apply a layer of grease between the joints of the foot tube. Repeat stretching several times to ensure full application. Then fold it and put it. Try not to place some heavy objects on it, because the long-term placement of the extrusion may damage the shape of the tripod, resulting in inconvenience and stability reduction in the future. The carbon fiber tripod is stored vertically, not horizontally. When the tripod needs to be stored for a long time, all the locking structures must be loosened to avoid damage to the tripod caused by long-term locking. Check each time before using the tripod to prevent unexpected problems during use.
