Re: 800/5.6 tripod collar rotation problem

Dont Panic! Its happened to me with my 800 and my 500 because I use it with my Mongoose 3.6 and the mount is on one side.

When I remove it from the head and I turn it in the wrong direction I end up with a limited range. If you dont rotate it back to its midpoint you will only have 90 degrees in one direction. Just rotate it in the opposite direction more than the 90 degrees then you will have the full range of motion!
