Can't remove ball head!
Mar 15, 2013

I've been trying to remove my Manfrotto 055 ballhead from my Slik 700DX legs for the past 20 minutes. The ballhead's instructions are pretty much useless, doesn't tell me what half the parts on the head actually do nor does it tell me how to remove it. The legs' instructions only say how to remove a pan head.
I tried doing the pan head removal method anyway, I've tightened everything on the head that can be tightened and the tripod's center column is secured, but turning the head counter-clockwise doesn't do anything. It just spins it around without loosening it at all. So I tried turning clockwise instead and it still didn't work, and then I tried clockwise and counter clockwise with the lock screws on the head loosened, and it just will not come off.

ANSWER:
Canon EOS 700D (EOS Rebel T5i)
