The Manfrotto tripods supplied for us to review were accompanied by two tripod heads, each of which can be used on a wide range of Manfrotto tripods. Although made from different materials, both have a black finish that matches most Manfrotto tripods. It adds 12 cm to the height of the basic tripod and grams to overall weight. As supplied, the RC2 requires some assembly before it can be used. A smaller fitted handgrip controls degree panning movement.

Hi Guys, I have an RC2 head and it is far new. After used just once at the beach it started to get hard to moviment. Beach Photography is one of my favorite subjects so I don't want to have to take the head to a profissional services whenever back from there, so I'd like to learn how can I de-assembly, clean and assembly it back myself.

Does anybody can help me with this, please, Thank you for any help, Luiz. BigRick 14 2. I cant help with the assembly, but next time you use it on the beach,,,, wrap a carrier bag or something around the head so it stops the sand getting in I just found out this very helpful PDF on the Manfrotto's web site.

It looks like a plastic seal. How should I take it off? Should I just put a screwdriver there in order to take it off? Thank you Luiz. Pete Plus. I needed to clean a Nintendo Wii which had covers over its screws. They were lightly glued on and I imagine the tripod is similar. A very fine tipped one so you don't damage the edge of it. If you're unsure it may be worth contacting Manfrotto service dept and asking if the piece just clips off.

Quote: How should I take it off? It looks like it. Did it. As stated by Pete before there is a glue there. Once clipped it off you have access to that parts showed by the PDF. No grace oil or other lufricant looks to be requiered. Just cleaned for the sand in there and is all working fine now. Thank you all. Quote: Just cleaned for the sand in there and is all working fine now. Good to hear and a big thanks for coming back to share the outcome for future users who may have the same issue.

I found this interesting as I have just missed some good shots of a fox crossing a field. I have a mm lens attached and discovered the tilt and side to side were sticking and jerking instead of moving smoothly, which caused me to keep losing sight of the fox. WD 40 is also a 'wet' lubricant and could do the same thing. You need a dry lubricant if at all. Hi mikehit, You shouldn't use it there. Having the mechanism clean would be enough. Regards, Luiz.
