Does anyone know how to loosen the index knob with the included Allen wrench so I can change the orientation of the top clamp?
Asked by: James
There is a wheel underneath the quick release clamp. If it is too tight to loosen by hand, you can use the supplied allen wrench to insert into one of the holes. Remember, right is tight and left is loose.

Can anyone give suggestion as to how to loosen the index knob, it won't budge at the moment?
Asked by: James
There is a flat round turn wheel below the quick release clamp. It has holes on each lobe. Turn to the left to loosen. If it is too tight, insert the supplied allen wrench for added leverage if needed. As you loosen, the clamp can be lifted and rotated to re-position.

What is the difference between this 1165 vs 1160 ...

What is the difference between this 1165 vs 1160 ? It looks different though.
Asked by: Hiromu
The 1165 has degree marking on the tilt axis and the 1160 has none. The 1165 also has a pointer ring on the pan which the 1160 has none. They both can function as a Long Lens Head but the additional parts on the 1165 allow the photographer to shoot multi row panoramas. They both have the index-able clamp which allows you to orient the clamp for a lens or a camera body.
