Take a look at the photo. There is a plate sitting on top of the head that attaches to the bottom of your camera......just like a tripod would. (there are two separate screws in this photo.....you would only use the size that fits your camera. There is also an alignment pin.)

Once the plate is attached. All you have to do is slide it in and out of the top of the head via a knob and a release pin.

I have been accused of having a fluid head! Also empty.

Some have asked if it is screwed on right.

Most wonder where I keep it.

A former teacher advised me to keep it out of the clouds.

Mom always said it's too big for my shoulders.

I used to listen to Motorhead.

Firediver, I need to know how the fluidheads attach to a camera arm. Thats why I need a picture of the bottom of a fluid head. I have an aluminum spool gun for my wirefeed welder and I'm going to make my own camera arm. Before ordering one of these fluid heads I would like some idea on how they attach. Thanks

buksnort, depends on the type of fluid head you are getting. seems to me, the camera arms I have, theres an offset piece that bolts to the arm, then has another offset that attaches to that. then the fluid head attaches to that. sorry I can't be more certain, but both arms are at the farm in trees.
