Joe says… Frank had mounted his tri­pod’s foot­plate back to front, and so con­fused the foot­plate screw with the tri­pod’s tilt screw; when he thought he was tilt­ing his cam­era, he was ac­tu­ally un­do­ing it! Luck­ily his cam­era didn’t slide off, but I ad­vised him to se­cure the foot­plate so it was point­ing along the lens, to pre­vent any fur­ther con­fu­sion. It’s a very easy mis­take to make when you’re new to us­ing a tri­pod, and it can be a costly one.
