The Essential Copy stand V2
The new version comes now with even sturdier base. The metal base is in three parts. The shorter black metal peaces are legs and the longer one is the base where to attach the legs. All you have to do is to screw the peaces together, attach the camera mount on the column and add the extension to that if you have purchased this.
Start by locating the needed two screws and nuts. Match the rounded corners from both peaces (base and leg plate) and screw them on. Make sure to tight the screws properly with the provided hexkey.
The center colum comes pre- attached to its base so only thing there is left to do, is to attach the column base on the baseplate. As with the version one copy stand, we have kept it possible to secure the fit of the center column with the provided bigger screw. To utilise this screw, line the hole in the base plate to match the hole underneath the column.
To insert the copy stand head, unscrew the tightning handle on the back of the head a bit, push the handle in to give some space to clear the rail.
If you have not gotten the stand with the extension, move to the next step.
If you have purchased the extension, insert it the rails from the top with the two connectors facing outwards instead of towards where the camera would be. Tighten the screws from the side, firmly, using the size 5 (middle size) metric key provided.
Push on the end-cap provided.
Attach the camera to the camera head by twisting the large tripod screw from the back while holding the camera until you are sure it is tight. Make the screw as tight as you can with your fingers.
The design of the head means that it will not drop even if the adjustment handle is loosened - this avoid damage to your camera. To adjust the head up and down, use one hand to hold onto the head and lift front of the head where the camera is mounted, slightly. This removes pressure from the column and allows you to slide the head up and down.
You now have a new copystand!
