Several persons reading these pages seem to use the superb Arca Swiss F-line camera. I bought a used one recently and see that the standards are not f ully perpendicular to the base when locked in the "Zero detents" click stops. I could live with that if I only KNEW that the planes of the standards were parall ell but I see no easy way to check that (other than checking the sharpness at in finity of course). Well, I have measured the resp. distancies between the standa rds on both sides and can see there is a difference, i.e. they are not exactly p arallell. Since I often take pictures in large rooms with limited light, see my choir picture on my home page, I need to use large apertures => shallow depth of field.
Now to the question: Is there a reasonably simple way to adjust the "Zero detent s" position of the Arca mechanism? I see some hex screws but I am hesitating to "attack" them since they seem to be very thin and I am afraid of breaking someth ing.
