I have an ultimate beginner's/really silly but presently really pertinent question.
Tomorrow I'm traveling for the first time with my 4x5. Consequently, I am trying to fit my tripod and tripod head in my suitcase---consequently I need to detach this behemoth 3047 Manfrotto head from my 3221W tripod. I remember attaching them (I bought them separately) by gently screwing the 3047 onto the top of the 3221W. Now, however, no matter how insanely hard I turn and twist, I cannot detach the head from the tripod mount.
The most helpful piece of information at this point would be for someone to take a look at these pictures:
And tell me if you know where the tripod ends and the head begins (I don't want to waste effort trying to unscrew part of the tripod from the tripod or head from the head, etc.).
Open to suggestions and humiliating teasing alike . . . =)
