The tripod has a head on it that contains a click release plate. Remove the click release plate.

Okay?

Note for Newbies: do not use a head like the one pitched above. It's only for seasoned DSLR Pros.

Instead, get one of these so that you do not drop your Matterport camera.

Best,

Dan

Yes. Exactly. You have two quick release plates: one in each photo. One quick release plate is part of the Matterport Camera. The other one - on top of the tripod head goes to your DSLR.

Okay?

Best,

Dan

Yes. Be careful; just in case the Matterport camera and tripod head are different sizes.

I do NOt recommend the head that you are using. Easy to drop the camera. Easy to have the camera fall, if the ball head is loose.
