Customer Question
I have a new...

I have a new Nikon mount 150-600mm lens. How do I mount it to a feisol tripod with ball head?

Technician's Assistant: What Nikon model do you have?

D3300

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Nikon?

Just using the tripod mount that my camera easily fits by sliding onto pad and tightening with knob. The new lens foot doe not slide into that. There is a screw hole on the bottom..of the foot.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Thinking that i have to buy an accessory just to mount new lens.
