Using the Tripod Mount (sold separately)

Adjusting the Revolving Mount

This lens can be used with the D (B) tripod mount ring, sold separately.

You can loosen the orientation lock-knob on the tripod mount to allow it to rotate as needed to fit a particular camera model for switching between vertical and horizontal positions.


Use the following procedures to remove and attach the tripod mount

Turn the locking knob counterclockwise until it becomes loose (about 3 turns), and pull the knob in the direction of the arrow to release the collar
With the collar open, remove the tripod mount
To install, while pulling the locking knob, bring the collar to the original position, and tighten the locking knob securely

Depending on the EOS camera model, if a battery pack or vertical grip is attached, the tripod mount may bump into it. If that is the case, remove the battery pack/vertical grip or the tripod mount.

The tripod collar can be attached to or detached from the lens while the lens is attached to the camera
