Adjusting drag on Davis & Sanford fluid head tripods
The most popular Davis & Sanford fluid head tripod is the FM-18, which is factory set up to pan properly with relatively heavy cameras up to 18 pounds. This tripod has an internal adjustment that will allow you to reduce the amount of damping (drag) to accommodate lighter cameras like yours. Please contact Leigh Boden, our resident tripod expert, and he will tell you precisely how to do it yourself without having to send it in. Good luck, and best regards.
