I actually have no idea why it's stuck. I can rotate my head just fine, freely and loosely, but it just never moves. It just makes the same 360-degree circle repeatedly without ever moving up/down the threads.

Center column isn't spinning; just the ball head. I actually loosened the friction knob so much it came out entirely, and even then my head wouldn't detach. I could put the knob back in and adjust friction like usual, but yea, lowering the friction to the point the knob falls out did nothing.

Vice grips.

I'm actually appalled at how many people screw crap together with the threads on both ends being dissimilar metals and forget/choose not to use anti-seize.

Was hiking this morning and had my 300mm with me since there's a good chance at seeing deer or bears where I was headed. Long story short I picked the wrong rock to stand on crossing the stream and into the drink the 300mm lens went. Pulled it out real quick, dried it off and it works fine. Doesn't look like any water got inside. I'm thinking the bag might have done just enough to save it. Guess L stood for lucky today.

When I saw the bag floating, yeah I panicked big time. Once I got it out and realized there was just a small amount of water in the bag I felt better.

The camera bag didn't fall in, just the bag the lens comes with. I was actually surprised it floated too lol.

Edit: only thing different about the lens is this spot of red paint on the metal mount kinda smeared some more when I dried it off. No idea what that paint is for. Must not be anything important since I had smeared it a bit once before trying to get some gunk off the mount.
