Attaching head to tripod

I am about to buy a used head and tripod for my video camera.  Are they compatable?  Can one be easily attached to the other or am I making a huge mistake?  They are a Manfrotto 3066 head and a Manfrotto 3193 tripod.

Video cameras come with a 1/4-20 threaded socket in the.  Make sure the 3066 has this size screw projecting form the place where the camer is attached.  The two Manfrotto should be compatible
The only time fitting together becomes a problem is if you are into the heavy duty professional equipment.
We especially like the Manfrotto fluid heads and have several in our facility.

What do I do to attach the camera after attaching it to the mount piece?


the quick release plate, that you are calling the "mount piece" will just snap onto the head of the tripod - if you aren't sure, a good way is to take off the QR plate from the camera, and then, with the screw threads face up, see how it fits into the head - many times, you have to engage the spring lever, so when you set the plate inside the head, it will snap locked into place. Then, re-mount it on your camera, and do the same thing, and there ya go.

How can i attach my canon 600D to a optex T-4151 tripod ?


Yes, your 600d has 1/4 threads at the bottom wich is ideal for tripod mounts, take the tripod head off the tripod, and line up the 1/4 tripod head and camera and screw in the tripod head into the camera (bottom), if any questions contact me thanks 4_15_2014_1_41_51_am.png

How do you remove the pan head


That tripod was not designed to have the head removed. if you do get the head apart, there is no way to attach another head without lots of re-milling and work. Go to www.itripod.com and buy a Manfrotto tripod. these come without head and can easily be up fitted.

What do I need to attach a Castel-XL focusing rack to my DV 7000 tripod? The attachment piece with the tripod does not attach in a sturdy fashion.


The XL attahes with a 1/4 or 3/8" camera screw or via an Arca compatible QR. If it is not tight on your tripod the problem is probably in the tripod head.

I have a Solidex video tripod that is missing the shoe that the camera itself attached to- in order to set on the tripod. I know the company is out of business, but is there another one that is compatible...


Most of them are compatable as the fittings are universal.
So try to check up at Studios if there are any tripods with the telescopic damage from which the shoe pad can be salvaged.
The other way is to get this fabricated easily from a good tooling shop with a sample that can be taken from a friend for confirming the dimensions.

Radian pro Gt head broke that holds the scope.


You can still order the plate that attaches the camera/scope to the head from Eagle Optics directly at this link:

I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera


Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.

Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.

You can still order a replacement foot from:-

But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!

I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

I need the camera mount to use with my Ambico V-0540 tripod


T-mount is the correct term.  Ebay, if you go that direction has some.  The other alternative is B & H Photo Video.
