Any shop that deals with cameras, either digital or photo should have these screws. You are more likely to find them at a camera shop rather than Walmart though.

Does the company that makes this tripod sell the small square part that screws into the camera?


Tripod quick mount plates (the part that is secured to the camera) are specific to tripod manufacturer. A tripod without a mating mounting plate is pretty much worthless as there is no way to mount the camera to it.

You will need to contact the manufacturer (or a reputable camera store) and provide the model of your tripod and the size of the threaded mount in you camera - most are either 1/4" or 3/8".

Good luck!

The screws on my tripod will not tightened


Take out the whole Camera Plate. there is a plastic cap on the top of the tripoid, right by the end of your tripod extender, that comes out with a little pulling it. Now, have a look at the end of the knob housing from which your screw accidentaly came out. You will see a perfect spot in wich you need to re- insert the nut that came out. Once you do it, all you need to do is to re- insert the knob back into place, and it will "bite" the nut again at the end of the housing. Re- install the whole plate back on top of your tripod. Finally, put the plastic cap back at the top. You might need to gently tap it in. Done deal . Problem resolved ! Enjoy your tripod !

DONT KNOW HOW CAMERA GOES ON TRIPOD WILL ANY CAMERA WORK ON IT OR DOES JUST CERTAIN ONES WORK ON IT IT IS A DYNEX 60 " DIGITAL TRIPOD


It is usually obvious where the camera goes, so I am pretty sure that what you have is a tripod with a quick release plate that doesn't have the quick release plate fitted. This is very common when you buy a tripod second-hand. The quick release plates get attached to a camera and people forget to reunite them with the tripod before disposing of it.

If you bought the tripod new, then look in the packaging for a plate with a screw to attach to the normal camera tripod screw in socket. There ought to be more than one. The screw is standard throughout the world, except maybe Germany that used to use a different size. Any camera you have will have this socket on the bottom, a threaded hole about a quarter inch (5 or 6mm) in diameter. The plate will be a design peculiar to this make of tripod, and if you lose it or don't have it you will be unlikely to get another.

Having trouble mounting my Nikon D3000 to Zeikos 72" tripod. There is not manual included and I'm not sure how to get it to stay on the quick release plate, other than manually rotating the camera...


Quick release plates on all tripods are in two pieces. One stays on the tripod and provides a locking mechanism to secure the camera and the other stays connected to the tripod socket on the camera.

How to put a camera on it


If it's a quick release tripod you need to remove the quick release plate (Usually a release lever to the side of the top of the tripod) and then fasten the plate securely to the camera and then the plate to the tripod. Older non-quick-release tripods have a knurled screw located below the flat area where the camera is attached. If the screw is missing, get a relacement from your local hardware store - 1/4" -20. (Find a way to keep the new one from getting lost.)

Securing camera to tripod


It sounds like the bolt is not theading into the camcorder nut far enough. don't go more than a 1/2 inch up into the nut however. You might need a longer shoe bolt.

Need part for Quantaray QSX-DigiPro 8500


This is a longshot but it may well work if you can't get one from the manufacturer mailed to you for a reasonable price, there are mini tripods at most drugstores with the base plate and screw that are pretty cheap you may be able to take the screw from one of those and use it, they are all the same thread.

Bogen Manfrotto 3047 head


Dear spiderinkart,
To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
