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!

I recently found a Velbin Tgk-3 but i need a screw because the one it had broke does anyone know where i can buy one?

If you need the screw that goes into the camera you can find one at, just follow the chart and you should be able to find something or give them a call.

I Need the Manual for VELBON LEB-30C tripod where can i get it

You need a quick release plate in order to attach you camera to your tripod, it fits into the opening of the adapter on the tripod and you screw the plate into your camera, take a look at they carry Velbon quick releases and adapters.

I dont know which head would fit my tripod

Most tripods have a standard screw on top. This allows users to mix&match tripods and heads. Thus, just about any head should fit your tripod. If you're not sure, take your tripod with you to a good camera shop and see if any of their heads fit. If one fits, it's a pretty good bet that the others will as well.
The choice of the type of head (pan-head or ball-joint), its weight, cost, and other factors are, of course, up to you.

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.

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.

Problem removing head from tripod

Look on the underside of the platform where you screwed on the head. It should have 3 small screws in it. These are tighened and loosened with a jeweler's screwdriver. You may have one screw that is just *barely* tight, so you were able to hand tighten the head until it "locked" into place with the screw. When you loosen each of these screws a few turns the head should come off.

If you can't locate these screws, or you can't remove the head, you will need to take the tripod to a large camera store for assistance. Their rental or repair department can help you remove the head. If you need help locating a large camera store with a rental or repair department in your area, I may be able to help - I would need your location (e.g. city/state/country/zip or postal code).

Tripod screw

I once had an adaptor that would allow this kind of transition but it is odd that a Sony would have ASA threads instead of metric.

If you have a major camera shop (not Mall-wart) nearby they should have these.
If not, check with Ritz or Beach Camera.

As a last resort, the major chain 'home-improvement' stores may have 'wing screws' that could work.

Need parts to repair pan handle

I just had this problem! I took it to Ace hardware and the guys helped me out, big time. I have a PH-358 panhandle and the same piece fell of during a shoot into some brush and dirt outside.

We (they) fixed it using a #6 metric bolt and butterfly wing nut along with two grommets (3/8 ID and 5/8 OD). It worked perfectly! Not only does it hold the handle together but you can tighten or loosen the handle as well using the butterfly wing nut.
