Question about Quantaray QSX 9002TM Tripod with Built-in Removable Monopod

Open Question

Need the part at the top of the tripod that the camera locks into

My camera was attached to my tripod and it got knocked over. The weight of the camera caused the locking mechanism to snap off. There appears to be a screw with a spring on the base, but the black plastic locking mechanism broke. Can we purchase a replacement part, and if so, is it easy to repair myself?

SOURCE: The knob/screw that loosens and

very cheap tripod. might want to find a better tripod.. they don't have a long life expectancy as they are made for cheaper camera systems and not suited for heavy cameras,, have you thought of buying a better tripod. i don't want yo uto think i am making fun of your tripod but quantaray anything is usually not that good.. quantaray products are usually sold in packages that you buy on-line when you buy one of their lenses and they pitch a tripod in which are chinese tripods and made very cheaply.. i would not trust one of my cameras on top of a quantaray tyripod ever.. they are just too unstable.. sorry . but you may want to try a kalaimar or a manfrotto or go to craigslist or ebay and buy a used bogen or manfrotto (same tripod) for a fraction of the price of a new one and they are considered to be professional and will last for many years.. i have used the same one for over 20 years and it still works as good as it did the day i got it..

My camera is falling forward off tripod when I let go of it after a few seconds. I've tightened all the knobs and I need to fix this today..


Without knowing the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera, I can only be general/

The camera may be too heavy for the tripod head. Heads are rated to hold so much weight. If the camera/lens combo is too heavy for the head. it will tip forward. Many department store grade tripods can handle only light cameras.

The locking mechanism may be damaged/broken.

If you need more info, please repost the question, specifying the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera. If it takes interchangeable lenses, also include the make and model of the lens.

Is there a "lock" position on on the 3 leg spread of this tripod?


-Providing that the image shown is the tripod you own..., the top leg lock levers on each leg is designed to lock the spreader angle of each leg.
-If this is not holding the leg at the correct angle...., either you are putting more weight on it than it was designed to hold..., or the 'cam' on the various locks has worn.
-A 'stop gap' fix for this problem is to insert a very thin wedge between the lever & the leg tube..., thus providing a greater amount of pressure on the tube, (this would need to be done every time the tripod is set up).
-Replacement parts are not available for this tripod & they were not designed to be user serviceable ...., sorry!!!

Is there a Carbon fibre small compact with splitter


Carolyn
-If you are looking for a compact light weight (CF) tripod for video...., that is going to be...., stable & durable (for use with a smaller video camera or a DSLR) & with a mid-level spreader...., I have some bad news for you. They do not exist!!!!!
-You can get a number of tripods that meet some of these requirements..., but not all!!!
-No fear....., it is still possible to get a tripod that is small, light, repairable and with a higher weight capacity and better durability than either of the Manfrotto tripods you mentioned..., but they will not use a mid-level spreader!!!

-Questions for you...., the manfrotto #055CXB has a column that terminates with a flat plate & a 3/8-16" thread. The Manfrotto # MTV502AM tripod has a 75mm bowl mount. Do you use a video head with a flat base or with a 'bowl'?
-If your head has a flat base consider looking at CF tripods from brands such as Sirui (#N2204 or #N3204)..., great value tripod from China..., or products from Gitzo or Really Right Stuff...., (superior products...., and your grandkids will be using them..., but pricey)!!!!
-If your head uses a 75mm bowl mount get the Miller #1501 tripod...., stupidly strong and well supported.

-Bottom line..., with light to mid weight cameras, if you go with a good quality spreaderless tripod that uses 'rotary locks' vs 'quick release' locks...., the leg mechanisms are so superior that you will find that you will get less flex than most tripods with spreaders. They will also be smaller, lighter and allow you to shoot far closer to the ground!!!

Go t a shop that has a good selection of quality tripods and test for leg twist..., you will be converted!!! (note: to test this leg flex..., extend the legs & grab hold of (2) of the tubes near the top 'crown' and then try to move the legs to the left then right...., many will exibit significant flex at the joints!!!!

I JUST PICKED UP A TG-P60T TRIPOD IN A BACKPACK


you can hang your camera bag from it so the light weight tripod has more mass attached to it so it is more stable.

How do I attach the camera to the tripod?


Check the back of the camera to check if there is a hole with thread.
The top part of the tripod usually comes out. Screw the top part of the tripod to the camera and after that attach it back to the tripod.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

I have a Manfrotto 058 tripod. One leg wont hold weight & retracts under load. This model uses a quick release lever at the top of the leg to control the telescopic height of each leg. How can I repair...


If you notice, the legs locks are attached to bothe the upper part of the leg and the sloghtly smaller diameter lower. Take a socket (8mm I believe) and tighten the lower 2 nuts to the bottom of the leg lock.

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 FinePix S7000 Tripod


They [ cameras and tripods]all have a standard screw fitting.
So all cameras will fit all tripods.
The only factors therefore to consider is- weight[As it is a small digicam] you will not need a heavy weight one and the depth of your purse.

Best bet take the camera along to a store and try a few.
If it is not to be a surprise take Hubby too to try them out for himself. ;-}

Tripod for camera


For normal use, it is easy to attach any common tripod for such a light-weighted camera. So that you could carry it handily.
