My camera not comming on

There are (2) common (non-terminal) issues that cause this problem.
1) the contacts inside the camera have become oxidized...., using the eraser on the end of a pencil..., rub (clean) the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment.
2) Modern Li-Ion batteries often last only (3) years...,(if you have good ones)...., so what happens is that as the batteries reach the end of their life span they quite often will work one day and not the next (but show that they are fully charged). Thus if you only have the (1) battery, you will not know if it is the battery, the charger or the camera. Go to your local camera store (with your camera & battery) and see if they are willing to put a new battery in your camera..., if it powers up it's your battery or charger. ask if they will then try to charge your old battery on their charger for 1/2 an hour..., this is enough of a charge to find out if your camera will turn on using the old battery.
Now you must ask yourself, if I need to purchase a new battery of charger..., is it worth it.

Is there a Carbon fibre small compact with splitter

-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!!!!

How to fix lcd screen on fuji finepix s

You will probably need to send it off to a repair facility to get it fixed. One of the lights may be out, if you cracked it it will have to be replaced.

Try out you may be able to find one with the measurements of the opening on your tripod. Shoot us an email if you have any questions.

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

I am looking for tricks on using a one leg tripod. Anything, how to carry, quickly bringing it up or make it shorter. Will be shooting an event that will require a lot of quick movements. Thanks!

Practice with the monopod before you start. If you haven't bought the monopod, get one with a snap lever like the Manfrotto 685B it has one button release, and a foot step so you can stand on the base and raise it quickly. But there is no trick to using, just lots of practice.

Tripod problem

If you twist the panning arm on most tripods this usually locks the position.
