Having difficulty in finding a good tripod to hold Nikon D5000 steady especially on un-even ground and with additional larger lenses


A cheap discount-store tripod isn't worth the money. For the best results, you need a good tripod. Unfortunately, it's almost a law of nature that a tripod that's light enough to carry isn't going to be steady enough.

Visit a good camera store (not a department store that happens to sell cameras) and try some out. You want to find a good tripod that balances weight, stability, and cost. Only you can decide where that balance point is for you. Check the web. Here's one essay that may help (and may dishearten you):
http://www.bythom.com/support.htm

Yes, a good tripod will cost money. But a good tripod will still be a good tripod ten or twenty years down the road, long after you've replaced your current camera. I'm on my fourth tripod now, and I wish I'd bought it first and skipped the first three.

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.)

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.

Where can I get parts?

I did not have any luck in locating the leg locking assembly for my Vivitar V3000. Instead, I plastic welded both that were broken on mine. So far, so good!

I guess you can have a nice, personalized one made to order here: http://www.shapeways.com/model/132025/tripod_camera_plate.html but the price is going to be excessive even though S&H is gratis. As Guest says, you'd be better off buying a new tripod :-)
