SOURCE: velbon 5000

On the bottom of your camera there will be a threaded metal socket. It should look silver in color and appear like the inside of a hardware nut -- threads that a bolt can screw into.

On the top of the tripod is a threaded bolt that fits into the socket on the bottom of the camera. Place the bolt gently into the socket, align it with the camera and gently turn it to the right (righty-tighty) to engage. Be careful not to strip the threads by tightening without aligning the bolt and the camera.

You should tighten it to where it is snug but don't force it.

Where can I get parts?

I got from friend a Velbon Victory 550 tripod. The handle that prevent the head from tilting is missing, and so is a piece of plastic that apparently held the rod upon which the head of the tripod is placed from shaking.

thank you

SOURCE: 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 a quick release shoe or platform that screws to the camera for a velbon stratos 460q tripod and what is the price for it and for shipping thanks for your help.


Velbon no longer manufactures this part. I can be ordered from a different manufacturer through www.tripodquickrelease.com or www.precision-camera.com. It may look different because it's a different manufacturer, but it is the right size and shape.

HI ! MY NAME IS ELENA AND I GOT A VELBON CX-44


Hi Elena,
Check the website: http://www.tripodquickrelease.com/Velbon_Quick_Releases.htm for your part needed. There were two CX series, 440 and 444. According to the site, you need quick release QB-4W or QB-4LC.
There are pictures of each quick release posted, so you can reference to the correct needed.
Hope this helps, Andrew

I need a spare part for this tripod, its the arm that you need to spin that makes the camera goes up and down. I need a part number and a price for this component. Thanks, Eran


Sorry that I can't give you a definitive answer, but Velbon do not publish a spares catalogue.

Spare parts are usually available for current/recent models but you need to contact Velbon directly via the web address given below; it takes you to another page which is appropriate to your country. The part which you're after is called a centre column crank handle.

http://www.velbon.co.uk/newvelbon/pages/contact.html

Velbon are at the budget end of the market so spares support and repairs have never been that great, but the company do sometimes simply post you a new tripod instead of repairing the old one.

Note that if you're in the UK and the tripod has failed earlier than can reasonably be expected then it is covered by the Sale of Goods Act (SoGA) for up to six years. Note that it is the seller, not the manufacturer, who is liable under SoGA and the manufacturers warranty is in addition to your statutory rights.
