Question about Photography

Velbon 5000 I am trying to figure out how to use my Velbon 5000 tripod. I never use tripods and do not use my camera that often, but have gotten it out so I can use it at Christmas. I feel like I may be missing a piece or something, because I can't see how to connect the camera to the tripod. Can you give me specific instructions? Thanks. Sharon

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.

How much weight will the Velbon Victory 250 Tripod hold?


The tripod will certainly hold this weight. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.

The tripod will certainly hold your Canon camera and lens. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.

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.
