Sorry that I can't give you a definitive answer, but Velbon do not publish a spares catalogue.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

I have an Ambicco 0552 model tripod that has a broken handle on the head. Is there any place I can find a replacement?


Try the manufacturer / importer for spares. Or try Ebay, specifying the make, model and part number. Your local friendly camera dealer may also be able to help

There is no way to fix it. You should go to nearest Service centre and change the Camera body part.

The knob/screw that loosens and tightens to move the brace up and down the center base broke off. I've only had this tripod for about a year and have hardly used it.


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..

Were can i get a foot for a miranda v750 tripod,please. I need the rubber, the screw bit and the bit that fits inside the leg. thankyou.


Sorry, but you can't.

All Miranda branded products were exclusive to DSG (Dixons, Currys) and were the cheapest of the cheap. As such they are not designed to be repaired and spare parts are not available. Any Miranda products which failed during the manufacturers warranty and were returned to DSG for repair were invariably thrown away and replaced with DSG claiming a credit from the supplier.

This is not exclusive to Miranda, most cheap to medium priced brands of all similar products have the same policy. If you want tripods which will last for years with full spare parts support then you have to pay a lot more for the likes of Manfrotto, Gitzo, Velbon, Benbo, Slik and others but they're all only worth it for regular tripod users or for those for whom price isn't an issue.

Even if you could get the spare part, it would cost more than one of the tripods which the likes of Aldi and Lidl regularly sell in the UK for £10. The Aldi version comes with a carry bag, spare quick release plate, carry handle and strap and a comprehensive three year no quibble warranty. They're not on the current stock list, but come in every few months as one of their regular special deals.

If you don't want to replace your tripod, then the next best thing is to simply fashion a wooden plug to fit the end of the damaged leg and maybe fit a rubber foot on the end, like those sold for walking sticks or the the kind sold by larger DIY stores to fit under wooden chair legs.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance and that you can return the favour by rating my answer.

Problem with solidex tripod


ptolhatley,
If it is a standard professional tripod - they are sold without the head mechanism so you can pick the type and style that best suits your needs,such as for sports, portrait, or commercial photography. Most camera shops can show you samples of the different types. You can go online to get an idea of the range in price (be aware that they are as much as a standard tripod that has a built-in head).

Tripod problem


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

Need help with Kodak CX7530


The first thing you need to determine.... Is it your or the camera? You need to take a series of shots with your camera sitting on a tripod. If you do not have a tripod, sit the camera on a solid surface. ................... Camera movement is the number one cause of blurred photos. A few tips: 1. When you punch down the shutter button ... that can move the camera just as the picture is taken. Dont ''punch'' down the shutter button. Hold the camera in such a manner that you are squeezing the shutter button between your forefinger and thumb. 2. When you are using the LCD to frame the shot, you have your arms extended in front of you. This invites camera movement. Instead, use the viewfinder and make sure that the camera is pressed against your face. Your head is steadier that two outstreatched arms. For added stability, lean your shoulder against a pole, tree, building, or other solid object. 3. When taking flash pictures remember, that flash only covers so much area. The CX7530 is rated for 11.8 feet if you are not using optical zoom. It is rated for only 6.9 feet if you are using optical zoom. If your subject(s) are beyond those distances, you will get a dark photo. 4. When shooting in dim light and not using flash, the camera will select a slow shutter speed. You must use a tripod or sit the camera on a solid surface.
