How to remove the head of a Giottos camera tripod


Most tripods have a 1/4" thread attached to the centre column, which then screws into the base of the head (some may have a 3/8" thread, but the principle is the same).
Grasp the head firmly in one hand, the shaft firmly in the other, and rotate the head counter clockwise to remove the old head. If it has been in situ for some time, it may be stiff to rotate.
Once you have removed the old head, lubricate the threads on the centre column, then attach the new head, rotating this one clockwise.
If the old head will not unscrew under firm manual pressure, remove the centre column and place in a vice, packing it with wooden battens to protect it. Then attempt to unscrew the head, using a mole grip or similar if necessary.

I live in Spain.I have a Giotto tripod VT-806 and have lost the top camera mount and screw. Do you know where I can get one.


Take your tripod to a Giotto dealer, or go to www.giottos.com/ and order a replacement quick-mount camera plate. While you're at it, buy a spare!

I have a giottos MTL 8360B tripod and I have lost one of the bolts/screws that clamps the centre column. Does anyone know how/where to order replacement parts? Thanks


Best to contact closest Giottos support or distribution centre in your country. Check this site. maybe first try your local camera shop.

GIOTTOS IND INC

Look like it may be a very old model as it is not showing up in the current product lists.

Legs Locks Loose


Ross
-It is possible that you are overloading the tripod, thus causing this problem (check specs on tripod model)
HOWEVER IF YOU AREN'T....Giotto uses (2) different leg lock designs..., quick release (normally adjusted by a socket wrench) or rotary (screw locks)!
- If tripod uses screw locks, sometimes foreign material gets into the mechanism and either damages it or prohibits from tightening!!!!!
Note: rotary locks are easy to maintain & if you need parts..., they are user replaceable and usually inexpensive! (contact Giottos distributor in the country you live in)!!!
BUT FIRST!!!! (often problem is caused by dirty lock mechanism)
-carefully unscrew the leg lock (that is slipping) until it separates from the leg higher leg section & carefully pull out the lower tube (at the top of the lower tube will be 'shims' that are part of the lock mechanism).
-Look closely at existing 'shims' do they show signs of cracking, of a build up of dirt, etc. (if damaged they will need to be replaced)
-if shims are undamaged..., use rubbing alcohol & a clean cloth to clean shims and both the tube they sit on and the inside of the tube they slide into.
-once both sides of the tubes and both male & female threads of the locking mechanism are cleaned..., place a light coating of a light oil into the threads (sewing machine oil, bike chain oil, etc)...., do not get oil on the shims!!!!!
-replace locking shims back into position and carefully slide leg tube back into place..., then screw locking collar on (this should not take any force..., if while threading lock collar back on..., it seems tight..., back off collar and check positioning of shims). Repeat procedure!!!
TEST RESULTS!!!
Note: in most cases with rotary locks, problem is purely a maintenance issue, cleaning usually fixes the issue!!!

I have a Giottos (VT806) Tripod and one of the centre stays has broken. Where can I get a replacement?


If you are in the USA call 800 735-4373. You will probably have to send the tripod in but they will direct you. The VT 806 is being discontinued and replaced by the HD444

How to fit canon s5is on a tripod stand (fotomate)?


I'm not sure what you're asking. There is a threaded tripod socket on the bottom of the camera. You just screw the tripod into this socket. Is that what you were asking?
