Hi , is there any chance to get a manual for the vinten 556 pedestal .... i need one for oxigen rechargement instructions ... please help ;-) thanks kurt


Try this link it is the closest i have found for the vinten 556 so far.

On a side note on that vinten pedestal you should use nitrogen gas on (vapor in air can rust inside parts).
We get a local commercial refridgeration and A/C service company to come and fill our up. it can take a bit of time to get a fitting that will work (we mod us to be a commen one they use) but i understand this part for the newer pedestals could work on the old models. http://www.vinten.com/en/product/nitrogen-charging-adaptor

Is there a Carbon fibre small compact with splitter


Carolyn
-If you are looking for a compact light weight (CF) tripod for video...., that is going to be...., stable & durable (for use with a smaller video camera or a DSLR) & with a mid-level spreader...., I have some bad news for you. They do not exist!!!!!
-You can get a number of tripods that meet some of these requirements..., but not all!!!
-No fear....., it is still possible to get a tripod that is small, light, repairable and with a higher weight capacity and better durability than either of the Manfrotto tripods you mentioned..., but they will not use a mid-level spreader!!!

-Questions for you...., the manfrotto #055CXB has a column that terminates with a flat plate & a 3/8-16" thread. The Manfrotto # MTV502AM tripod has a 75mm bowl mount. Do you use a video head with a flat base or with a 'bowl'?
-If your head has a flat base consider looking at CF tripods from brands such as Sirui (#N2204 or #N3204)..., great value tripod from China..., or products from Gitzo or Really Right Stuff...., (superior products...., and your grandkids will be using them..., but pricey)!!!!
-If your head uses a 75mm bowl mount get the Miller #1501 tripod...., stupidly strong and well supported.

-Bottom line..., with light to mid weight cameras, if you go with a good quality spreaderless tripod that uses 'rotary locks' vs 'quick release' locks...., the leg mechanisms are so superior that you will find that you will get less flex than most tripods with spreaders. They will also be smaller, lighter and allow you to shoot far closer to the ground!!!

Go t a shop that has a good selection of quality tripods and test for leg twist..., you will be converted!!! (note: to test this leg flex..., extend the legs & grab hold of (2) of the tubes near the top 'crown' and then try to move the legs to the left then right...., many will exibit significant flex at the joints!!!!

To order service parts contact the importer:
Canada-JCL Sales (Richmond B.C.)
USA-HP Marketing (Pine Brook NJ)
-Inform them of the tripod model and possibly provide them with photos of where the spreader arms attach to both the legs & the center column...., you may require additional parts.

How do you balance the head?


Conect a large weight to underneath the apex of the tripod ...more weight more stability

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:-

http://tripodquickrelease.com/Focal_Quick_Releases.htm

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.

Did you grab the hand screw on the bottom of the head? Loosen it and the head will swivel to level.
