My mounting plate broke as well when it fell over. There is a vendor on Amazon who sells them, but they are 7.99, and shipping is 7.00, not Prime eligible, so just the plate comes out to 14.99, which is about the price for a new TG-5060. I'm going to ditch the mount and drill a hole through the tripod quick release, then use a piece of bolt with the head cut off and a wing nut to attach it. It's either that or through the tripod away, and I hate to waste things that can be fixed.

Targus Tripod TG-P60T is binding while panning horizontally, how can I resolve this issue?


There are two issues I'd like to help resolve here.
They are 'binding while I'm panning' and 'binding when I start to pan'.

Binding while I'm panning...
There is a large knob on the side of the panhead that needs to be loosened slightly. I have seen some folks loosen the panning handle because they believe it to release the panning mechanism.
Also, be sure that the camera you are using is not too heavy. There's a 5lb (2.2kg) limit and that can also cause undue strain.

Binding when I start to pan...
When panning, I advise our students to begin their pan a couple of feet ahead of the actual scene they'd like to pan and finish a couple of feet after the scene. This allows for a smooth pan after you overcome the inertia in getting the pan head to move and doesn't result in a jerky stop. It's straightforward to edit out these lead in and lead out sections.

Hope this helps.

I lost the plate to my TG-5060TR tripod I called the company and they were not very helpful Can anyone help me get a replacement plate for cheap


Try www.TripodQuickRelease.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen. Because your tripod is not supported by the manufacturer; parts lists and pars are not available, you should measure the opening and see what other brand quick releases will work paying attention to the shape and locking mechanism. Otherwise just get another tripod.

I JUST PICKED UP A TG-P60T TRIPOD IN A BACKPACK


you can hang your camera bag from it so the light weight tripod has more mass attached to it so it is more stable.

Try www.TripodQuickRelease.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of quick releases and support more brands than any other web site I've seen. Targus parts exactly will be hard to get so you may have to measure the opening of the quick release hole and work from there.
