Open Question

Beginner question I have a tripod and will be using it with my camcorder. There are two posts on the tripod surface - one threaded and the other not. I get that I screw the camcorder onto the surface using the threaded post but how do I get it off of the tripod if the second post is in place in the bottom of the camcorder? Does that make sense? I don't understand how to release the second post in order to remove the camcorder from the tripod. Thanks, k

Usually the camcorder has a hole next to the mounting screwhole. The plastic nub fit into the unthreaded hole, the mounting screw screws into the threaded hole. The nub is to help prevent the camcorder from rotating while you are using it on the tripod.

Starting to sew basic stitch


You need to know how to thread the upper thread, wind thread onto a bobbin, and install the bobbin in the machine.

Be sure to lower the presser foot onto the fabric you are going to stitch.

Then press on the foot control pedal (like a gas pedal in a car). The harder you press, the faster it will stitch.

There are a lot of web sites and videos available. But, you should probably read the machine's manual.

My Flip was working fine until I tried to attach it to a tripod using the screw fixing at the bottom of the device Now it will not switch on. It is reconginsed by my computer and the red light switches on...


There is a reset button up inside the thread for the tripod. Maybe it got jammed and stuck in. You might try bumping it with a stiff wire or a small screw driver.

I need the camera mount to use with my Ambico V-0540 tripod


T-mount is the correct term.  Ebay, if you go that direction has some.  The other alternative is B & H Photo Video.

Removing Tripod head from center post on Manfrotto Modo 785B


I have the national geographic branded version. Here is how you remove the head.

(1) remove the center post from the tripod
(2) lock the ball head with the trigger lock
(3) grasp the body of the ball head with one hand and the center column with the other.
(4) turn counter clockwise.

If you're intending to replace the ballhead, be warned that the thread is non-standard. I have a new "plug" with a standard 1/4" thread made for free by the machinist at my job. I don't know how you would go about adapting it without such a capability.

Stuck on tripod


You could try a little silicone spray around the threads (might want to wrap the camera in a cloth first).
However, if your camera was not threaded on straight then nothing will help to get it off but patience and persistance.

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 to Unscrew SLIK tripod head from the rest of tripod?


Below the tripod head you will see what looks like a "sandwich" of two chromed pieces of metal.  The lower one is the top of the tripod's center column.  The upper one is the bottom of the tripod head. Using wrenches or other tools, unscrew the upper one counterclockwise to separate it from the lower one. There is a 1/4" threaded stud which holds them together.
If you plan on replacing the head with a pro head like a Manfrotto, you will need a reducing bushing.  Most heads expect a 3/8" stud, and this tripod's thread is a standard 1/4" stud. The adapters are available through Wolf, Adorama, B&H, and the like.
