Gitzo off centre ball head

I have been given a Gitzo o/centre ball head, the screw that secures the camera to to the mounting plate is missing, there is no model number on the head but I have been told it is about 20 years old, do you have any advice as to where I can obtain one?

Go to big lots or other discount house (I went to sears and spent $4.00) and buy the cheapest mini tripod you can find and scarf the screw/knob off that. That is what I did.

In the Gitzo GH2750QR head the quick release plate got stuck. What to do?


Is it the plate itself that is stuck, or is it the lever that needs to be moved to release the plate ? From a brief look at images of the item, it looks as if there is a small locking lever connected to the actual release lever - has this been freed, or is it that which is stuck ?

Head won't secure to tripod


Two potential issues. 1. Perhaps you have just not screwed it on tight enough. Just tighten the black knob as much as you can then screw the head on your legs as tight as you can. 2. If you can't even do that I will assume that the hole on the bottom of the head is too large for the screw on the tripod legs, in which case you just need a a bushing adapter. Like this one:

What tripod took over from the 1548 Gitzo tripod i have a 600 f4 canon lens + wimberly head and require a tripod to go with it any information would be grateful. Cheers Kevin


Hi,
As I suspected the Gitzo 5541LS replaces both the GT5540LS and the G1548 tripod. Currently, there is an ongoing rebate until 06/30/2010.
Hope this helps. Andrew Don't forget to vote.
