Question about Cartoni Photography
Hi, I can't seem to get the auto release lever to move so I can lock the camera onto the tripod.. Any suggestions?
If you look on the ring that goes around the ball, on the side by the red tension gauge, you'll see an indentation. It is just barely visible on the product shot above.
In the hole, you'll find what looks like an odd shaped bolt. It is actually a threaded post inside a nut.
Use an Allen wrench (hex key) to tighten this post.
Be careful though, a little tension here goes a long way. You should probably turn it no more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn and then test it. If it still isn't tight enough, repeat until you are satisfied.
You should probably also talk to a trained technician at somepoint to see if the loosening is indicative of a larger problem. I really wouldn't know one way or the other. I just discovered the calibration post by taking mine apart.

To get the camera to secure properly to the release plate make sure that the bolt is screwed entirely into the camera bottom and then there should be a larger knob that rotates around the bolt that tightens down to the camera body. What I do to get a really tight fit is point the arrow on the bottom of the release plate labeled lens (that arrow when properly mounted should be pointed towards the front of the lens) to a 45 degree angle to the left of the lens, then I snug down the knob, and then I grab the release plate and turn it until the lens arrow is aligned with the front of the lens. As far as quick releaseing the camera from the legs when secured on the release plate you should be able to pull the lever away from the head and it should simply release the camera with the plate attached.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The Velbon QB-4W Quick-Release Camera Platform is a nearly identical replacement for the plates that come with the Dynex DX-TRP60 tripod. You should have had a spare in the bottom of the tripod bag when you bought the unit. The Velbon QB-4W is available at many on-line sources for about $5.95.
