Question about Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera
No instructions came with the tripod I purchased from Kodak for my C875. I managed to set it up seemingly correctly but when I went to remove the camera from the mounting plate, it's stuck. The mounting plate removes from the tripod but the camrera is stuck on the plate itself. I'm unable to twist it off and there's a second little button on the top of the plate that scrapes the bottom of my camera. HELP! How do I get this thing OFF?
The mounting plate may have a small pin with a spring to fit certain kinds of cameras.
Don't try to twist the plate off the camera, that may damage the bottom of the camera.
Instead, the plate should have a slotted screw in the bottom that screws into the camera. Unscrew the bolt with a good screwdriver.
Hope that helps.

It sounds like it's on there really solidly! If you screwed it in tighter than you could unscrew it, you get to lube it carefully (wrap your camera up in cloth) and get a screwdriver or wrench onto the threaded bolt in the plate, maybe having to go so far as notch the bolt if the bottom has nothing to grab and no button to use to get the bolt and plate to lock rotationally together.
If it makes you feel better it's a common problem. Screw more softly, and keep in mind that temperature changes can make things tighter or looser due to differences in materials' thermal indices of expansion.
(Which is to say, cooling it off inside or going out in the heat could fix things just as well as oiling and notching.)
(Also; your current problem should be categorized according to the tripod model, don't you think?)
