Unable to unscrew camera from mounting plate tripod

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?)

Does the company that makes this tripod sell the small square part that screws into the camera?


Tripod quick mount plates (the part that is secured to the camera) are specific to tripod manufacturer. A tripod without a mating mounting plate is pretty much worthless as there is no way to mount the camera to it.

You will need to contact the manufacturer (or a reputable camera store) and provide the model of your tripod and the size of the threaded mount in you camera - most are either 1/4" or 3/8".

Good luck!

What do I do to attach the camera after attaching it to the mount piece?


the quick release plate, that you are calling the "mount piece" will just snap onto the head of the tripod - if you aren't sure, a good way is to take off the QR plate from the camera, and then, with the screw threads face up, see how it fits into the head - many times, you have to engage the spring lever, so when you set the plate inside the head, it will snap locked into place. Then, re-mount it on your camera, and do the same thing, and there ya go.

Remove 3130 head from 3021 tripod


The head is mounted on the base by a 3/8" screw. The head is held in place by 3 set screws in the base. Turn tripod upside down, loosen (or if completely removed, do not lose them) those 3 screws, turn tripod rightside up and unscrew head from tripod. If unable to turn head, loosen screws a little more. If scres are removed and heaf still not comeing off, Use pipe wrench or afjustable pliers wrapped in cloth to preven maring and loosen.

I have a SLIK Single Action Panhead Tripod. How do I mount the camera on the tripod?


it is a quick release plate. there is usually a button or lever to release the plate. you then screw the plate into the bottom of your camera or camcorder and mount the plate back onto the tripod. you can leave the plate on your camera when you store it to allow for faster setup.

Dark pictures with zoom and in low light


Your best bet is to increase the ISO setting to at least 800. Don't use flash unless you're within 10 feet. My idea if a new camera would be a DSLR. Expensive, has a learning curve, but the results would be spectacular.
