Question about AmbiCom V0552 Tripod

1 Answer

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

Where can I buy just this camera mount? The one that screws into the camera or camcorder, then attaches to the tripod. At a camera shop the lady said it was called a T mount. So I'm not sure what to call it...

I see tripods that are sold that do not show it.
Does the tripod come with this or does it come with a camera? I've got a 35mm cannon ( not digital )

I've had both camera and camcorder for a very long time...so can't remember how I got this attachment. My husband thinks it came with the tripod.

Thanks for your help and time.

    Thanks for your help! I checked out ebay and most tripods are MISSING this T-mount. I also looked at B & H photo video. For now will deal with it and maybe I'll get a new one from Santa! :)

    I have an Ambico tripod. Bought it 10-12 years ago. It's in excelent condition BUT the little adapter plate that attaches to the camera and fits into the quick release is lost. I don't know the model number of the tripod and can't find anything through a Google search. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

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

The problem is that i can not use this camcorder in the dark and don't know if it have "focus" and what will i do if doesn't work ????? thank you


You can add a video light to the camera.
Don't worry if there is no SHOE attachment as you can buy a accessory adaptor that will give you a mount point. These screw into the tripod hole.
Low or no light will cause any camera to play havoc with focus.

I need to purchase screw that attaches scope to window mount on a 78-4405


The mount has a 1/4-20 screw that fits most camera equipment. If you have the scope (spotting scope) it should have that hole in the bottom of the mounting ring. If the screw is missing from the window mount then most 1/4-20 tripod screws will work or you may substitute a cap screw and flat washer, to work with an Allen wrench for tightening.

I'm trying to attach a Canon EOS Rebel XS to a Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod, but the tripod socket on the camera is too small. How do I attach them?


You need a head. The tripod has a standardized screw for accepting a tripod head, which is a larger screw than for the tripod mount on the camera. There are a variety of heads available, ball heads, three-axis heads, geared heads, pan-and-tilt heads, and more.

Here's a page showing Manfrotto heads:

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.

I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera


Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.

Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.

You can still order a replacement foot from:-

But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!

I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Attachment at base of camera - SLIK 88M


The standard tripod screw mount is 1/4"-20tpi. 1/4"-20 UNC will also work. You should be able to find such bolts at your local hardware store.

Screwing camera onto tripod quick release


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.
