The Tripod mount is universal. But if you are unsure take the camera with you to the store.

    Well that OK
    How friendly are the local stores - can take your camera to one to try?
    But have no fear as I said the thread is universal
    so just go for the one you fancy

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 size is the bolt and thread size needed for the tripod mount on the Canon G12 digital camera?


Hi Winterhawk.

I think you'll find all camera tripod mount stuff is termed 1/4-20. That's 0.25 inches diameter, 20 threads per inch.

Obviously you want to make your bolt short so you don't crack the camera case, strip the bolt, or otherwise get into trouble.

DONT KNOW HOW CAMERA GOES ON TRIPOD WILL ANY CAMERA WORK ON IT OR DOES JUST CERTAIN ONES WORK ON IT IT IS A DYNEX 60 " DIGITAL TRIPOD


It is usually obvious where the camera goes, so I am pretty sure that what you have is a tripod with a quick release plate that doesn't have the quick release plate fitted. This is very common when you buy a tripod second-hand. The quick release plates get attached to a camera and people forget to reunite them with the tripod before disposing of it.

If you bought the tripod new, then look in the packaging for a plate with a screw to attach to the normal camera tripod screw in socket. There ought to be more than one. The screw is standard throughout the world, except maybe Germany that used to use a different size. Any camera you have will have this socket on the bottom, a threaded hole about a quarter inch (5 or 6mm) in diameter. The plate will be a design peculiar to this make of tripod, and if you lose it or don't have it you will be unlikely to get another.

I have a QS-TM and I want to know if there is an attatchment to let me use this tripod for a canon camera?


Tripod mounts are standard size for most cameras, there are strictly speaking 2 sizes but it is unusual to find a modern camera with the wrong size; it should screw directly into the camera (assuming you have a "standard" mounting plate with the tripod!) If it is too large/small you need an adapter, 3/8" to 1/4" or vice versa, but that would be unusual. Most 35mm camera bodies accept a 1/4" diameter, 20 thread-count screw

Need dimensions for CG-5 cinch-down bolt


Don, if you mean the handscrew that retains the mount in the hub, I believe that it's a common 10mm. Should be able to get one a big box hardware. I have seen CG-5s with the hole bored out and retreaded to 1/2NC to mount on a Meade HD Field Tripod. HTH, Geo.
