Question about Velbon Sherpa DV7000 Tripod

1 Answer

Broken paning head

Our tripod was knocked over and the horizontal panhead (the one that rotates in a circle on a horizontal plane) was knocked off. Inside is some sort of sticky, oily fluid and we can't figure out how it can possibly reattach or how it was attached in the first place. Help please? Thanks!

Tripod not holding camera- tipping forward . bought used w/ no manual, Bescor TH-770. The salesman, and specs say holds 15 lbs. I shoot Canon 5D Mark II, w/ 24-70lens.Thanks for your partnership!

Hi, Paulisa,
It depends which head is fitted to your tripod, but in the illustration from Bescor themselves, it appears to be a pan-and-tilt head. Level with the tilt lever are apparently several adjusting screws - without the camera on board, in case of accidents (done it myself,and it's not a good feeling !), tighten all of these and see if the head will move in any direction. If it does, then the head has issues and should be returned.
If the head cannot be moved, then just experiment until you find out which adjuster affects movement in each plane - my guess is that it may be the lever to the left hand side of the head (not the one at the base, which probably affects movement in a horizontal plane).
When you are sure that you have sussed it, try again carefully with the camera attached - if there is still unwanted movement, then the head needs adjustment.

Targus Tripod TG-P60T is binding while panning horizontally, how can I resolve this issue?

There are two issues I'd like to help resolve here.
They are 'binding while I'm panning' and 'binding when I start to pan'.

Binding while I'm panning...
There is a large knob on the side of the panhead that needs to be loosened slightly. I have seen some folks loosen the panning handle because they believe it to release the panning mechanism.
Also, be sure that the camera you are using is not too heavy. There's a 5lb (2.2kg) limit and that can also cause undue strain.

Binding when I start to pan...
When panning, I advise our students to begin their pan a couple of feet ahead of the actual scene they'd like to pan and finish a couple of feet after the scene. This allows for a smooth pan after you overcome the inertia in getting the pan head to move and doesn't result in a jerky stop. It's straightforward to edit out these lead in and lead out sections.

Hope this helps.

Digipower TP-TR62 manual needed

The handle probably operates the pan and tilt operations, and the head rotates through 90 degrees for vertical shots. The QR plate screws into the tripod socket on the base of the camera, then clips to the tripod head.

Broken quick release plate lever on Vanguard PH-32 3-way Photo Magnesium Alloy Panhead.

Unfortunately, Vanguard does not sell replacement pieces, you may have to ship it off to them in order to get it fixed. It's either that or you can buy a new pan head or quick release adapter. You can find those at www.tripodquickrelease.com, sometimes though pan heads don't come off of a tripod.

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.
