Question edited for full 'make model (what it is)'.
Question moved from Car Audio to a better category.

My first tripod was a Velbon. When I started wedding photography, I bought a bigger one for a Bronica medium format camera.

They don't really come with manuals, as they are pretty self explanatory. You can tighten them all down and undo one knob and see what moves. Tighten that and see what happens with the next knob.

Basically though;

You have 3 knobs or clips to extend the legs for height.
You have one knob to raise and lower the central pole. Often this can be used as a monopod.
Then you have the 'Fluid Head', with three adjustments;
1. Pan, this allows the head to move left and right.
2. Tilt, this is normally controlled by turning the stalk that you hold.
3. A knob to turn the camera base Landscape or Portrait.
4. Some have drag/friction knobs and various locks.

There are empty promises of manuals in this link, but there is a video on the Velbon Fluid Head.

You need a quick release plate in order to attach you camera to your tripod, it fits into the opening of the adapter on the tripod and you screw the plate into your camera, take a look at www.tripodquickrelease.com they carry Velbon quick releases and adapters.

How much weight will the Velbon Victory 250 Tripod hold?

The tripod will certainly hold this weight. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.

The tripod will certainly hold your Canon camera and lens. However the limiting factor is the head. Without knowing the head you have mounted on the tripod I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it would hold your camera and lens.
