These holes are used for mounting the Support Arm for the TCON-300 Tele Extension Lens. The Support Arm has two pins that align to the holes at the camera's base.

How do i attach a nikon coolpix b700 to this tripod

Since you have neglected to tell us the make and model of the tripod, this can only be a generalisation - broken down into easy steps for you.

1) unclip the Q/R plate from the tripod head.

2) screw the Q/R plate to the base of the camera, using the tripod threaded socket.

3)re-attach the Q/R plate to the tripod head.

BTW, when using the camera on a tripod, use a remote control to prevent camera movement.

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.

How do I attach the camera to the tripod?

Check the back of the camera to check if there is a hole with thread.
The top part of the tripod usually comes out. Screw the top part of the tripod to the camera and after that attach it back to the tripod.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

How do you mount an ext 90 telescope (meade) to its tripod (ext field tripod). both are unused out of the box

There are two holes in the base of the telescope that match up with the two thumb screws on the tripod. It's easier if you lift up the base of the tripod a little using the latitude scale shaft.

Read the manual front to back before you use the scope.

I need a replacement tripod socket for minolta stsi

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Depending of your use of the tripod, (meaning, if your a professional photographer, or just a hobbiest = how much money your willing to invest to fix it!) there are a couple things you can do.

Purchase a clamp on head for your tripod. There are many on the web to choose from.
Or: (if you want to truly McGuyver it)
Take off the the screw so the tripod head is flat then use double stick velcro tape. Put one half on the bottom of your camera and the other on the flat part of the tripod. That will do the job for the hobbiest with for very littel money.

Hope this helps.

Look at the bottom of your camera and you should see a hole where a screw would screw into. That should be the screw on the top of your tripod.

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.

How to fit canon s5is on a tripod stand (fotomate)?

I'm not sure what you're asking. There is a threaded tripod socket on the bottom of the camera. You just screw the tripod into this socket. Is that what you were asking?
