Velbon Victory 451 camera tripod. Need manual please.
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.
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.

Does black and white photography use the same
Black and white photography uses a much more basic enlarger, you will notice that some enlargers have knobs on the front that are magenta, cyan and yellow these are color enlargers. A color enlarger can be used to develop black and white images but a color image cannot be developed using a black and white enlarger.

What is an enlarger?
As an engine is the heart of a car, so is an enlarger the heart of a
darkroom. It is the instrument through which negatives are brought to
life. Along with a good lens, it is the enlarger that the rest of the
darkroom is built around. A darkroom can have the best plumbing, a great
stereo and stainless steel trays, but without a good enlarger and lens,
it can be hard to produce quality images.

My Nikon FE film advance lever is stuck. It does
Have you tried fresh batteries and setting the shutter speed dial to M90 or m250 whichever you have? If this does'nt work you can remove the camera bottom plate and gently pull a lever away from the advance cog. Some times things get out of sync in there. Sorry I can't be more specific but I did this many years ago. Good Luck.

Minolta maxxum 7000 troubleshoot camera wont take pictures
There are several possible reasons, it could be the body or the lens. Check the shutter blades without film. Are they smooth and in place, (flat)? It could also be related to the film, a mis-load of the roll. The lens could have some failure, possibly try another.
Shutter release button on my
When the batteries in an F3 die, though the film can still be advanced,
the photographer is limited to a single mechanical shutter speed of
approximately 1/60 second. It is tripped by a secondary fully
mechanical shutter release. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive because it uses the drivers power...Pls replace the batteries as one of the following is okay.....
- Battery: Choice of one 3V
lithium battery CR-1/3N type,,
- two 1.55V silver-oxide batteries SR-44
Hope this helps!
- two 1.5V alkaline batteries LR-44 type
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
