Thread: Tripod Troubles

    Default Tripod Troubles

    Well, I kinda snapped a lil peiece of plastic on my tripod heda, rendering it broken. And need a lil replacement plastic thing, as I think this'll be cheaper than a new head.

    The tripod is a Velbon Sherpa 600r.

    Does anyone know anywhere I can get spares for my head? Will the UK Velbon distributor be the only way to get this lil plastic thing?

    thnx, hope you can help...

    i don't think i need to, basically, the lil lever thing that locks the mountaing plate (that the cam goes on) to the head has snapped, and I need a replacement.

    I simply need a spare one, and I'm hoping some how I'll be able jsut to buy this lil thing as opposed to a new head as it seems silly if I can't...

    Generally, I think any bit that's broken means that it's going to be very troublesome and/or expensive, if not impossible to replace, especially if it's out of warranty.

    I had a Slik tripod that had a small crack on one of the leg-locks, and that was enough to render it worthless. (actually, I sold it off for 5 bucks)
