Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I am looking for quick release plate for a Radio Shack RST-84V tripod made in the 90s. I looked all over (local radio shack stores and corp. head quarters) but no one has any info. Finally I came across the Solidex Excel Series Tripod. The plastic molding of the head and the label font where exactly the same so I know either it was Solidex who made my tripod for radio shack, or the company that makes the Solidex tripod. The SOLIDEX EXCEL SERIES TRIPOD VT-86HQ is the one that appears to have

I am using the vivitar vpt 2400 tripod with my "guerilla" paint box [9"x12"x6" deep & @ 10#] the box has a metal universal plate receiver for the bolt on the plastic quick release head [QRPER] I work on a painting on the back of the opened box which is attached to the tripod The stress /racking sheered two of the four plastic "teeth" off of the QRPER head I need a metal version on the head, I think...is there one? What do you recommend?


Hi,\015\012\015\012Looking at the type of work you do , I would recomend for a metal version as the plastic would keep sheering the teeth. Yes the weight would increase by triffle and may be anoying while travelling but its worth it. ... Digital Cameras

I inherited a Manfrotto tripod with a a Manfrotto 3130 head attached. I purchased a very large lens and need to change the head, but I can't get the first one off. This is partially because I don't know how it is attached to the tripod. I would have guessed it simply screws on, but nothing moves when I try to unscrew it. Help please. Thanks, John

Back focus My D300 looked like it was focusing behind the subject. I set up 8 objects on the lawn, each one 3 feet behind the other. I mounted my camera on a tripod, selected a shallow depth of field, and shot each object. I found that at close range, my camera focused fine. The farther away the object, the more the camera focused behind the object. I returned the camera to Nikon for repair under warrantee. They made some adjustments. The focus has definitely improved, but I don't think it is qu

I have a JVC recorder DR MV150B and I am trying to download a movie, but the disk i have is a SONY DVD+RW and the manual indicates that I neeed DVD+RW disks manufactured by MITSUBISH, or HP, or VERBATIM.

I have 2 Canon Power Shot 70 cameras (one was a gift) The oldest I have owned for approximately 4 years...the other one slightly less.
