Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I am trying to find some technical information about and the specs for a Solidex Excel Series VT-87HQ tripod. I found one in my father's attic, but am trying to figure out what it's maximum load bearing weight is, what the actual tripod weight is, what size the base mount and head mount threads are, and what the product dimensions are. I can't seem to find any information about this tripod online and do not even know when it was made or what it's worth. I am trying to figure out if it will work


Answers :

Here's a bit of specs from trade.co.nz:
\015\012
\015\012Solidex Excel VT-87-hq Tripod
Tripod has clipout legs to 56"
Also has a wind up head which extends the Tripod to 68"
When colapsed 27"

\015\012Here is the webpage: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-photography/Camera-accessories/Tripods/auction-170492628.htm
\015\012As you can see, the unit was in great shape and still didn't sell- not good news for the value determination.
\015\012Here is another webpage that has some specs on the tripod:
\015\012http://www.amazon.com/Solidex-VT-87HQ-Camcorder-Panhead-Height/dp/B001KZ37IQ
\015\012This was a pretty heavy duty tripod, and I would think it would accomodate the DSLR's of today, since cameras weighed a lot more back in "the day".
\015\012Couldn't find any load bearing specs, but I'd run it by a camera repair shop and see what they think. They're the experts, and would have some ideas about it's capacity.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.
