Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera ?

Unable to unscrew camera from mounting plate tripod

\015 No instructions came with the tripod I purchased from Kodak for my C875. I managed to set it up seemingly correctly but when I went to remove the camera from the mounting plate, it's stuck. The mounting plate removes from the tripod but the camrera is stuck on the plate itself. I'm unable to twist it off and there's a second little button on the top of the plate that scrapes the bottom of my camera. HELP! How do I get this thing OFF?\015

Answers :

The mounting plate may have a small pin with a spring to fit certain kinds of cameras.
Don't try to twist the plate off the camera, that may damage the bottom of the camera.
Instead, the plate should have a slotted screw in the bottom that screws into the camera. Unscrew the bolt with a good screwdriver.

Hope that helps.
It sounds like it's on there really solidly!  If you screwed it in tighter than you could unscrew it, you get to lube it carefully (wrap your camera up in cloth) and get a screwdriver or wrench onto the threaded bolt in the plate, maybe having to go so far as notch the bolt if the bottom has nothing to grab and no button to use to get the bolt and plate to lock rotationally together.

     If it makes you feel better it's a common problem.  Screw more softly, and keep in mind that temperature changes can make things tighter or looser due to differences in materials' thermal indices of expansion.
(Which is to say, cooling it off inside or going out in the heat could fix things just as well as oiling and notching.)
(Also; your current problem should be categorized according to the tripod model, don't you think?)

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 vivitar telephoto lens for the camera, but not sure how to mount the lens. If I take the outer ring off, I dont know if the lens that came with the camera is suppose to also unscrew, or if there are other actions I need to take to use the new telephoto lens

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.


Sir/madam,please do contact Panasonic with your complaint, this is the only way we are ever going to get this problem resolvedthanks ... Digital Cameras
