Wrong size for MY Velbon S 6000 but well made OEM part.

I ordered this because it was the platform listed for my old Velbon S 6000 tripod when I was looking for a replacement Revain. I ordered it with confidence when I found a review that said it would fit the S 6000. It arrived quickly but unfortunately the 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" base didn't fit my tripod.

Instead, I ordered a QB-5W with a 1 3/4"

Works for me with modification

I have a car window tripod head that attaches to the car window and provides tripod-like stability when looking through a spotting scope or shooting with an interchangeable lens digital camera.

No Drop Replacement for Ambico V-0542

This plate will NOT fit the V-0542 tripod head without some semi-heavy sanding on the SIDES of the plate. Ambico has straight sides running the length of the bag where this panel is angled. The fit front and back is absolutely perfect, only the sides need some work. Take your time and it will fall off…

  • Quick Change
  • Weak Set

Sony quick release platform included with the Sony VCT-80AV remote control tripod for use with the Sony camcorder compatible tripod which is otherwise a great Product is of great value - easy to lose and extremely difficult and expensive to replace. Even Sony stores, like the huge upscale store at Houston's Galleria Mall, don't carry it, and buying it online costs almost half what the tripod originally cost. Field use has shown that the Velbon QB-4W is a flawless replacement at a fraction of…
