  1. hi everyone,

    i don't know very much about tripods but i was just given a used
    vivitar v3000. it's missing the quick release plate; is there a
    generic quick release plate that'll fit this tripod? will the
    following work? (from B&H):

    "Giottos Quick Release Plate for All Tripods"

    Thanks~!
     
  2. GOOD QUESTION I HAVE THE SAME SITUTATION ..AND THE O.E.M. PLATES ARE TOO PRICEY.. IS THERE A GENERIC OR OTHER ...THANK YOU
     
  3. I'm on the same quest. Any solutions yet? I'll try to let you know if I find anything.
     
  4. There is a plate made by Promaster that is for a Promaster Digital 4 tripod that will fit with a slight modification. All you have to do is shave off a little plastic from the flange on the plate and you're set. This item is Promaster code 3262 and costs around $12.00 at my local camera shop. Maybe cheaper if you can get it online.
     
  5. I just purchased a quick release for the Vivitar v3000 from http://www.spartanphotocenter.com. The price was $14.99.
