question

The Canon VIXIA HF R500's Instruction Manual says When mounting the camcorder on a tripod, make sure the tripod's fastening screw is shorter than 5.5 mm (0.2 in.) Using other tripods may damage the camcorder (page 176 of PDF). Based on the 5.5 mm recommendation, would the Sunpak 8001 UT Tripod work well with the Canon VIXIA HF R500? I know not to tighten too much, but I'm researching the Canon camcorder for a school. School users may not know about not tightening the tripod screw too tightly. Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
The screws on virtually all video tripods that we offer will be safe for use with camcorders including the Sunpak 8001. To be safe though follow this standard. Tighten the quick release screw into the camera gently until you feel that the screw has started set and just begins tighten.

question

Can it hold a eos 60d with a canon 72mm?
Asked by: Anonymous
The tripod only supports a maximum of 6.6 lbs. The rule is that a tripod should support at least double you are putting on it.The lens you listed is not the correct name for a lens. 72mm is more like a lens filter size.So technically if the total weight you are putting on the tripod is less than 3.3 lbs you are okay. Note, as support weight goes that is not much.

Can I use this for a Celestron Trailseeker 100 spotting scope?
Asked by: Karen
Its not a heavy tripod. Good for cameras without heavy tele lenses.I don't know how big or heavy your scope is. So I can't really answer your question.
