question

i have Sony SLT A55V is it compatible with the VCT tripod. I got it from a garage sale it seams that I need a shoe ?
Asked by: DARREN N.
This VCTR640 Tripod comes with a quick release adapter that allows you to connect a camera like the Sony SLT A55V to the tripod. If you have this tripod and need a Quick Release Plate for it we suggest the Velbon QB-4W. It will work with this tripod.

question

can we attach vct vpr 1 remote to this tripod ?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony Compact Remote Control Tripod VCT-VPR1 tripod's remote is meant only to attach the VCT-VPR1. So while you can detach the remote from the VCT-VPR1, there is no direct way to mount it to the VCTR640. I do not have the items at hand so all I can do is suggest finding a way to attach the control to the pan handle. One old camera trick is to use automobile radiator hose clamps. Align the control with the pan handle, encircle the two with one or two hose clamps and then tighten. This provides a rock solid attachment thus allowing full control of the tripod and remote. 1 or 2 tape might provide a similar, if stickier, solution.

This tripod has worked well for me at least indoors. It's lightweight and sturdy enough for my canon Xf 105. I've had no problems at all with it.
