Photek Trix-2500 Overview

The Photek TRI-X-2500 Tripod Extender adds a horizontal lateral arm to any standard tripod that has a 1/4"-20 or 3/8" mounting stud. It features a ball head with a quick-release plate. The Extender has a telescopic design and an overall length of 32", and shipping weight is 3.5 lb. For added stability it has a built-in counter weight inside the arm.

Lateral arms enable cameras to be positioned above or below the tripod in a 90° position, which might otherwise be obstructed by the tripod legs.

A quick-release plate (model TRI-X-2500-P) on the supplied ball head makes it convenient for mounting digital, 35mm, or medium format cameras.

question

Hi, can anyone tell me if this will work with a Vanguard Tracker 4 tripod and Vanguard SBH-100 ball head? In advance, I appreciate your time!
Asked by: Nicholas
The Photek TRI-X-2500 Tripod Extender can be mounted on the Vanguard Alta Pro 264AB 4-Section Aluminum Tripod, and the SBH-100 Ball Head could be mounted on the end, yes. Though, depending on the weight of your camera/lens, you might want to hang a bag or some weights from the hook at the bottom of the center column to help give some added stability.

question

Would this be compatible with the Sunpak 7575 tripod? I'm using a Canon T4i camera with 18-55 lens.My goal is to take shots of books and brochures from above at a 90 degree angle.Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
While you could technically mount the TRI-X-2500 on the Sunpak 7575 tripod, the those legs arent the most stable. Your camera and lens are fairly light, but the system might not be stable enough to keep from tipping over. At the very least, you would want to hang something on the other side of the bar to help balance out the system.

question

Hi! I have a Velbon C-500 for my Canon T4i, wanting to be able to shoot straight down colouring videos. Is the arm compatible with the tripod I mentionned? Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this arm would work on your tripod (or any that features a 3/8 or 1/4-20 connection). You might also want to use a shot bag to counterweight the arm:Impact Shot Bag, Black - 5 lbB&H # IMSHB5 Mfr # SHB-5

question

When I opened my Photek extender a screw fell out of the bag. I can't tell if the extender is defective or whether the screw is meant to be adapter of some kind. The screw appears to be tarnished brass and it fits the 1/4 female tripod mount. Does anyone have an answer? I'd be grateful for your help.
Asked by: peter c.
Unfortunately, I cannot provide assistance with this inquiry via this forum. For the above inquiry, it would be best to contact our Professional Photography Department via e-mail at [email protected] with your inquiry, along with images of both the screw and the bottom base of the extender, as well as the quick release plate. The best guesstimate I have is, as the tripod extender is designed for use with both 3/8 -16 and 1/4 -20 tripod screws, you may be referring to the adapter bushing to convert a 1/4 -20 thread to the larger 3/8 -16 thread, but there is no way to confirm via this forum. As such, I recommend contacting the Pro Photo Department as stated above via e-mail.
