Camera/ Tripod thread sizes.

There are 2 different size threads that are used on tripods and cameras. The larger one is 3/8-16 and the smaller one is 1/4-20.

Hi Scott(s).......

If you're missing the 1/4" screw, screw/ pin plate and VHS pin assembly, don't despair.

(It sounds like you have the twin 3/8 screws instead)

E - mail:

Peter.Harman@VitecGroup.com

with a covering letter explaining the situation.

Peter is the Product Manager for Vinten, UK and can sort you out.

Let us know how you go.

Canon also sells a tripod adapter plate, the TA-100, that has both 3/8" and 1/4" threaded sockets on the bottom. However, there are probably other adapter plates that would be cheaper. This one is a quick release plate.

Here's something else:

Scott,

I also purchased a vinten a few months ago, that came with the 2 too wide screws.
I looked at purchasing the VHS pin adapter, but found it too expensive for a screw+pin.
What i did instead, i bought a few Manfrotto/Bogen 357 QR-adapter's, it was a lot cheaper then 1 vinten-plate and now i can switch my 2 camera's between all my devices (tripod, superclamp. glidetrack, time-laps-motormount, etc.)
