HQ Tripod

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Mike Ricketts, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. I have been given a HQ-Tripod40 but it has no quick release plate.
    Does antbody know where I can get one and/or who actually
    manufactures this brand. I have googled with no luck so far.

    £35 on eBay, so probably some anonymous Chinese manufacturer and you
    can't get parts for it. Shouldn't be too hard to make a QR plate if
    you can be bothered, I'd have thought - it's just a rectangular bit of
    plastic with one chamfered edge and a groove in the opposite side.

  3. I think that I will pick up a Jessops Universal QR and chop it
    about!!!

    You could probably just bolt one of them through the receiver on the
    tripod, but is it worth spending a tenner /and/ farting around with it?

  5. I have found the same Tripod here in France under the Konig brand. It
    is identical and I should be able to get a QR here.
