Replacement Tripod Stand

  RobCharles1981 21:51 04 Oct 2008

With my Current Webcam which is the Sony DCR SR33 the Camera came with the Hama Star 61 Tripod

That stand only tilts left and right, I require a stand that tilts Forwards and Backwards to mount my Camera on.

Any Suggestions please??

If you turn that handle anti-clock wise a tad, you will get the up/down motion.

as your link says "3-way tripod head" which means, Left-Right, Up-Down, Angle Tilt Left-Right and what it don't say is "With a crank for continuously variable height adjustment of centre column Up-Down.

Meant to say I have one of the Older Models.

p.s. You didn't pay £59.99 for it did you,

The stand came with the Camera with a bundle, I really can't how you can get the "Up Down" motion I had a look just now and can only get "left right" motion?

The rod you use to move left and right unscrews to allow up and down movement.

I do know that,

The rod is only allowing me to move the camera "Left and Right"

I want to be able to move the platform backwards to raise it up, as I intend to record in a Church.

Looking at Picture 2, The Camera is mounted wrong, ie The Battery end should be inline with the handle to give Up/Down motion,
