Very Satisfied Mother-In-Law from Michigan on 2/25/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I lent my tripod out many years ago. Recently, I gave it to my daughter-in-law without realizing the quick release adapter was missing. Did an online search for the make/model and found the Crutchfield web page. Not only did they have the replacement part, but it was very affordable and delivered in 2 days! My daughter-in-law is thrilled to have a functioning tripod. Two thumbs up award to Crutchfield.

Pros: Hassle free from start to finish

Cons: Absolutely none

works exactly as expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Some one gave me their unused Velbon videomate 600 tripod that was missing the quick release plate. Being new to photography it took some figuring out to first determine what I needed to make it work and then to find the missing part. Trusting the Crutchfield reputation I ordered it, got the part in a couple days, attached it to the camera and just like that the tripod worked fine with the camera. A perfect fit to to tripod. However as a tripod novice I don't know what "normal" is and this is what bothers me about the part's placement on the camera: Off the tripod the attached plate causes the camera to lean heavily on the lens as the plate extends a quarter inch beyond the back of the camera. That minor irritant aside, very happy that Crutchfield had the correct part available and in my hands so quickly.

Pros: Basic & Practical - accurate product description. The plate fits tight in tripod. Easy enough to install and release from tripod as designed. Simple install to camera.

Cons: Esthetics. The plate's design placement on D600 camera.
