    I managed to grab myself a bargain at a charity shop a while ago, a Camlink tripod. However, I lost the quick release plate. There is no model number on the tripod so I just picked one that I thought look like a suitable replacement, but it is way too small. There are several different ones available for Camlink tripods but I dont want to have to keep returning them to amazon. I have taken a couple of photos of the top plate (sorry about the quality) Can anyone point me in the right direction? DSC0042.jpg DSC0044.jpg

    Either contact the manufacturer or make one yourself out of suitable material, such as wood or aluminum or brass or PVC plastic. It has been my experience that most charity shops almost at all times have one to five tripods, typically none with their camera release plates... I believe that the loss of the quick release plate is the reason that so many people give their old tripods to Goodwill and other thrift shops.
