Hey there

I've gotten the head of my tripod stuck to my do I remove it? Will I need to take it to a repairer?

More information is needed:

Is the camera's bottom plate physically stuck to the top plate of the tripod, or is the tripod screw in so tight that you cannot loosen it?

In the latter case a pair of pliers may help - just make sure you turn the screw in the correct direction (right to left to loosen).

Thanks for answering :)

It's the release plate that's stuck to the's stuck tight...would a repair shop charge to remove it? I have arthritis so can't unstick it myself.

If you know of a camera shop in your area, give them a try. If they charge for as minor a service as this, stick the plate back on the camera an find another shop. Any decent person would take care of this just for the good will it brings.
