Hey there

I've gotten the head of my tripod stuck to my camera...how 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).

Heya

Thanks for answering

It's the release plate that's stuck to the camera...it'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.
