No one answered my last enquiry about tripods, so I'm hoping for some better luck this time. I have a Velbon VGB-3 tripod in perfect condition that'swell overtwenty years old. Ideally, I'd like to find a reasonably priced ball-head to replace the 3-way pan/tilt that's on it now, but I don't know if that's possible.
Does anyone know if there's a camera platform with a quick-release plate that I can adapt to this tripod if I can't find a ball-head for it?Something withlevels built in would be perfect as the VGB-3 doesn't have them.
I really like this tripod - it's very sturdy and well made and it still looks and works like I bought it yesterday, so I hate to give it up if I don't have to.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
