I was recently given two tripods from work one of which is a video tripod that looks very well made with a decent head for slow and smooth panning...
The only thing is that on both of the tripods the quick release plates are missing and being and as they are both slightly dated pieces of equipment it means that I am having trouble in purchasing them.
I would like to rig both tripods up eventually but my main interest is with the video tripod due to it's quality of construction. Could anyone point me in the right direction to find a plate for the video tripod, I've looked on some of the manufacturer sites but have very little to go on as there is very little information on the actual tripod...?
Written on the main central column of the tripod is the following information;
SLIK - EASY GLIDE - VIDEO TRIPOD - 3328

You'll get those from the Slik distributor without too many problems....have a look at www.intro2020.co.uk - should be able to grab a contact number from there
Word of wisdom here though - don't forget that because it's a video head the quick release plate is oriented 90 degrees different from what you'd want for a normal camera mount (only affects you if there's an arm on the head - it will point the wrong direction i.e. away from you - hope that makes sense!).
I have a slik video tripod and this is frustrating, but the tripod and head themselves are very solid.
Thanks for the help...
