Sony Tripods & Accessories / Tripod Release Plate

1 United States

SONY TRIPOD owners. Just a money saving tip so you don't get taken by Sony. If you are replacing a release plate on your Sony tripod, DON'T BUY IT from Sony.
I called the company, and was told a replacement plate for my $99 tripod is $29.99
plus a heafty shipping cost. The SAME plate under the VELBON BRAND cost me
$5.50 from B&H Photo .(Others list up to $12 as the highest price)
My complaint is that Sony would not tell me the model number of the part and insisted that this is their price. I did a website search and discovered that Sony buys this part as well. So, do your homework before you go directly to the manufacturer (seller!) and keep the profit for yourself.
