I went and bought one of those nice berlebach tripods from calumet, oly to disco ver the tripod had a 3/8" thread and the camera has a 1/4" thread! Local camera shop says no such adapters exist (in the opposite direction, plenty, but not thi s way).
It looks to me like the 1/4" thread on the camera (A Calumet cc400) tripod mount is just a metal piece screwed into a 3/8" thread... but I can't get it to budge . I tried liquid wrench and a pair of pliers, and only succeeded in scratching i t up a bit.
Does anyone know whether I can in fact unscrew it (and convert it to 3/8")?
Or alternatively, a place where I could find a 3/8 tripod mounting block for the camera?
