    Switching to a 3/8-16 mount on a Technika?

    Hi (Bob) - so if I needed to use a 3/8-16 screw to mount my Technika IV to a tripod, is there any easy way? I'm looking and guessing it requires a replacement part....

    If the camera has a 3/8"-16 thread and the tripod has a 1/4"-20 screw, just use a reducing bushing. Readily available from any retailer.

    Then you'll need to replace either the camera bushing or the tripod screw.

    It's possible to make an adapter plate, but it would be at least 1/4" thick, which might be a problem.

    I ended up sucking it up and just getting the $37 screw from Sinar Bron.... pardon the pun... it is for a nice $$$ Foba head so everything is expensive.

    Since I use RRS mounts it's a non-issue.

    Doesn't the STIV already have a bushing to reduce the 3/8 thread to 1/4??
