I know exactly how to fix this. I have used in the past a type of glue called "Mitre Mate" it is made by no-nonsense I think but I'm sure other similar products are available. It sticks anything to anything and comes with a glue and an activator spray. I've used it in the past for all sorts and the latest was gluing copper pipes to each other. That will ...


I would throw it away and buy a replacement. Even if I could fix it, I don't think I'd trust it to hold my camera. If it breaks again with the camera on it, the camera may only fall a few inches or a foot; after all, it's a mini-tripod. But, what if it breaks and the camera falls those few inches, then falls several feet off of the object you had the tripod ...


I see two ways to fix this. Option 1. A) It looks like part of the female threads (black plastic) are still on the metal male threads. First thing you'll need to do is GENTLY remove this broken piece. You may be able to twist it off with your fingers, depending on how tight it is. Otherwise, take a pair of pliers and twist it off. B) Rotate the ...

Being a beginner you could try the cheaper ND filters available in eBay which comes from China which costs nothing much compared to the real cokin P square filters. Which comes with a bunch of filters and ring adapter. Quality could be bad but not tooo ...


You have a few options - and they all boil down to getting less light into the camera: Smaller aperture using a smaller aperture (higher f-number) will make the image darker, it will also increase the depth of field (usually a good thing in landscape photography) and will reduce sharpness if you push it past a certain value (test with your own camera/lens ...


What you are looking for is a ND filter (Neutral Density). They comes both as a fixed value f/stops and as a variable filter. Which as it says either takes a fixed value of light or a variable amount. I own a variable which after a few test shots can be matched any lighting situation. The fixed amount ND filter, only matches the particular situation where ...
