Looking for some Items


Active member
Hello Chief Photog B-Rollers,

Hope all is going well with everyone! I'm looking for some items for our University media program and I'm hoping some has some stuff in their "junk drawer" that they would be willing to donate to the cause.

Specifically, I am missing the tripod mount plates for 2 Vinten Vision 5Lf tripods that I'm trying to get up and running again.

A bit outside of the Chief Photog realm, I am also looking for a used Autocue or similar TelePrompTer rig (sled, mirror, monitor) that can be had for low cost. There is a homebrew setup I'm trying to get replaced to match the other two Autocue prompters we've got in our studio. If you know of anyone upgrading or replacing their systems let me know I may be interested in the old items.

Thank you for your time!

P.S.--for those that know my background and my former career... the new gig and change is going well! I'm settling in nicely!

post a pic and specific demensions

I have 3 or 4 generations of tripod plates. 1 or two of each. I dont think we ever rolled with Vinton but maybe we have something.

You can buy 'em cheap.

Ask at the nearest rental place.

Prompter is another animal altogether.

Good Luck,
