I see there are many quick release mounting pieces out there on E bay etc. My concern was finding the correct piece for this tri pod. Are you certain this one will fit correctly?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

Yes, this is the correct part - you will also see in the description that it is for Sony and Velbon.
