3/8 to 1/4 thread adapter?  

In the panorama field, hardware is also part of the success. You can discuss here about it: camera, computer, pano head, anything

3/8 to 1/4 thread adapter?

by gkaefer » Wed May 11, 2011 12:05 am

I did damage my only thread (I suppose its a 3/8 to 1/4 " adapter).

the thread is screwed into my merlins adapter at the bottom so I scan screw my merlin on my tripod directly or if a ball head is mounted I can fix the plate at my merlin.

I could not find an onlineshop in austria/germany where I could buy some new ones... any idea?

(sorry for image quality, did make them handheld with 100watt energy lamp and 1/20-30 aperture...)

Liebe Gruesse,
Georg

3/8" and 1/4" both have at least two different thread pitches. I think the right one for photography is the "coarse" thread, a hardware store may have several different adapters. If you buy in a photo shop, they will (I hope) have only the one with the right threads.

Just remembered the 1/4" screw is a 1/4-20 (20 is the thread pitch).
