Does anyone know if there is a cheaper tripod adapter mount for the 300 than the Panasonic SHAN-TM700 Quick-Release that runs $449?

Thanks,
Jeff

I bought one from Omega on eBay. It was sold as a demo . . . I've already received it--looks brand new! They have one left at $399. It's eBay item number 390049491327

Best.

Sorry to tell you that used Sony VCT plates are on Ebay often for as cheap as $50.00 and work the same.

This is one case where the Sonys are numerous, have been around for more than a decade and are much cheaper than the Panasonic piece.

you may ask to your dealer, because im in ARGENTINA!! i can buy it for $370 (shan tm700) in an official panasonic importer. so i dont get it, an so expensive T_T.

Dan can you give me a specific model of the Sony VCT plates?? i saw a few in BH but very diferent in price.

PS: tried to call you, no luck XD maybe tomorrow, maybe someday... (ROLF)

Sorry Shapna,

I had a household emergency with a water leak that came up. I am leaving town for the weekend tomorrow, call me Monday.

Oh yeah, Emmet has a correct one VCT 14U but I think that there are other VCT variants that will work as well. Ebay is your friend.

Thanks,

Dan

I got a Secced one - 110UKP. Made in China but looks and feels pretty solid and they make great value tripods too (but didn't risk that...) BD
