This maybe a newbie question, so apologies in advance: I bought a second hand Leica Tabletop Tripod with the Leitz ballhead (the older model), like the one on this site: A Bag, Strap, & Tripod | Adam Marelli Photo On top, where the camera goes, mine seems to have some sort of thread adapter that converts the tripod screw into a somewhat wider screw that older cameras used. Since I want to use it for my M8 I'm trying to remove this adapter but seem to be unable to do so - I've tried unscrewing the small screw on the side (I thought maybe that somehow held it in place) and tried it with pliers but to no avail. I would be most grateful for any hints!
I just acquired a genuine Leica leather case to fit my Leica IIIf camera but the fixing screw inside the case is a smaller diameter than the screw thread in the bottom plate of the camera. In every other respect the case fits the camera perfectly. I read somewhere about there being European vs American (?) thread sizes. If so, does anyone know if there is a screw in adapter that can be used to reduce the size of the thread on the camera? Thanks
