I finally got a tri-pod so I can start doing night photography. I payed about 50$ for mine, but then lost that little part that connects the camera to the tri-pod. Of course they don't give you an extra, or even a way to order another spare part. So because I lost a little piece of plastic, that costs like 40 cents, I have a useless 50$ tri-pod. What's the deal? The only thing I can think of, is just getting a new one, then taking out the little part I need, and returning it for my money back. I'm going to ask the clerk guy If I can buy a new part first, but who knows.
