They will, I am sure. Ms Derbali ( is responsible for the export departement. Very friendly, very helpful

You aren't kidding! It was Marion Derbali who responded to my request through their site for a UK contact. They don't have one so Marion asked that I send a description of the problems, with photos if that would help.

I sent a detailed reply, explaining three issues I had, mentioning that the third one wasn't really a problem for me as I didn't intend to use the tripod in the problematic configuration (with its legs almost flat - one of the legs will not stay in the very shallow position but instead sinks to fully horizontal). I was just telling them so they could feed into their quality control statistics/procedures.

Marion wrote back and said I would need to post the tripod to them for that problem to be solved in their workshop, at no cost. I did not fancy incurring the outrageous UK postal charge that would be involved to send a heavy object abroad, to solve a problem that didn't really matter to me. I asked if the other two issues were in her view just the way the tripod works, or perhaps I had broken something, in either case there would be no more to be done. Or were they faults, in which case could they send me replacement parts I could fit, as that would be easy and economical for them and me?

I just got a message from Marion. They are airmailing me replacement parts.

I'm not surprised you found such positive comments about Cullmann and Marion Derbali. Superb support. I am very impressed.
