question

It seems like most people have issues with the Ball head and mounting plates. I know I can switch out the ball head for my current one but will that increase the weight limit of the tripod?Is the weakest link here the ballhead? IS that why it's only rated for 8.8lbs?
Asked by: Mike Y.
Changing the ball head would not necessarily increase the weight capacity of the legs, you're head may be able to support more, but the legs would still be limited.

question

I don't like the head as it will not pan. Can I remove it and attach my MHXPRO-BHQ2 head instead?
Asked by: David D.
Yes, the head can be removed by tightening the knob and then unscrewing the head from its base. The problem you may encounter is that the other head you wish to attach may not allow the legs of the tripod to completely close, defeating the purpose of a compact, travelling rig.

question

Can I detach the head of this tripod and attach it to the Sirui EP-204S monopod?
Asked by: Jinbo F.
Yes you can. The head on this tripod connects through a 3/8 -16 stud, which is the kind of connection available on B&H #SIEP204SA.
