    Will this Ball Head mount to a Manfrotto Tripod?
    Asked by: David
    It sure looks like it would mount to my Gitzo, and I had a old Bogen head on that for a long time. The only Manfrotto I have is a lightweight, but the mount looks the same.

    Will the screw knob interfere with a fold down lcd screen on the D850?
    Asked by: Anthony
    Sorry, I do not know the answer to that question. I have the Z6 & Z7 and their screens bend down at about a 45 degree angle and that does not interfere with the screw-knob. Hope that helps --- Jim

    question

    Is anyone using this on a Gitzo GT2545T(Series 2 Traveler)? Or too big for the tripod?
