Will this tripod head fit the Ronin S quick ...

Will this tripod head fit the Ronin S quick release plate?
Asked by: Will
Yes however we do not recommend using the Ronin S plate on tripods. This is because the safety catch is reversed on the Ronin S Quick Release plate. On the Ronin S you load your camera from front to back on a tripod you load your camera from back to front. it means that when you mount your camera on a tripod it will face the back of the tripod.

Can I use this tripod system with the Canon XF705?
Asked by: Robert
I think (in my opinion) the XF705 is too heavy for this little guy. I have a Sony A7III, and with a 24-105 or a 14-24 lens, it doesn't "feel" super solid. If i leave it for a couple of minutes the head will creep to a slightly different angle. However, if you want to try it, then, i would suggest replacing the head with a more robust one. The legs should handle it.
