    Does this ball head work with other brand plates. I have a Sirui quick release platform which I like because it features a secondary release button. Will this fit on the BH-55 ballhead?
    Asked by: Bob
    This head can work with other quick release clamps, but that clamp would need to have notches on both sides of the mounting hole for the best fit.
