Does it freely pan around, or is there some amount of friction (which cannot be changed) while panning?
Asked by: Sriharsha
The short answer is that you can adjust friction to be as much or little as you like. (Now the longer part...) However, this is a ball head with one lever that loosens or tightens movement in all directions. So loosening the lever enough to pan also loosens the ball, making for a very floppy camera mount.

I don't have an arca plate to try, but looking at the head, I do not think it is compatible.
