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.
