Does this tripod head only support a single pan ...

Does this tripod head only support a single pan arm? Is there no rosette to add an additional left pan arm?
Asked by: Nathan
This tripod head is made for one pan handle.

question

can the ball mount be removed from the 526 head so it may be mounted on a flat plate? If yes, how?
Asked by: Edmond
I'm afraid not. This head works on tripods that have a 100mm bowl only, you cannot convert it to a flat base option.
