Does the ball head accommodate Arca-Swiss ...

Does the ball head accommodate Arca-Swiss camera/lens mounting plates or only Manfrotto plates?
Asked by: Rick
Although the ball head has a clamp that accepts Arca type plates aside from Manfrotto plates, it has not been tested specifically with the Arca Swiss brand of plates. Your results may vary.

Does the ball head accommodate Arca-Swiss type ...

Does the ball head accommodate Arca-Swiss type camera/lens mounting plates or only Manfrotto style mounting plates?
Asked by: Rick
While they advertise that it works with Arca-style plates, I was unable to mount my Tamron 150-600mm telephoto, because the Manfrotto ball head has a mounting screw that stands proud of the base of the mounting plate. It does work with the SmallRig L-Shaped grip for my Nikon Z fc, as this grip has a gap at the bottom where the protruding mounting screw can sit.

Since the head is unique does that also mean you cannot swap heads? It implies that.
Asked by: Bruce
On my copy, the ball head is removable. Just unscrew it, and replace it with another one if you want.
