question

Does this tripod head accept Manfrotto quick release plates?
Asked by: Luke W.
Unfortunately it does not but if you wish to adapt Manfrotto plates such as the 500PLONG, 500PL, 501PLONG, 504PLONG, and 509PLONG to the Sanford and Davis, do have a look towards using the Manfrotto 577 quick release assembly. This quick release assembly will be mounted above the fluid head.
