Is there an adapter for attaching a camera which already has an Arca/Swiss plate to the FSB-8 head? Or, could a QR clamp (e.g., RRS 60/80mm LR QR clamp) be mounted on the Sachtler Sideload QR Plate? Any other suggestions?
Asked by: William E
You could always mount something like the Sunwayfoto Arca & Manfrotto Compatible Clamp, BH #SUMAC14, to the top of this tripod. https://bhpho.to/3l0p740

Is this a good enough head to handle a fully rigged out FS7 with a 70-200 zoom or cinema prime lens? Thanks
Asked by: Pedro
This has a load capacity between 2 to 20 pounds. Just as long as your rigged out camera does not go above 20 pounds it is a great choice. Keeping it below 20 pounds should be very possible with the FS7 and that lens.

Im thinking of using C200 with Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 lens, so pretty heavy set up. Currently using Manfrotto 502 and when I touch the camera or the lens, there is shake at 300. Can this avoid that?
Asked by: Vijay
300mm is a pretty long lens. Even though the Sachtler FSB-8 fluid head is solid and robust, if you're going to start fidgeting with the camera you'll most likely get some jiggles. It's necessary to keep hands off the camera for still shots and be very, very careful with a light touch for moving shots.

This is a 75mm Ball Head, if you have the Gitzo SYSTEMATIC 75mm Bowl Head Adapter for Series 5 Tripods, B&H # GIGS5321V75, with your tripod this head should fit. https://bhpho.to/2SbifSv

Not familiar with this tripod. But if the tripod has a 75mm bowl, this head should fit and work just fine.

question

Will this head be able to hold a c300 mkii with a 70-200 and audio accessories?
Asked by: tom L.
Absolutely. My rig I've built up is at lest 12lbs I'm guessing more. The counterbalance in this head is abundant. I can see how some might want more fluid drag adjustment, but let's face it, small platform tripods with a light payload can only handle so much. I'm pleased with this head.
