question

Is the tripod plate on this head by chance compatible with the RH25D or RH45D Libec Heads? Or Vice Versa?
Asked by: Eleonora
There are no reports of that being possible. Hopefully, someone has these two heads and can test them.

question

Aside from the price what is the difference between this one at $877.50 AND the Vinten Vision blue3 Head (Black) B&H # VIV41060001 MFR # V4106-0001 at $1228.50 ?
Asked by: Clive
The difference between the two heads comes down to weight capacity. The the less expensive Vision Blue Pan and Tilt Head can handle 4.6 to 11 lb/2.1 to 5.0 kg while the Vision blue3 Head can handle 6.6 to 14.6 lb/3.0 to 6.6 kg. If you wish, you can extend the blue3's capacity by getting the Vinten bluebridge Small Camera Adapter which allows cameras starting at 4.63 lb/2.10 kg.

question

Can you remove the half bowl, to mount this to a flat base?
Asked by: Michael H.
Sorry, no, you are not able to remove the ball base on this video head. There are methods of adapting it however. Please see the following suggestions. The Manfrotto Video Head Bowl Adapter offers no leveling but is rock solid, the ikan Hi-Hat Riser offers some leveling and the Alan Gordon Hi-Hat Support I recommend mounting to a board or other support immediately for it is not stable enough for camera use on it's own. The Plywood Mounting Board would be excellent for this purpose. (The mounting board image below is incorrect.)

question

Is the tie down (bottom bowl clamp) thread on the blue5 M10, or 3/8 ?
Asked by: Weston
Most Vinten tie down threads are a "dual start" M10, which look very similar to a standard Metric M10 bolt, but aren't compatible. The advantage of a dual start thread is that it tightens / loosens faster with half the turning as a single start thread. The MAJOR disadvantage is that it's rare
