Can I use it with my Mamiya RB67?

Can I use it with my Mamiya RB67?
Asked by: Juan
Benro B1 Double Action Ballhead BH #BEB1Q • MFR #B1 supports up to 24lbs so you could use it with the Mamiya RB67 but because this plate takes a 1/4 pin you will need the following bushing if you do not have one. Oben 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing BH #OB1039 • MFR #OB-1039.
