question

Does anyone know what other head plates can fit on this tripod head?
Asked by: Trevor
At this time, no other plates are known to work with this tripod head. One solution is to get as many quick release adapters and corresponding plates you need for your cameras, tripods, gimbals and stabilizers. Here is one example. Axler QRA-501S Quick-Release Assembly B&H # AXQRA501S and Axler QRP-501S Quick-Release Plate (Standard) B&H # AXQRP501S.
