Do you think this Swift Clamp and the Acratech Quick Release lever clamp will work with Really Right Stuff camera plates? I want to buy a RRS Monopod combo, but all my plates are Acratech.
Asked by: Jorge C.
From RRS's website: There are a number of mail-order companies that sell gear based on the Arca-Swiss quick-release standard. In addition to Really Right Stuff, companies such as Wimberley, Markins, AcraTech, Foba, Novoflex, and Kirk sell gear that is commonly marketed as Arca-Swiss style or Arca-type or Arca-Swiss compatible. In general, most of this gear is cross-compatible (but many Novoflex plates do not fit our screw-knob style clamps). For example, a Really Right Stuff L-plate will work just fine with the quick-release clamp on your Markins ballhead. And your Wimberley lens plates will work great with any Really Right Stuff clamp and ballhead. An exception to this is our lever-release clamp; read more about our lever-release clamp compatiblity here.Really Right Stuff plates do not work with any Manfrotto, Bogen, or Gitzo quick-release clamps. Those companies have their own proprietary quick-release systems. They are not Arca-Swiss compatible. Only Manfrotto plates work with Manfrotto clamps. Only Bogen plates work with Bogen clamps. Only Gitzo plates work with Gitzo clamps.
