question

Is the camera plate compatible with the Benro S8 and the standard manfrotto plates (which is used for my 701HDV)
Asked by: Anonymous
This camera plate is compatible with the Benro S8 head, however it is not compatible with any Manfrotto products. The 701HDV head uses the Manfrotto 501PL series plates, B&H # MA501PL.

question

Can the fluid head (top) be removed to be used on another tripod or monopod, or is it fixed?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it can be removed and used on other tripods/monopods, and it is also sold separately if that is of any use. See the link below for details on the head alone:http://bhpho.to/1bLlpTd

question

Would this monopod be usable with a GoPro Hero 3+?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you could use the GoPro Hero 3+ with this monopod but you would need the housing for the camera, as the camera itself has no means of connecting to a monopod/tripod head. The housing features a standard 1/4-20 thread size to connect to most mounts.
