Markins ball head and plates
The Markins ball heads have the option of a knob release or lever. With the knob release, is that an unscrew/screw knob each time you want to release/tighten? How does that work? I have a Manfrotto head with an RC quick plate that comes off quickly and was just curious if it's a lot slower than that kind of setup.
Also, do you have to buy a base for the Markins head for mounting on a Manfrotto tripod, or are the heads a standard thread size? Dumb question, but I'm relatively knew to this
