Arca-style plate for old Gitzo ball head
Jul 29, 2012

I picked up a 20-year-old steel Gitzo ball head. I want to put an Arca-Swiss style clamp on it and am seeking recommendations for something that's inexpensive and sturdy. Weight isn't important as the head and legs are already pushing 3.5 kg.

The head has no model number. It's 10cm high, 6cm across the base and weights 670 gm. (I've ordered the missing camera mounting screw for it.)

I won't put more than 4kg of weight on it in the foreseeable future, and this is intended to be a bargain project.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions for something cheap and robust, say less than $60 US?
