Arca Swiss Z1 or Markins Q20?
Sep 5, 2012

WE have got to the stage of these two heads but are genuinely concerned at some third party forum comments an reviews. For example does the Arca Swiss still lock up? Does the Markins tend to slip on its panoramic base?

If anyone has purchased either and has a view it would be most helpful, we have items selected in suppliers baskets waiting to press the purchase button. The heads are to be used with Medium format and Nikon with 70 - 200VR II on carbon Gitzo 3541.
Views appreciated.
