according to this:

combination Arca/RRS works without problems.

Dear All,

Planning to buy the Arca Swiss Z1 SP ball head to use with my Canon 1DX. I've read such a great things about the Arca Swiss Z1 (ball design and light weight) that I feel it's slightly better than the RRS BH-55 (although I'm sure I could live with both).

However I believe the Quick Release Clamp on the RRS has a better design compared to Arca Swiss and I think I prefer it also over the screw on design from Arca.

I think one can combine both systems, but I'm not sure. Can anyone advice me on that? (so I avoid buying wrong equipment).

Which model Arca Swiss Z1 SP should I buy (Monoball Z1 sp (Single Pan) Ballhead with 3/8" Screw or maybe the Monoball Z1 sp with Quick Release) and which model RRS Quick Release Clamp (B2 AS II clamp with 1/4-20 screw or the B2 AS II with M6 screw)?

Can you easily combine both or do I need loctite (blue/red) to combine them. If it's too tricky to do than I rather compromise and use one manufacturer.

Many thanks for your feedback.
