Questions about ball heads
Jan 15, 2014


I just bought a Markins ball head, but didn't realize I need different plates for different cameras. Each plate is an additional $60 so I'm thinking of sending it back and getting a different one which has a universal plate to mount any camera. A few questions for you guys:

1. Is there a ball head that has such a universal mount to use with any camera?

2. Can the ball head be used with a monopod for shooting action?

Thanks a bunch,
