Ballhead on G1227 and clearance
Feb 13, 2014

Hi -

I have been researching online re the pros and cons of two different ballheads: Markins Q10 and RRS BH-40 to mount on Gitzo 1227.

I'm leaning towards the Markins Q10 with RRS plates and clamps for a D600 and D300. The clamp suggested for the Q10 is the RRS B2 LR II clamp.  Is there a clearance issue for those that have this exact set up on the Gitzo 1227?  I was told that the RRS B2-40 already on the BH-40 would be fine.

If I order the Markins and go with the RRS plates and clamps to put on the G1227, are there additional screws etc that I need to order as well?

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance...

Regards -
