Will the RRS or Kirk custom place work with the Markins ballhead? (Please excuse my ignorance here...) Then I will definitely get one.


Markins, RRS, and Kirk all are "Arca-Swiss" compatible. If you use the screw clamp, there is no problem at all interchanging plates and clamps from any of these. If you have a lever-release clamp, some plates may not work due to differences in manufacturing tolerances, and different companies interpretation of the standard.

But if your Markins clamp has a knob on it (rather than a lever), you are fine. You can use an "Arca-Swiss" style plate from any of the other manufacturers (even Arca-Swiss).
