Here's my complaint:

I have two tripod-ballheads by different manufacturers. Both say they are Arca compatible. But the QR plates are not interchangeable. So, being Arca compatible is kind of meaningless. Is that the proprietary standard that you're talking about?

Is the only way to have compatible QR plates to swap out the ballheads, so they have a common manufacturer (and plate)?

First world problems, I know.

What ballheads, and are the plates original or did you buy them separately?
