Re: Tripod issue

Arca-Swiss plates will not fit your current head. You might be able to replace just the clamp on your head, but from the photos I can see on the web, I doubt it.

As for L-plates, they are generally camera specific and so don't have the problems of generic flat plates.

More importantly,  they are designed so you don't have to flip the tripod head on its side to turn the camera to portrait orientation.  With an L- plate, the camera stays centered over the tripod head in both orientations.

Maybe there are Manfrotto compatible L-plates available,  but I have never seen one. I think the design of the Manfrotto system precludes them.

Regards,
