heads and quick release plates
This will probably sound stupid, but how does a ball (or pan/tilt) head attach to either a tripod or monopod?
I picked up a cheap velbon monopod at Walmart but plan on purchasing a bogen monopod (with ball head) and either a sunpak fieldmaster or a bogen tripod. I would like to be able to interchange the ball head on either the pod or the tripod.
Now, how likely is that the quick release plates would be able to fit say then bogen monopod and like the sunpak fieldmaster tripod? Well what I'm trying to ask are the quick release plates able to be used on any head that accepts quick release plates or are they brand/head pacific?
