View Full Version : HowTo mount NN5 on ballhead?

04-28-2009, 03:59 AM
apart from my question http://nodalninja.com/forum/index.php?topic=696.0 the other problem i have is mounting the NN5 onto my Ballhead.

Currently i own a 055probx manfrotto tripod and a Benro KS-1 ballhead -> http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/498020-REG/Benro_450_622_KS_1_Ballhead_with_Quick.html

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/images345x345/498020.jpg which comes with a universal (i suppose) qr plate http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/items/498026.jpg.

The problem is, i can't easily switch between mounting my d700 on a ballhead or NN5 without changing plates.
Are there any additional plates i could mount to the camera, that would be universal for the ballhead and NN5?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Will the benro plate fit any other mounts, or is it unique.?
If it will fit a manfrotto or Arca swiss Threre might be a solution.
