I have a Series 1 pole with a pole rotator and foot plate on the bottom and a Quick Mount Mini Adapter Plate on the top.
I want to mount a RS-1 without rotator to the top of the pole. Will the RS-1 without rotator mount directly to a Quick Mount Mini Adapter Clamp or do I need an some kind of adapter?
With pole adapter the connection is fixed to top of pole. With QMM you can take off the whole RS1-S with camera mounted off top of pole, which I feel is the most comfortable and secure version. You have to change the lens ring position from normal position for R1 to another one for R1-S. Then the foot is mounted to the opposite side of Nikon white camera mount point on the lens. You can measure H for NPP as shown and add 6,5mm for reference offset point of large side of the vertical rail. So add H = lens axis to bottom of foot + 6,5mm = LRS on R1-S. Test with the well known tutorials.
Hope this helps a little bit.
