  1. RS-1/2 Mounting a nodal rail to the upper "Arca Style Clamp"

    #1

    What is this "Arca Style Clamp"? It has a funny looking protrusion on it (I suppose this has to do with the lens ring mounting?). Despite it's presence, is it still possible to mount a normal dovetail nodal rail on this? I'm looking at the RS-2 as an Arca plate alternative to the NN4 (or upgrading a NN3 using the conversion kit). What concerns me is the upper clamp. I'm also eying the Ultimate M1-S, but the size and weight is a bit much and its' overkill for my needs.

    Any other way of getting a NN3/NN4 sized head with an Arca upper clamp would be perfect for my needs.

    yes, you can mount other rail that has 1.5" width on the clamp. The protrusion tab can be removed.

    Can the RS-1 be mounted to the RD16-II? Or is only the D5, mini, and mini V2 available?

    RS1 only mount to RD5/ RM or RM V2.
    you can request swapping the lower rail with NN3II rail. Then it supports RD16 and RD5, but not RM.
