Compatible Sachtler Head and Sachlter Monopod???

I posted this in the main camera support section but did not receive a response. Hopefully somebody here might be able to shed some light on my problem!


Hi All,

I recently bought a Sachtler tripod with the DV 2 II head.

It seems that the plate provided with the head is not compatible with Sachtlers (only) monopod (Monopod 2 CF). As I understand it, there are two head systems that you can use with this monopod, namely the Betacam version and the Sandwich Touch & Go quick release system. Unfortunately, neither of the plates provided with this monopod will accept the plate provided with the DV 2 II head.

Does anybody know a way that I can get a quick release system going between the DV 2 II head and a monopod (by any manufacture)?

All suggestions / advice welcome!

Keith

Hi Keith.............

Just a word to the wise, multiple posts will get you a swift rap over the knuckles from the mods - I've found this one three times.

Suggestion: Do a "mea culpa" by clicking on the little ! in a triangle in one your posts and asking pretty please will they remove the ones not in "Tripods, Sticks and Heads".

Just a suggestion.
