Compatible Sachtler Head and Sachlter Monopod???

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

Unfortunately no replies! I will try posting this into the monopod subforum and hopefully somebody out there will have some guidance.

You could buy a second Touch and Go to put on your DV 2 head. Should work fine as long as you're not already topping out your counterbalance.
