Just reporting back -- many thanks to you guys for all your help. I received the 3 Manfrotto 577's, put the extra two sliding plates in a drawer, and mounted the bottoms to my tripod, my monopod, and my Spiderbrace.

Everything works great. The only hitch was that on the tripod, although I thought I'd end up with greater flexibility in positioning (since I now have one sliding plate adapter mounted on top of another), I actually ended up with less flexibility, since the two sliding plate lock levers run into each other and into the camera body housing, in certain positions.

I haven't really determined whether this loss of horizontal positioning flexibility is going to be a big deal, but I doubt it, particularly considering the relatively weight of my camera to the size of my tripod head.

... the quick release plate is the same. So I am buying another one for the cases where I will be using two cameras. Then I can pick any of them to be on the tripod or monopod.
I think you need the Bogen 3299


I use these everywhere, on everything, cams, pods, jibs, monitors, magic arms, even in camera case for transport.
