Arca swiss clamp system

DOES ANYONE USE THE ARCA SWISS CLAMP SYSTEM ? IF YOU DO, WHAT TRIPOD DO YOU USE IT WITH.

I AM FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO FIND AN ARCA CLAMP TO FIT MY MANFROTTO 332RC2 AND ALSO MANFROTTO 410 GEARED HEAD.

I HAVE A MANFROTTO 190XPROB AND ALSO A MANFROTTO BEFREE TRAVEL TRIPOD, IT WOULD SEEM THAT MANFROTTO DON'T DO ANYTHING TO ADAPT THEIR TRIPODS / HEADS TO USE THE ARCA CLAMPS.

Re: Arca swiss clamp system

Hi Woody, I used Manfrotto 190 and 155 Carbon Fibre tripods and use Giotto heads that have an Arca clamp, they screw straight on to the tripod it self. I also use a Giottos ball head on a Manfrotto Clamp, I'll try to post some photos, if I can find out how to .

Re: Arca swiss clamp system

Thinking about it Woody, I bought a Giottos MH658 which is the base and slide (Arca Style) which fits on to the screw of my Manfrotto Monopod 694CX, this should then fit any head you have that has a 3/8" thread, although if I remember the Giottos came with a 1/4" adapter bush.
