I have a Vanguard tripod with a quick release a traditional plate. The lens that I purchase has a Swiss ARCA plate. I like the tripod and I just want to be able to use a Swiss ARCA plate with the Vanguard tripod. What do you recommend?
think your best bet would to buy a SmallRig Quick Release Clamp and Plate ( Arca-type Compatible)
You can attatch your quick release plate that you have to this item to make allow you
to use the Acra items on here.
Hope this help
