My wife and i were in the syosset store 2 weeks ago and ended up buying both a d800 and a d7000 . It was quite a day for us ,ha ha ha.

Anyway i have a manfrotto o55xprob tripod and a 685b monopod.

I need to get a better head for the tripod. I find the screw that holds the plate to the

Camera keeps loosening and is quite a pain. I have a 486rc2 which is to light for the d800 and the 70-200mm vrii.

So first question is , i was going to get a 498rc2 but are there better mounting plates?

Or is their a better choice for a head and quick release system?

For the monopod i don't really need a head but i would like a quick release plate.

I would prefer they both match.

We may stop in to the store tomorrow.
