Ever since I made a quick note on the Manfrotto 222 ballhead (3265 / GRIP ACTION BALL HEAD W/QUICK RELEASE PLATE), I was bothered by not having an anti-twist plate. Well, now I have to apologize for having been unable to update Nikonians on the subject.
There is an anti-twist plate for that ballhead, and any other head using the 3157N type plate; it is called "the architectural rectangular" plate. I bought one some time back and am delighted.
The Manfrotto number is: 3157NR / ARCHITECTUAL RECTANGULAR PLATE -1/4". It provides proper camera alignment for 90° vertical architectural shots with 35mm cameras. It is supplied with 1/4" camera screw. (also with 3/8 but with another number).
You can find it under "Quick Release Systems", "Other Plates" in the "Tripods, Heads & Monopods" section of the just revamped Bogen site
Have a great time
