I've obtained some new monopod and tripod heads and have a few items that are now surplus. These items are a Manfrotto 3229 Monopod Head and 2 Kirk Arca Swiss style Quick Release clamps with adapters for Manfrotto heads.
Manfrotto 3229 Monopod Head with RC2 Quick release plates. This is a tilting head that makes it much easier to position your camera for a shot when using a monopod. It comes with 2 quick release plates so you can keep one attached to your camera and the other attached to a second camera or lens with a lens collar. The head has a lever type release for the QR plate, and a locking pin to prevent accidentally releasing the plate. I've used this with everything up to a D4 and 120-300 f/2.8 lens. It's great for shooting sports. $30.00 including USPS Priority Mail shipping to 50 states and PayPal fees.
Also available, 2 Kirk SQRC-3157 Arca Swiss compatible Quick Release Clamps. These are 2.5 inch wide clamps with a bubble level and have an adapter that allows them to be put on Manfrotto ballheads and monopod heads that use the Manfrotto RC-2 quick release plate. The adapter can be easily removed and the clamp can be used as a normal QR clamp on any ballhead with a threaded mounting stud. The clamp has a 3/8" threaded hole, but each clamp also comes with a 1/4" to 3/8" brass bushing for mounting on heads with a smaller stud. It also comes with an Allen wrench to remove the bolt holding the Manfrotto RC-2 adapter. New, these sell for $130, the QR clmap alone is $85. Price is $40 each including shipping via USPS First Class mail to 50 states and PayPal fees.
This shows the Kirk clamp mounted on a Manfrotto Monopod Head with the RC-2 adapter.
If you want the monopod head and one of the Kirk QR clamps, the price of the package is $65 including shipping and PayPal.
Or you can buy the monopod head and both Kirk clamps for $100.
