Good afternoon, evening, morning - wherever you are!

Just around Easter last, I had promised to post photos of the replacement of my Manfrotto RC2 quick-release plate by a RRS one. Well, here they are!

The first shows the old plate. You'll notice one stupid thing and one intelligent one: they don't engrave serial # and the use a second, anti-twist screw. I'll let you decide which is which re the intelligence.

The second image is of the new QR plate sitting on top of things. No second screw, I have used some tread locker.

Third image is the whole stack: Manfrotto 055ProB (hardly visible), MF 438 levelling ball, MF MG468, RSS B2 Pro II.

Fourth image is that of D200 sitting vertically thank to the L-bracket. Yes, I have recently got my MC-30 remote cable and have lost the little cap

This marks the end of a long chase for a relatively good set of legs with relatively good stuff on top... provisorily?

EDITED TO ADD: photos taken with my CoolPix 5400.
