Using a Markins Ball Head on Slik Pro 700DX Tripod
Hello. I'm new to this forum and have gained an interest in the Markins M20 ball head. I currently have a Slik Pro 700DX tripod, which I hope to eventually upgrade...but for now it mainly sits in the closet unused as I don't like the pan and tilt head it came with. So...here's my question: Can the Markins M20 be used on that tripod? Thanks for your assistance in advance. yert3

Can you remove the Pan and Tilt? The M20 has a 3/8" female threaded connector on it, if you have a 1/4" or 3/8" stud available on the tripod you should be able to get the M20 on it (a 1/4" stud will require a common adapter). I've heard of people also attaching a ballhead to the top of their P&T head in a pinch, while not ideal it can get you into the game.
