Hi, I just bought a gitzo 026 and was wondering if it is possible to mount a ball head if i want to remove the center column? i can take it out, but am not sure how to secure the base plate back on to screw my ball head on. i tried a search, but couldn't find anything. i see on gitzo's website looking at some of the current tripods, some have a ground set option. I was wondering if anyone knows if the hook that is used for that setting would be compatible with the 026 and if so, where I can inquire about it. Contact Gitzo directly or do i have to go through a dealer? Thanks.
