    Hi Grant

    I met you at the Transport Museum at Hogmany. you were very genrous with your advice, try to help a novice like me (Nikon D5100).

    What a fantastic collection you have, very impressive. Especially being in so many different aspects of photography. Thanks again.

    I’m thinking about buying the Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Tripod Head to use with the 5D MK III. And I notice the tripod head doesn’t allow you to tilt the camera back 90 degrees, so you can point the camera straight up. My current Manfrotto head is like this, so I have to mount the camera the “wrong” way 180 degrees on the plate/head. My question is, if I did the same with the Manfrotto 410’s supplied camera plate, would it interfere with the battery compartment ? The camera mounting screw isn’t central on the plate, usually the “long” end (which is curved) points away from the battery compartment, switching it around, would cause it to be pointing towards the battery compartment. The photo on this site shows the head https://www.manfrotto.co.uk/410-junior-geared-head The normal alignment would have the back on the camera next to the bubble level. But, I’d need to mount it with the lens over the bubble level. Thank you.

  6. Hi Cora.

    Sorry for the delay in my reply to you, unfortunately the comment you left on my post had gone through as spam on my blog, which I have only just checked now.
    Anyway, I noticed you got the required information regarding the head from FM forums, which I also visit from time to time.

    Hope you got the required adaptor/plate for the Manfrotto and everything is working well for you.

    Grant.

    I have been receiving the scottish field for many years and think it is one of the best however in the article stating that young scots prefer to remain in the union I have my doubts
    whenever I have spoken to many young folks they want scotland to be free so I do wonder who did the survey
    (Scotland forever) .
