| p.1 #1 · 5D MK III and Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Tripod Head |
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 http://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.
