I'm thinking of getting a lever-clamp for my monopod head, bu something puzzles me:
I recently saw some video where a pro photographer was using one, and mounted his camera from ABOVE the clamp. He set it in-place, then locked the lever.
I have a lever-clamp on my tripod rig, but had never tried this before as I prefer to slide the camera on, with a tripod. However, with a monopod, it would be great to come down from on top.
So, I tried it, but it doesn't work with this clamp, which is one of the well-made Asian types. (It has the adjustment screw, so as to properly fit any plate.) If I loosen the clamp enough for the plate to enter from on top, then it doesn't tighten securely once clamped.
I need to know if there is any lever-clamp that would work. Maybe that photographer had some mod done, or maybe he was able to deal with the looseness?
I use only RRS plates, so maybe the RRS lever-clamp?
