    Hi, all - do not use an Acratech ball head with spring loaded safety pin in conjunction with a Clear Sight 500 Series Hasselblad to Arca-Swiss mounting adapter!

    The limited clearance for the mounting cl& between the 500 series feet means that you can only slide the camera into the head. When the pin engages the hole in the plate, you cannot remove the camera without manually disengaging the spring pin with a knife blade or something similar.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Follow-Up to Warning - Great Company to Work With

    Hi, all - The folks at Acratech were most accomodating and offered to exchange my V2 with the safety catch for one without, solving my problem. Easy, the way it ought to be!

    Cheers,
    Mike
