    Looking at replacing my tripod and I'm a Manfrotto sort of guy :) I'm considering the 410 junior Head but the quick release plate looks sort of huge! Anyone using one of these care to comment ?

    It's a big heavy head and you need reasonable legs to go with it. Yes the plate very big. I had one for 6-8 years.

    But it's also great for fine adjustment, panning, etc. But in the end I started not taking it with me.

    What are you using it for?

    I have thought off and on about getting one. But the weight has been a deterrent for me, in addition to the need to add/modify to have arca QR capability.
