Hey everyone, I'm looking to get a cheap monopod setup. However I want it to have a ballhead and a quick-release plate just like my tripod. This is my plan: Canon Monopod 500 w/ mini ballhead http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/727775- REG/Canon_4782B001_Monopod_500.html or the Slik Lighty Pod III (w/ ballhead) http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/469630-REG/Slik_618_719_Lighty_Pod_III.html Plus the Manfrotto 323 RC2 quick release adapter w/ plate: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/554141-REG/Manfrotto_323_323_RC2_System_Quick.html Am I right in assuming that either of those monopods will work just fine with the adapter? I want that adapter specifically because it includes and uses the same plate that I already own for my tripod. Also, is there any reason to pick the Slik over the Canon? The ballhead appears a bit beefier/sturdier but I am really unsure. Cheers!
