After many months of deliberation, I've pretty much decided that I'm going to buy an Arca D4 geared head (if I can find one!)...
Anyway, I'm wondering which fitting people here opt for and the pros and cons of either the flip lock or classic fitting. I understand that they both accommodate the standard Arca plates, but which one is more convenient to use in practice? I've used the classic in the past, and I guess it comes down to wether or not you can be bothered manually tightening the lock? Is the flip lock mechanism easy to operate in a hurry and does it have a safety lock? I'm going to use it with my Linhof Techno and Technorama cameras.
Thanks in advance!
