    Arca D4 Clamp Question

    Hi guys, newbie to this forum.

    Recently purchased the fabulous AS D4 with the classic screw knob which I absolutely detest with a passion!
    So looking to swap it out for a different clamp (luckily the fastening bolt is easily extracted) and was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions other than the RRS types as these are very expensive to source from the UK.

    Appreciate any advice.

    Many thanks
    Neil

    Neil,

    I have an extra RRS lever release clamp. M6 screw. B2 AS II H

    I rate it at an Exc++ US$50 total shipped to you, if you are interested.

    There is a catch. Paypal or other to me for US$25.00

    And the remaining US$25 balance, hit and pay the Paypal donate button for the GetDPI website on the upper right.

    PM me here if interested.

    Just a note, if you are using a Arca camera (rm3di etc.) don't move to the RRS style clamp as it will not adjust tight enough, and allows slippage of the camera. Any other camera should be fine.
