    Arca Swiss Cube vs Photoclam 'Cube'

    Can anyone tell me if there is any functional/structural difference or performance difference between the arca swiss cube and the photoclam version of the cube. There is a $500 difference in the price.

    Patents, integrity, copies etc etc.

    There was a whole long set of threads about this here a while ago. Try a search on photoclam and I'm sure that it'll come up.

    This'll get you started (and everyone else probably ): http://www.getdpi.com/forum/medium-f...-save-%24.html

    Btw, I have a Photoclam Pro II Gold head and it's every bit as good as my RRS & Arca larger alternatives. I can't speak for the Multiflex though.

    Please lets not go through this whole thing again. As the earlier thread shows, there are at least two schools of thought regarding the ethics involved in this choice, and as I recall, people were getting pretty pissed off by the time the thread went on for a while.
