I have been using the Manfrotto for sometime now and has quite a few RC2 plates sticking on my cams.
Then i started buying/looking to buy quick release systems and travel tripods.
The only items that fits the technical wants and budgets comes with Arca Swiss style clamps.
Many people on the net says Arca Swiss > RC2 in terms of profile, ease of use, sturdiness. Generally accepted as the "best" solution out there.
It is also generally more expensive than RC2. (individual plates and clamps)
Personally I think the Arca Swiss is more flimsy than the RC2, but its a system that's adopted by more head makers than the RC2/
So I would like to ask for some personal experience here.
Should I switch my current RC2 clamps to Arca Swiss (and get new plates), or
Should I switch the Arca Swiss clamps to RC2 clamps, or
Get a few M-plates. (The M-Plate Is A Universal Tripod Plate for Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss by CustomSLR | 1KIND Photography » Camera Gear Reviews and Deals)
