    Hi, just checking.. I'm looking at the Sirui range of tripods. Apart from getting the tripod+head, I need the plates too right ?

    So for e.g my damage should be

    N-1004 + G10 $199.00
    TY-50 $23.00

    Prices taken from https://www.facebook.com/tkfoto?sk=app_6009294086

    The plates are more of a spare thing, if you want to use another camera on the same Ballhead but don't want to shift plates around the camera bodies, then you can buy a spare to attach to yoru other body.

    Or well, if you lose the plate - though I don't see how that could happen.

    Not impossible, if u use a sidekick, u will have to remove your plate. And the one attaching to your tripod collar is likely a longer plate. That's when "accident" happens.

    Agreed.

    My concern would be with the top heaviness of a stainless steel top combined with the lightweight bottom. the centre of gravity is rather high.
