After taking the Intro to LF workshop at the conference I've come to the conclusion that part of the reason why I haven't been shooting much 4x5 has been that my equipment has been making the set-up process much more difficult than it needs to be. In particular, I'm using a ballhead that has limited tension control, especially when it's carrying a lot of weight. This makes the task of levelling my Arca a complete pain since I have to carefully hold the camera while I unlock the ball, level everything on both axis at once, lock the head and hope that the camera doesn't shift when I let go. At the workshop I had the opportunity to shoot with a Manfrotto 3-way head and it was a complete joy by comparison to be able to tweak each axis independently. Currently, I'm leaning towards either the Manfrotto 229 or possibly the 410 which would be nice for the geared movements. But, I'm not a fan of Manfrotto's big quick release plates. Plus, as far as I can tell, my Arca-Swiss F's rail is the same dovetail as the Arca-Swiss style QR plates (can someone confirm this?). So I'm thinking a 3-way head with an Arca-Swiss style quick release could be ideal. Plus, that would allow me to get much smaller plates that are designed to fit my 35mm bodies instead of using those giant hex plates. Short of spending ridiculous sums of money on the Arca-Swiss cube head, are there any 3-way or geared heads with an Arca-Swiss style quick release built-in? Or at least with just a male thread so I could add a base plate to it easily?
