    Hi there,

    When Gitzo says their G2270M low profile magnesium head is, "plate type fixed - with 1/4-20" screw" are they saying the bolt to attach the camera to the head and the bolt to attach the head to the tripod are both 1/4-20" bolts?

    That works for my camera, but need to make sure I order a tripod with the right bolt size for this head.

    Many thanks in advance for APUG's accumulated brain-trust :smile:

    Any Gitzo head I've seen for thirty years has had a 3/8" female tripod mount. =@)

    Right you are John...thanks!

    Found this on a stores description of the G2270M head, "Female Thread size (Connect to Tripod): 3/8"
