    Hi

    My Hasselblad 501C/M is due to arrive tomorrow (exciting stuff). Just wondering what kind of adapter would I need for my Manfrotto ball & socket head (3157N) so I can use it with a tripod?

    A similar picture is attached:

    Thanks

    The quick release plate ("adapter") pictured in your illustration will work fine - Hasselblads work fine on tripods that don't use quick release plates.
