Manfrotto/Benbo Tripod - Alternative Heads


25 Feb 2013 8:21PM
Guy's, I have two tripods a Manfrotto 055XPROB and a Benbo Trekker MK3 Tripod.
Problem is the heads are not interchangeable (Benbo is a smaller thread) and I would like to buy a new head that will fit both.
I do know that there are step up rings available but I would like your opinion/recommendations.
Any good tips on pan-tilt heads ?
Cheers in advance for any input given.

Generally you can put most heads on most tripods, regarding the smaller thread, you just need a 1/4" to 3/8" adapter, about 99 pence last time I bought one.
