Hey everyone— I've found this tripod: http://www.amazon.com/Vanguard-Tracker-2-Aluminum-Tripod-Panhead/dp/B000EDJHS4/ and this monopod: http://www.adorama.com/VGAP364.html I like them both. I like the price ranges of both. However, I'm looking for a set that will take the same quick-release plate so I can waste less time switching plates when I go from tripod to monopod use. Is there any particular set that fits this description? Obviously I want my tripod very sturdy, and tall is good too. Another thing I love about that tripod is its ability to work in reverse (see the 2nd image on the page I linked to). So if there's a monopod that shares a plate type with that tripod and is at least as tall, it would be perfect. Suggestions?
