I'm considering Arca-Swiss Z1 SP but I don't fully understand different options for quick release mechanism. There are three different options:
So far my understanding is that MonoballFix requires different plates than other two. I would like to have a clamp compatible with broad range of release plates and L-Brackets. Especially Kirk and Wimberley. So which one is more suitable for that requirement? MonoballFix or one of other two?
I also found this confusing note about FlipLock and Classic on my favorite retailer's website:
Please note: the safety-stop feature of the Wimberley plates do not work with the new "double decker" Arca Swiss quick release clamps on the Z1 head. The Wimberley plates can still be used, but users must ensure that the clamp itself is sufficiently tight as the safety pins in the end of the Wimberley plate will not prevent it from slipping out.
The side question would be: Is there any difference in Z1+ (not yet available from my retailer)? Is it worth waiting?
