Do these heads fit most tripods? I have a [cheap but sturdy] Maxell tripod that needs a new head, would a ATH H91 ball head fit my tripod base?

It depends on the tripod. Alot of cheaper tripods don't have removeable heads. If your tripod head comes off, there should be either a 3/8" or 1/4" mounting screw on which a head would mount. The Amvona heads, as well as most other interchangeable heads, mount on a 3/8" screw. If your tripod has a 1/4" screw, you can get an adapter sleeve to change this to a 3/8" screw.

Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread

There was only one 1/4" screw, but it just clamped the head onto the base. Here's a pic of the base:


There are no screws or holes on that cylinder piece. The head simply slipped over it and a screw was tightened to keep it from coming off.

I have the exact same tripod... just missing the quick release plate, so replacing the plate or pan/tilt head would both be decent options... did you ever find a solution?

You ain't kidding - this sucker is heavy!! I replaced the regular head with a Bogen 322RC2 head and now it's even heavier! I carried it once on a hike through the Hocking Hills (Southeast Ohio) and it nearly killed me. I keep it around and still use it in the studio, but I don't travel with it any longer.

I now use my older Slik Sprint Pro with the 322RC2 head on it as my "hiking" tripod. It's lighter, smaller and easier to lug around than the Dynatran.
