Confusing Bogen & Manfrotto part numbers – solved.

bogenmanbug.gifAlmost everyone has a piece or two of some Bogen or Manfrotto gear. It’s decently built stuff with an affordable price tag. The problem is that 3-digit Manfrotto numbers are now being used for products which used to have Bogen 4-digit numbers.

Well, has a nice conversion chart that seems pretty comprehensive, though perhaps a bit dated. If that page vanishes, I’ve copied it as a pdf on my IEBA web site.
