The plates aren't based on the tripod. You have to buy a head separately. That should come with a couple of plates. This tripod isn't intended to be connected to the camera directly. Any Manfrotto ball head would work perfect and they sell these legs with different heads as a combo package.

Yes, you will need some form of head. I believe the tripod has a 3/8" thread for a head mount, the head will have a 1/4" thread for the camera mount.

For video shooting head matters more. I use this tripod with the Manfrotto 701HDV fluid head and it works good.

It will fit but you should look at the Manfrotto Configurator http://configurator.manfrotto.com/manfrotto.html?a=b&matrix=9839 to make a good selection before purchasing.

You can adjust this tripod to a very low position, I use it for macro shots on flowers all the time without any problems.

If you center it between two legs, you can get about a foot into the table (the legs will be under the table). Do not try to shorten the front two legs and leave the back leg long, the tripod will tip forward much quicker than you expect which tends to be hard on lenses :) Also, if you shorten all the legs and extend the center it will tip over. Simple law of physics, nothing wrong with product. You can anchor the legs and get creative. If you shorten the front two legs, be concious of the back leg as you tend to trip on it and send your camera into the table. All this being said, I love this tripod.
