      Comments about Velbon Quick Release Platform:

      I got a nice sturdy tripod at a rummage sale, but it was missing the plate. Web searches gave complicated
      cross referencing,foreign web sites and higher prices than I expected. B&H had a simple reference chart,and
      a picture of it.

          simple part, I have a Great Velbon tripod but lost the Quick release platform. Got around to looking for on and found it right of the bat and in stock for a reasonable price at B&H. Fast Delivery simple transaction and exactly what I needed. Couldn't ask for more. The Prompt service is what makes the part GREAT!

                Comments about Velbon Quick Release Platform:

                I'm very happy with this. I do short films and recently I found a tripod for $[*] on [*]. It turned out to be a Velbon S-900. This piece fits my DSLR Rebel camera and the tripod perfectly and is made to last. You don't need any tools or anything to take it on and off. A quarter works to tighten and loosen the screw. A quarter for God's sakes. I'll be buying more from these guys down the road. They can be trusted.

                          This fit a fluid-head tripod that I bought at the flea market for $3 so it was a total steal. Love that the top of the quick release is cork so it doesn't scratch the camera. Wish the screw had a handle for hand tightening (it has a flat head screwdriver thing, can still be hand tightened though)

                            Had an older Velbon video head missing the Quick Release plate. Found one at B&H - exact OEM replacement. Fits exactly on first try. Allows me to put the head back in service, saving cost of buying whole new head. Kids can use for their video projects without breaking bank on gear!

                              I thought the customer service was outstanding. I will be back to use this company in the future, for any other needs I may have.

                                I bought a Pro Albinar 9500 35mm/Video Tripod for very cheap at a garage sale. I got this Quick release platform for it as the original was missing. It fits and works perfectly! I mostly use this for general landscaope and solar system photos (Moon, Sun, Sunset) and other things where holding the camera is not an option. the only Con I can think of is that it cost twice what the used tripod did. Not really a con though. I would absolutely buy again and/or recommend to a friend.

                                    I purchased this Velbon platform with the help of your sales staff, who confirmed that I had selected the correct model# for my specific tripod.
                                    Received it a short few days later.
                                    It is a perfect fit and works flawlessly.
                                    Thank you.

                                      I lost my plate long time ago and now I can use my tripod again...

                                        I purchased this part as a replacement part to use with my tripod. It works great. I like the fact that it is a quick release.
                                        I haven't any complaints.

                                                fits my Velbon Victory 451 tripod perfectly. So glad there was a replacement available as I got the tripod ages ago.

                                                    We have a velbon victory 480 tripod that was missing the quick release platform. We ordered 2 and are very pleased that they fit perfectly.
