    Someone stole my tripod plate, or I misplaced it stupidly and in a panic i immersed myself on the internet. I found "compatible" plates made and shipped from China for about $ bucks, but I knew if I could find the original it would be in B&H. It is pricey, but it's made in Italy, where other great but pricey stuff is made, like the Vespa, Lamborghini and Ferrari. B&H is always my solution, great prices and excellent service.

      Comments about Cartoni A500 Quick Release Plate:

      I"ve tried to find alternative and less expensive plates with no luck. I misplaced my original one, so I bought two replacements to make sure I had one in the future if that happens again. Probably $ would be a fair price; however, manufacturers of plates for other heads sell them for about $. So you can see how they are overpriced. But, like I said, they're the only thing that fits this head.

              I needed a spare release plate for my Cartoni Fluid HD head. This is the only one that will fit it. The plate works as designed. My only complaint with this plate, as most other plates for other tripod heads, is that they are over-priced.

              Man. What a product. I had an incredible need for one specific quick release plate, and sure enough, this was it. I ordered, and received, and used, and my life has never been the same. My friends say things like "you really have it all together now" and "you seem different, like more handsome and confident probably".

              If you are in the market for the A500 Quick Release Plate by Cartoni, this is the one for you.
