        Comments about Matthews Baby Plate - 3":

        Great and sturdy for mounting a background pole directly to the wall. Once it's on it great, but not so functional if you need to change the paper often. Especially if your pole is 10 feet long and you don't have an assistant...

              The only great baby plates are by Matthews, American is comparable, but I find Matthews to be more reliable. Until a light comes crashing down, you won't know what I mean, but don't try any other brand. Matthews also has excellent customer service.

                Comments about Matthews Baby Plate - 3":

                Mounted the Matthews Baby Plate to a pancake to use as a high hat for a light which also doubles as a flat surface for a monitor or notebook when flipped upside down and attached to a grip head. If your intention is to use this baby plate often with a Matthews 2 inch grip head, I would recommend getting the same product but with a longer stud.

                  Comments about Matthews Baby Plate - 3":

                  Allows an overhead light boom to save lots of floor space when used in my small studio with a low (unfinished) ceiling. This plate supports a monopod held with a lite-tite adapter, super clamp and snap-in pin. Works great with a monolight with a small softbox for lighting small products. Can carefully loosen the umbrella adapter to swivel boom without it dropping off the baby plate.

                    It's grip gear - so it is what it is. I trust MSE products and purchase them often. I don't like it that the chrome (or whatever) finish is coming off so soon (less than one year of light use), but then again, it will peel eventually.
