    Got these extra plates so that I could adapt several things to my FM18 head on my tripod. It is good quality and functions as expected; however, I have also added quick disconnect manfrotto type devices to the plates so that I don't have to slide the plate out of the head when using my cameras. I use the plates alone for my jib and other accessories.

      Easy to use quick plate. Works great with the FM18 Fluid Head tripod. Can remove from camera with a quarter or a key if you find yourself without all your normal tools.

                    I have three of these for my tripod so I can leave them on my cameras. They are especially helpful for taking a camera on and off of a steadycam rig so that you don't have to balance it every time. It does take a bit of muscle to get it in there because it is a metal on metal connection and the metal isn't the smoothest. But it's hefty and sturdy and trustworthy. There's also a loss prevention mechanism to prevent your camera from falling off of the tripod if you forget to lock it down.

                    Comments about Davis & Sanford Quick Release Mounting Plate for FM18:

                    The D&S tripod with the FM18 head is GREAT for the money...but... The plate is too long, in that, it covers my battery (Sony HDR SR-11) release tab which means I have to remove the entire plate to change batteries. That wouldn't be so bad IF the mounting screw had a D-ring!! You need to use a coin or screwdriver to remove the plate. I have replaced the OEM screws with D-ring screws from Sunwayfoto. They work but the Sunway screw is a tad shorter than OEM and the head of the Sunway screw is larger than the OEM which means that the plate will only slide in from one direction. A D-ring and shorter plate option would make this a 5 star for me !
                    My solution will be to incorporate a Manfroto type QR system.

                        I bought this plate for an excising tripod to mount my dslr on for shooting photos and videos. The plate is very well made, the only problem is it doesn't get tight meaning the screw part is too long for the mounting hole at the base of the camera this can be solve with a thin piece of wood with the correct size hole in it though.

                                  Comments about Davis & Sanford Quick Release Mounting Plate for FM18:

                                  Got these extra plates so that I could adapt several things to my FM18 head on my tripod. It is good quality and functions as expected; however, I have also added quick disconnect manfrotto type devices to the plates so that I don't have to slide the plate out of the head when using my cameras. I use the plates alone for my jib and other accessories.

                                    I've used the replacement quick release plate on a couple of shoots so far and it has worked flawlessly.

                                      If you are buying this, chances are you already have the FM18 head and know all about this mounting plate. It is sturdy enough and mounts rather nicely to the head; although it can stick a bit at times, and all you need is a bit of grease to solve that.

                                          the product is perfect but the postage costs were far too high. I get larger and heavier from the USA for less.
