The Giottos MH-655 Quick Release Assembly consists of an Arca-type quick release adapter and a matching camera plate. This system follows the industry-standard Arca Swiss design, and is compatible with quick release components from other manufacturers (e.g. Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graf/Studioball, Wimberley, etc.).

The sliding camera plate is locked down by turning the side-mounted locking knob. A safety push-button positioned on the side of the adapter adds additional security. A vertical bubble level is incorporated within the locking knob, and a horizontal bubble level is positioned on the base of the adapter. Anti-twist reversible tabs on the plate can be used to prevent slippage when using the head in a vertical position.

A finely machined set compatible with Arca-type components from other brands.
Calibrated quick release plate, with 1/4"-20 camera screw.
Camera Screw(s) 1x 1/4"-20
Plate 2 x 1.6" (50 x 40mm) WxL

      Comments about Giottos MH-655 Quick Release Assembly:

      I bought this quick release system for my Sony A7R. I wanted something small that wouldn't get in the way. I use a Metabones adapter for my Zeiss EOS lenses on the A7R and the Giottos fits perfectly attached to the 1/4-20 socket of the Metabones. There's a little bit of slide, but no more than about an inch because of the small size.

      Because it's a solid piece and has a failsafe lock and fits my needs perfectly, I give it a 5 star rating.

      Small , Neat , Heavy - But Hmm

      Comments about Giottos MH-655 Quick Release Assembly:

      This MH-655 comes with a 3/8 screw . If your tripod , or tripod head , has a 1/4screw sticking up you'll need to order the 3/8-to-1/4 reducer bushing B&H # GIG1141 ($4.95) . Now , once arrived , I checked the operation and found the safety pin sticky perhaps due to a too-weak spring . Secondly , the leveling bubbles are not as visibly positioned as on the MH-652 Quick Release System - so I returned this MH-655 unit and will stay with the somewhat larger , but lighter , handier , and more safety foolproof MH-652 System .

      Expertise: Medium level experienced amateur photographer

      Problems Encountered: The camera plate is released by anti-clockwise turning of the serrated knob . It is then finally fully released but pressing the rear facing red button . This button releases the slider safety pin . The pin was sticky . The machining may not have been correctly done - OR - the spring against the pin was not strong enough . Or both reasons might be the case . Anyhow , I was not confident about the safety where the plate and camera might be unexpectedly released . Reader , please understand that my comments may pertain only to the unit that I received . Finally , the MH-655 release is not as quick to use as is that of the sister Giottos MH-652 System .

      Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Manfrotto QR systems and the Giottos MH-652 QR System .

      Items I Recommend: I recommend the Giottos Ballheads .
