      This tiny stuff is manufactured with great quality.
      precise cut for screw thread part. entire piece is made of good quality of brass.
      You may be able to find similar and cheaper one.
      However, you get what you paid for.
      This is great product and fully functional, no stress in the shooting set.

      Worked ok for awhile for adapting my Manfrotto studio tripod to a power tilt/pan head, but since it's made of brass, the thread eventually broke and stayed in the pan head socket, making the (expensive) head useless. Could potentially get broken off into your camera thread as well, making your camera unusable on a tripod. Use only for very lightweight applications!

          Comments about Manfrotto 015 Female 3/8" to Male 1/4"-20 Adapter:

          My buddy bought a Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 tripod without realizing he needed to purchase a head unit along with it - and he hadn't budgeted for that, so this was the only thing he could afford.

          It works perfectly for what it is - it's a perfect fit to the camera and to the tripod. However, as expected, you can't tilt the camera at all with this, you'll need to adjust the tripod legs to get the angle you want. Definitely worth getting a tripod head, but if you're in a pinch, this will work.

                      New tripod & old head worked great together, but only after finding the adapter at B&H. Instead of buying a new $90+ head, the B&H adapter solved my problem for under $.

                        Replacing the original adapter on one of my Manfrotto stands. I had a Slider mounted on it, should have taken this off and used the 3/8" tip instead. I learnt that do have a max payload (was my fault though in a rush and did not take the time to unscrew the adapter

                            The video rig I had purchased noted that it had a 3/8" threaded screw instead of the standard 1/4"-20 threaded screw -- no biggie. I ordered this adapter and all was good. BUT it also served an additional purpose that came in handy. I ordered a matte box to go along with the video rig setup and I needed the camera to be a little bit higher to fit the lenses where they were in the center of the matte box instead of at the bottom since the matte box couldn't adjust anymore lower than I had it -- this adapter helped to lift up the camera to accomplish that; problem solved!

                                I used the adapter to attach a small camera to a microphone stand during a recording session. This was a perfect solution for me because I didn't feel like carrying my tripod. I don't recommend it over a tripod but it will certainly stand in as a solid quick fix if you find yourself in a similar situation. It's small so it's not a hassle to have it handy just in case.

                                  It works :-) . Needed to adapt table-top tripods to small ball-heads I owned. Done. I use the tripods and heads to hold and position LED panels (small ones).Thanks for B&H for stocking these useful small parts.

                                    I have to use these on four of my light stands that should have come with 1/4" threads in the first place. I lose them occasionally. A little pricey for what they are. Should be three for $ rather than each.

                                      Comments about Manfrotto 015 Female 3/8" to Male 1/4"-20 Adapter:

                                      I purchased this adapter to mount my flash on a tripod that was equipped with only a 3/8" male mounting screw. My flash required a 1/4" male mounting screw. The adapter worked perfectly. It is high quality and substantial - easy to find in my camera bag. I would recommend this product without hesitation.

                                        Thank g*d for Manfrotto.
                                        They still make gear that is built to perform and last forever. All of their fittings are no exception. I still have fitting from the mid 1980's that get used every day. Well, just about everyday. There are somedays, like yesterday, when I sat behind the computer all day and didn't use the fittings. So, just about everyday.

                                        Either way, they are quality.

                                              These little guys are a crucial part of my strobist setup so when the thread strips or breaks off it is very handy to have a spare close by.

                                                If you're shopping for this, you already know why you need it. Excellent way to convert a 3/8" lightstand thread to a 1/4". Inexpensive, solid brass, will last a lifetime.

                                                      I used this to connect a ceiling speaker to its mounting, as they were different threading. Easy to use and handle.

                                                        How much can someone say about this product. There are lots of uses for it and this one by Manfrotto works. If you need to attach something with a female 1/4-20 to something that has a male 3/8 then buy this.

                                                                    This adapter was exactly what I needed to replace a part that I lost. I use on as small light stand for mainly indoor use with a softbox and my sb900.
