    Extra Plate for Manfrotto 393

    I have three plates; one for my Minolta 300mm f2.8, and one for Minolata 600mm f4 lens. The reason I have one on each lens is because I want to change quickly sometimes. I have to tighten the screws a lot, with a screw driver -- not just using the knurled knob, to keep the plate fixed to the lens on the bigger lenses.

    On my 600mm lens there is enough space between the mounting holes on the lens support piece to use both a large mounitng screw and a small one which gives a rock solid mounting to the 357 plate of my 5.5 kg (over 12 lbs)lens.

    I got my 3rd plate for my camera mounting to the fantastic Manfrotto 393 gimbal mount because I can't imagine using any other tripod-head combination now that I have used it.

    However, I wish the 357 was about 1/2 as long for use with my camera. Though it is perfect for the big lenses. But maybe I will use this third plate for another lens one day, that's why I haven't cut it off yet.

    The 357 plate is solid, and comes with two screws of each size. I feel confident my fancy lens or camera will not fall off and come crashing down when I put my lens with plate attached on my 393 gimbal mount. There is a spring loaded pin which must be depressed to remove the lens from the 393 gimbal mount.

    The entire Manfrotto 393 with 357 plate is solid and accurately manufactured. It is a dream to use. I do not want anything else as far as gimbal and mounting plates goes.

    Bigger than original

    This monopod plate replacement is a lot bigger than the original and the SONY PD150 camera only allows one screw so it keeps coming loose while out in the field.

      The perfect QR plate for my application but both packages I ordered shorted me on screws. The ad says two each size camera fixing screws. Both my packets contained only one each. Otherwise, it's a great product.

        I have been very pleased with the Manfrotto gimbal head and original quick release plate.

        To keep changing lenses simple, I decided to purchase this additional plate to place on an additional lens for ease of changing in the field.

        Works great.

              To avoid rendering your tripod useless get a plate for each camera. Manfrotto has cheaper plates making this easy!

                Comments about Manfrotto 357PLV Quick Release Plate for Video:

                Originally I purchased a Manfrotto 357 Pro Quick Release Adapter with 357PL Plate for my Canon 40D & Sigma 150-500mm lens, which I attached to Manfrotto monopod. Upon realizing the utility of the quick release system, I purchased additional 357PL plates for all of my DSLRs, including one for my Canon 70-200mm 2.8L beast. Using the plates, provide a stable level position for resting the DSLRs on flat surfaces. Having become comfortable with the Manfrotto 357 Pro Quick Release Adapter with 357PL Plate on the monopod, I purchased an additional one for my tripod. Now I love the ability to quickly switch between lens, DSLRs, & mounts. Having recently acquired a Canon 7D MKII, I attached it to my 70-200mm 2.8L with a 357PL Plate. Talk about a heavy combination of gear, approximately 5lbs, the Manfrotto 357 Pro Quick Release Adapter with 357PL Plate appears to be up to the task.

                              I originally bought this head for photographing birds. It works very well for this application. Along the way I also found it to be a great spotting scope mount. Just as in photographing birds, I can pan around the large flocks of waterfowl that gather in this area each winter very easily. It stays where I stop and has fluid movement. My only negative comments would be that there is not a flash bracket available to get flash over the lens ( had to build my own). And the rubber pad on the QR plate will not stay glued down. Other than that well worth what I paid for it.

                                Keep your camera and lens firmly in place.

                                  This monopod plate replacement is a lot bigger than the original and the SONY PD150 camera only allows one screw so it keeps coming loose while out in the field.

                                        Leave it to Manfrotto to put out an economical product that [...] works perfect! I mounted my DVX 100B on this plate and haven't taken it off since. I use it with my Manfrotto 510 Pro Video Fluid Head (I will never understand why they discontinued this great model), as well as with my rails and bellow matte box system from Cavision.

                                            I use this plate with my 200-400 f4 Nikkor & 3 Nikon bodies. It has plenty of back & forth movement. Makes it easy to balance the lens in the Manfroto Gimbal mount.
