The Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate adds a compact quick release system to any head that does not include one yet.

The 323 adapter allows quick mounting and dismounting of the camera from the tripod head. A 3/8"-16 threaded socket with a 1/4"-20 reducer bushing makes it compatible with any tripod head.

    I use the 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate by Manfrotto with a gang of 200PL-14 Plates for all of my equipment.

    I filed down the top of the plate on my 679B Three Section Monopod (Black) so that I could screw this plate on directly. It allows me to fold out my monopod and slap down my 400mm f2.8 in two fluid movements. I have tried many solutions to this and this one is by far the best. I mount the 200PL-14 Plate backwards so that I can rock the heavy side with the camera attached to the 400mm f2.8 lower at first. That means my right hand on the lens mount with my arm and elbow holding the weight and my left hand holding the monopod and I rock the plate and lock it down. It is just great!
    As a side note, I freaked out the sales people when I put the 400mm f2.8 with a D3 on it and shook the monopod to see if the monopod would snap or if the plate would come off! Everything held together perfectly! (I don't use a ballhead on the monopod because no matter what the lens tends to flop or the head is at some weird angle right when you need to just slap down the lens and go.)

    in order to show you what the "INTERFERENCE" between Manfrotto 323 RC and Manfrotto 681 Monopod, see the attached photo.

    There is significant gap between the plates that cannot be great if you use Manfrotto 323 with Manfrotto 681.

    To solve the problem, I found Oben QRA-R2,which works perfectly with the Manfrotto 681 monopod. Highly recommend NOT to get the Manfrotto copy.

      Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

      This is an easy to use, reliablen cost effective attachment device. I use on my Nikon D3X, D4, 70-200mm, 200-400mm lens, flash brackets, etc. Of course not as robust as more pricey devices but works with my heavy equipment. Have not had a failure in years of field carry.

          Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

          It's not bi-directional. So it takes some time to figure out what size goes where.
          Otherwise, it works really well. Light and compact, yet it holds 70-200 F2.8 L pretty steady.

              I needed a quick release system that wasn't crazy expensive and somewhat universal. This is it. It holds my a7S securely to my tripod and to my shoulder rig. I just wish it had two 1/4 20's for even more stability.

                    First you don't need a 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing as it comes with one.
                    Also note that the bottom is not entirely flat. The release lever's hinge protrudes past flat at approximately 1" off center. Not a big deal as it will fit many bases but I have a Oben monopod that required some extra work extending the set screws past the base plate to lock and support this quick release. The quick release works well but may need some closer attention for secure assembly.

                          The lock for the quick release is hidden under the lever and is least likely to be accidentally triggered open, unlike other quick releases I have seen. Works great.

                            I have placed these on top of older style tripods, gorilla pods, and even 1/4 screws on boards to mount my cameras to. These aren't fancy but they just plain work.

                              Bought it as a spare for my original. Perfect fit and finish as I expected.

                                Great product at a great price. Easy to fit onto custom mounts and Manfrotto heads. I used mine as an adapter to allow Manfrotto plates to be used with a different brand tripod.

                                  We just purchased an Alien Bee Ring Light and the 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate by Manfrotto is the best way for our studio to easily use this light. We are then able to quickly go back to our rolling tripods and snap our camera back on the pistol grip.

                                      I bought a PNC GearBox Cage last year and the mounting screw became stripped. Had no luck finding a replacement without paying for a brand new unit. Luckily the sales associate at the store suggested this item. SO glad that they did, this was a lifesaver. Now I can mount my camera to the rig within seconds and unmount without having to screw my camera in. Saves me time and the headache. Extremely secure and reliable.. so far.
