    I have quick release brackets on all my cameras and tripods. I can just move a camera from one tripod to my handheld flash bracket and back to another tripod with ease. I use a Canon 5D Mk II for stills on a tripod and for video on a Cinevate slider and a video tripod. The quick release bracket allows me to easily move from one tripod to another, even a shoulder bracket.The 394 QR adapter has a bubble level and both a 3/8" and 1/4" screw included which is great. On one of my brackets the pad comes up on the edges with a lens mount that is smaller than the plate and is also hard to release, but all of the rest are fairly easy to detach and the pads are fine. The plate snaps on easily and attaches very tight. The brackets are very well made and the price is good. [...]

    I bought this based on the low profile design to use atop a 4-way macro focusing rail. It is low profile as described, but its design is off a little in my estimation. If the camera is mounted as per the instructions with the horizontal spirit level towards the rear of the camera and the QR lever to the left, the plate only supports 1 inch of the camera body to the right side of the center of the 1/4"-20 mount screw. To the other side of the mount screw is 2 1/4" of plate support.....huh? Am I missing something? I don't think it would be too much to ask to extend the right side of the plate another 1/4" at least to be in line with most manufacturers standard size QR plates which are 2 1/2" plates to fit 2 1/2" clamps. I doubt a camera would come lose, but the stability would be enhanced by this ever so slight modification and it just makes me wonder. BTW - I switched to another model of QR clamp/plate for this application.

      Comments about Manfrotto 394 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 410PL Plate:

      There isn't much to say about this item. It does exactly what it needs to do, hold the camera firmly in place and quckly release the plate with the press of a button.

      It's the perfect size for a DSLR camera, and is designed so that you can still access the battery panel without needing to remove the plate or moving it all.

            This is a quick release device for tripods. It is a heavy duty, quality product that operates as advertised. It has two (2) leveling bubbles to ensure perfect alignment. Plan to order a second one.

            Comments about Manfrotto 394 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 410PL Plate:

            It's manfrotto, if you are getting this then you probably already have one of their tripods, and you know the quality. Bullet proof.

                Comments about Manfrotto 394 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 410PL Plate:

                This is my first quick release. I bought this to mount my T3i onto my Autopilot stabilizer so I wouldn't have to keep re-balancing it. Works great. The lever in which you have to release is a little stiff, but I'm not sure if it's just not broke in or if that's the normal operation. Either way, I'm happy with my purchase.

                Installed the whole unit on my recent monopod that I purchased, works great. My tripod has a manfrotto ball head with the 410PL plate, I can now easily switch between monopod and tripod without replace the the adaptor attached to my camera.

                    These are a great quick release plate system. I bought three of them right away and they are very useful and worth the price. I use these for my tripods and glidecam and can easily maneuver with ease. Especially for weddings they are useful because you have to be able to work on the fly. I would recommend these to anyone.

                        I got 4 of these to put on my different setups. Now I can move my camera very quickly from glidecam to tripod to monopod to shoulder rig very quickly and with little hassle. I also like the built in bubble level. Makes balancing my glidecam easier.

                                I have these mount on my monopad, tripod, steadycam and shoulder rig.

                                They work fine with any DSLR, Sony FS700R and RED.

                                  this thing is absolutely rock solid. I use it on a glidecam for attaching my 5d mark iii. Works like a charm!

                                      Wonderful product. It is just too bad it is needed. Why can't everyone agree on a standard quick release plate design. Good Heavens.

                                        I use this on the cheese plate for my Glidecam hd 4000.

                                        I have a manfrotto monopod that uses the same plate, so switching is such a breeze.

                                        Its low-profile is definitely worth buying.

                                        works well just a little to bulky to keep it on your dslr at all times

                                        Comments about Manfrotto 394 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 410PL Plate:

                                        I'm using this to mount my DSLR "video" camera to my shoulder mount.

                                        I really like that the bottom is flush, as opposed to the Manfrotto 323 / RC2 quick release plate. This makes it easier to mount to various accessories.

                                        It is easy to get the camera to lock in place, & stays solid, but the biggest negative I've noticed is it can be hard to pull back the lever to unlock (this is why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5). But once you get the lever started, it is easy to remove.
