      Small, but reasonably good for quickly securing lightweight gear. I wouldn't put a heavy camera on one, but certainly a point and shoot, or an SLR with a small prime lens. Probably no good for professional camera gear that uses much heavier construction steel for the bodies of the cameras and lenses. I use them for mounting other gear - a small audio recorder and some other things.

      This is way better than a similar item I had before. It is small, light, and solid for a point and shoot on a lightweight tripod. Really too small for a DSLR but I have been using for a rebel without any problems.

          Compact, lightweight, feels solid. Fine for a point & shoot or small camcorder. I would give it 5 stars if the closing latch could be locked.

            Comments about Slik DQ-10 Mini Quick Release Adapter Set - Small:

            This is the perfect quick release, used on a Revo ST 1000 stabilizer with Sony RX100 II camera. Small size plate doesn't obstruct tilt LCD screen like the larger Manfrotto quick release plate. Plate must be removed from camera to change battery but that's the only minus. I have the SLIK DQ ballhead on the tripod so can switch from pod to stabilizer in a flash. I put the second plate on a fluid head which mounts to the ball head. Nice system for small cameras.

              This is a super lightweight camera attachment that was exactly what I was looking for. Solved a problem of having to screw the camera onto the camera arm in the dark and up in a tree stand.

                    Comments about Slik DQ-10 Mini Quick Release Adapter Set - Small:

                    I needed a compact, light weight quick release and this one filled the bill nicely. Though rated at 3 lbs., I would try to keep the load weight down around 2 lbs. I recommend this "down-rating" of any equipment load ratings for best results, i.e. if something is rated at 10 lbs. and your load is 9 lbs., you'll likely be happier (and your equipment more secure) with the next heavier rated version of the item. This Slik DQ-10 is great for larger point-and-shoots, e.g. Nikon Coolpix 7100, Canon G15, or perhaps an Olympus 4/3 camera. The foot that screws into the camera's tripod socket measures 30x40mm, so it would be a bit clumsy if mounted permanently to a thin point-and-shoot. Also, keep in mind that on many compact cameras, you'll have to remove the foot to access the battery and media card slots. The DQ-10 is well-made and locks securely. Bottom line, use it for the modest task range that it was designed for and you'll be quite happy with it.

                      Works perfectly for raising my dslr high enough to release my battery door without having to remove the camera from my rig. This is a strong piece, and I have no complaints.

                          Not very heavy duty, but super light weight..I put it on a tiny ball head on top of a hiking pole. I can pop my a micro 4/3s camera on it in a second and get steadier video or a macro shot. I have two of these, the other fits on one of those ultra light tripods made of three tent poles.

                                Nikon should have a quick release mount for the SB900. It doesn't. But by combining a Slik DQ-10 quick release,the Nikon SC-17 or SC-28 cable,and the Nikon SK-7 bracket, a functional combination is possible.

                                I bought the Slik DQ-10 for my Tamrac Slingshot tripod. I needed a light and tough quick release for my small DSLR outfit that would match my light tripod. The Slik DQ-10 really met my expectations and more. Not only did it match my tripod, it feels sturdy enough to hold my DSLR. Can't wait to use it on our upcoming NYC trip.

                                        in the era of aggressive airline luggage limits one is forced to trim weight on everything. I ended up replacing all pro-grade sturdy, but heavy equipment with light and small. This one is as tough as it gets for a reasonably sturdy tripod rig. It replaced my other Manfrotto head. Small but holds 5D MkII with 17-40 or similar lens and a microphone.

                                              I needed a small lightweight QR for a stabilizer I built. Fits perfect on my GH1, nice and tight. Only problem for me is you always need to have a quarter, or a washer, handy to tighten the plate.

                                                I mounted the base on a Zip Shot tripod, and the QR plate to the Olympus E-PL2. Perfect fit all around. A coin tightens the metal screw into the camera tripod hole. Connection to base is fast, easy, and secure.

                                                    I was looking for a way to attach my radio trigger at the tripod screw at the bottom of my camera, and in my search for making such a rig, I stumbled upon this tiny quick release adapter set. It's small but well built. My only complain is that the turning the knob takes a bit of too much effort.

                                                    This is way better than a similar item I had before. It is small, light, and solid for a point and shoot on a lightweight tripod. Really too small for a DSLR but I have been using for a rebel without any problems.

                                                      I have there of these and use them with a compact camcorder that weighs aprox 1.5 lbs. They work fine for my application, although I would not reccomend them if your camera or camcorder is over 2 lbs.

                                                          This little unit is a little pricier than the plastic kits but has a very small profile and seems quite sturdy. I like that the plate is thin and doesn't stick out on your gear. You need a coin or screwdriver to tighten it and the black paint chips off the plate a little bit. I think it will last a long time.
