      I recently bought a Slik tripod which included this same plate attachment. I liked it so much that I bought an adapter for my other tripod. Now both cameras and tripods use the same system.
      Attachment of the DQ-20 to the tripod is easy - it screws in using the integral butterfly handle bolt just like a camera would. There is no fiddling to make the plate "catch" when inserting the plate with the camera. Just insert and go. Both parts of the system are metal and they hold very firmly. Release is simply a matter of moving the cam.

      Quick Release

      Nice adadpter
      Bit on the flimsy side.
      I think it would be better with a smaller camera, I used a Nikon D2X.

              Bought this to add quick release capability to a very old Redi-tilt Superpro Tripod. The tripod offered me great features but no quick release and no levels. The addition of the DQ-20 gave me both options in five minutes. The Slik unit mounted easily to the tripod with its 4-20 screw making the plate very secure. The dual level now make setting the camera position level is a snap. The quick release release works flawlessly with my Nikon D50. This unit also works with an old Hollywood Pryamid tripod as well.

                I guess I was relying too much on the word "LARGE" that is used to describe this unit. Even though the specs give the dimensions of its size, I went ahead and bought it anyway. It feels like a stopwatch in my hand or a small tape measure. The build quality is fine. Still not sure if I want to hang on to it.

                    I bought the Slik DQ-20 after reading a review for the CruiseCam and it works great. This is an excellent product for anyone with a tripod or other camera support without a quick release. Good fit for DSLRs and small video cameras. Good quality, value and two bubble levels.

                        I finally am using my tripod again. I have one plate on my Camera and one on my Spotting Scope. I can switch back and forth within a couple of seconds! This quick release adapter is well worth the price, and has me excited to hit the trails again!

                                    I also bought a Manfrotto quick release which functions very well but the plate can be oriented only in one position to lock into the receiver; the Slik plate fits in either direction which makes it easier and faster to set up (attach to the camera).

                                          Bit on the flimsy side.
                                          I think it would be better with a smaller camera, I used a Nikon D2X.

                                            I use this with an older Velbon tripod. It works great! I like the slim height and there's a key under the base plate which makes it a cinch to remove from the camera.

                                            Its a bit smaller than i would have liked for my dslr; but it seems to hold it nice and tight. At this price point you can't really ask for more..

                                                  Love this QR, have over ten of these on all our cameras and supports, I don't like have to carry a coin to remove base plates, these have a butterfly key attached. My colleagues love the levels, I don't use them that much but they are useful to some. Study and true.

                                                    Good product for the money. No panning. Seems to fasten well to the mono-pod (tripod) and camera.

                                                      I used magic putty to cement the quick release onto a PVC stabilizer rig I built, it works perfectly. I teach lighting and motion picture and we have now made 4 rigs, the last two using the quick release plate and we couldn't ask for a better product.
