Product Highlights
  • Replacement for Oben Ball Head Models BE-106, BE-106T, BE-108, BE-108T, BE-113, BE-113T, BB-0, BB-0T, BC-0 & BC-0T

The Oben QR-10 Quick Release Plate is a replacement camera plate that fits the Arca Swiss-style quick-release element of Oben's BE-106, BE-106T, BE-108, BE-108T, BE-113, BE-113T, BB-0, BB-0T, BC-0 & BC-0T ball head models. For camera stability, the top of the plate features a rubberized surface. Two studs on the bottom of the plate help prevent the camera & plate from sliding all the way forward or backward out of the ball head, in case the head's clamp is inadvertently left loose.

The plate is 1.95" (49.5 mm) long, and fits any standard Arca-type quick release mechanism.

      Using as a cheaper alternative to the name branded quick release plate which I already own. This is being used on a second camera body. It works but it is not the same fitment as the Arca Swiss model. The problem is that when adjusted to fit this quick release plate on my tripod head; swapping cameras with the Arca Swiss brand the camera slid out and almost hit the concrete.

      If you buy multiple quick release plate's I suggest buying the same brand and model for all of your cameras so you can avoid a mishap due to slightly different adjustments of the quick release for each plate. Now I have to adjust the head each time negating benefits of "Quick" release. Love being able to hand tighten this model over the Arca Swiss plate.

      I bought this as an extra quick release plate for the Sirui K-10x ball head. At less than half the price of the equivalent quick release plate by Sirui (TY50), it's very tempting to buy this instead of the TY50. But comparing them side by side in my hand, you can definitely tell the quality of the QR-10 is not as good as the TY50. It is not as sturdy, slightly looser tolerance in the screw area, and doesn't have the anti-twist pins. So while I do plan on keeping this and use it for backup cameras, if I need another quick release plate, I would just cough up the dough and get the sirui one.

        Comments about Oben QR-10 Quick Release Plate:

        Being new to Arca Swiss ball heads, I was a little taken back by the fact that I could not find quick release plates made by Arca Swiss! But these work great and made with the best of materials as I was able to crank down on it to lock it in without fear of stripping threads. I have worked with them for over a month now and have plenty of confidence that they will work well into the future. I also would like to add that I like the Arca Swiss quick release / locking a lot more than the ones I've used from other brands. I'm sold.

        Requires Allen Wrench to put on Camera

            Comments about Oben QR-10 Quick Release Plate:

            The QR-10 Arca plate is a problem because the 1/4"-20 screw requires an Allen wrench to tighten when connecting it to the camera. The QR-10 has no screw slot (e.g., for a coin), so is useless in the field without an Allen wrench. Accordingly, I am replacing QR-10 plate I received on an Oben Ballhead with the Induro PU-50 or PU-60 Arca plates.

            Comments about Oben QR-10 Quick Release Plate:

            The first one I purchased had a butterfly knob, no tools needed. The recent one I bought had an Allen screw to mount on camera. The QR-20 plate is better, has butterfly knob.

                          Had to buy a second plate to go with the one that came with my tripod to attach to a large lens. This one came with a screw that you can tighten by hand rather than the allen head. Fits perfect.

                            I purchased the plate as a backup to the one (and only one) plate that I currently have to my Oben Tripod. I highly recommend having a backup just in case you lose your main one or if you have a second body so that you don't constantly have to switch out the plate. I keep one on my camera and the other on the sleeve of my 70-200 zoom lens.

                              The thing that is great about this purchase is I got the exact part I'd lost to my tripod, quick and easy at a great price. When I lost my quick release plate (in some canyon in west Texas?), I figured it would be tough to get the right replacement in time to get the family holiday pictures for the Christmas cards. But all it took was a short conversation with the B&H salesman and a few days later I had exactly what I needed.

                                I needed a second quick release plate for my second camera to attach it quickly to my tripod. The first one I had was attached to the camera with an allen wrench and it was a pain to do. This new one has a twisting lever to attach it and you don't need an allen wrench. So much faster to use, and attaches quickly to the tripod.

                                  Use it on an Oben BB-O Ball Head. I was surpised to see it had a manual hand type bolt to place it on the camera which was a neat handy contrast to the one that came with the ball head that requires an allen wrench. Very strong and well machined.

                                    The original release plate with the Oben head requires an Alan wrench to attach. This quick release plate has a screw. I can now attach the original to one of my telephoto lense rings "permanently" and use the quick release plate on my camera body.

                                      I just purchased a L-Bracket to use with my Oben Tripod and I need a second quick release plate for the L-Bracket. I had been using this product with my Oben Tripod attached directly to the bottom of the camera and it had a problem. The problem was the screw that attaches the quick release directly to my camera would sometime come loose. This problem seems to be resolved by installing a L-Bracket and a second quick release. It seems the problem was most likely cause by the the surface on the bottom of the camera being to slick. The L-Bracket has a cork surface that mounts agains the camera bottom. I have not had no problem withe attaching screw coming loose.

                                          I bought this as an extra quick release plate for the Sirui K-10x ball head. At less than half the price of the equivalent quick release plate by Sirui (TY50), it's very tempting to buy this instead of the TY50. But comparing them side by side in my hand, you can definitely tell the quality of the QR-10 is not as good as the TY50. It is not as sturdy, slightly looser tolerance in the screw area, and doesn't have the anti-twist pins. So while I do plan on keeping this and use it for backup cameras, if I need another quick release plate, I would just cough up the dough and get the sirui one.
