Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate

You Pay: $24.99
Product Highlights
  • Replacement for Oben Ball Head Models BC-139, BC-166, BB-2, BB-2T, BC-2 & BC-2T

The Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate is a replacement camera plate that fits the Arca Swiss-style quick-release element of Oben's BC-139, BC-166, BB-2, BB-2T, BC-2 & BC-2T 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 2.75" (69.9 mm) long, and fits any standard Arca-type quick release mechanism.

Length 2.75" (69.9 mm)
Camera Mounting Screw 1/4"-20

      Comments about Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate:

      This plate works fine but one glaring problem is that the screw that attaches the plate to the camera or lens requires a hex wrench. Why not the standard coin/slotted screw driver or a thumb screw? I tend to remove my plate depending on use and it would be nice to not need a hex wrench. Redesign it and it gets a 5 star rating.

        Comments about Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate:

        What can I say, this quick release plate does the job great. Nicely built, sturdy material. Price is a plus.
        Once I put my camera on it and mounted it on the tripod, after moving it a few times just to make sure how fixed it was, I am completely sure my camera was safely mounted and I didn't have to worry much about it. . I will totally recommend the whole series.

          Comments about Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate:

          While this is not as quick as I thought it would be, it is faster than screwing the camera to the ball head mount. It is built very well, works very well, andwill help me out using the new tripod. Nice product......

          Comments about Oben QR-30 Quick Release Plate:

          Great product. Fits very well and secure feeling. I gave 4 star only because the ring underdeath is bit painful for fingers to screw onto the camera. This could be bit of hassel if you change plate frequently. For this reason, I have bought 2 othem for my 2 cameras. Love those studs underneath for extra security. Great product.
