      This item, quick release, is simple and easy to use. I have one for each of my point and shoot cameras. Ready to attach to the tripod for the shot before it gets away. I have 3, one for my 2 cameras and a backup, just in case I lose one.

        Comments about Sunpak Quick Release Platform for Compact Pistol Grip Ball Head:

        This is exactly what I was looking for. I have the Supak 6000 tripod and I usually take 2 cameras with 2 different lenses. It's nice not to carry 2 tripods so I just leave 1 quick release platform attached to each camera and it makes it simple and quick! Works great. Best price I found.

            There isn't much to say about this since it is specifically made by the tripod manufacture and fits perfectly into the head. Purchased this as an extra as a backup in the event the original becomes misplaced but also to have two bodies ready without having to keep changing out.

                  Product feels solid.
                  However, this will not work with Sunpak Ultra 6000PG.

                    I purchased Sunpak pro 423px from bestBuy. The openbox item didnt come with the Quick release plate. So got online and ordered on B&H. Now this one will aways stay attached to my D5200. This product is exactly what i wanted. Shipping was free but yet fast. B&H is one of the most reliable seller.If you have more than one camera that you may be using on one tripod, you may need one one as an extra Quick Release Platform if you want to keep them attached to the cameras to be quicker switching between them over the same tripod.

                        B&H never fails to deliver! I retrived a couple of older camera bodies I had passed down to my Daughter to use as back ups as I was to shoot a wedding in St. Maarten when I realized that I was short 2 quick release plates for my travel tripod! What would have been a real hassle was quickly taken care of on short notice by B&H! Products were dlivered on time and in good workin order! (As always)

                          This is the Sunpak factory quick shoe for their Platinum Plus 6000PG tripod and other models. It's made entirely of metal, has a non-slip pad, and the camera mounting screw underneath has an easy to use, fold down, no tool required, thingamajig.
                          I've been using the medium-duty 6000PG ball head tripod with DSLRs and medium-range zoom lenses, nothing very heavy, and it holds position. Very convenient and works well enough that I bought two of them, and now I have an extra quick release platform for them.

                                My tripod came with only one platform; I ordered this for a backup. The product is an exact match for my existing tripod.

                                I am an new photographer and find this quick release platform meets my needs. It is very easy to install in the camera and on the tripod. It does have good quick release action.

                                  I can never seem to have enough of these.For all my cameras, laser distance meter, lazer level. and so far two tripods with the Sunpak Pistol Grip Ball Head.These have a locking pin for line up and a 1/4" screw with folding grip. I love this product.and B&H is the best for priceing and quick shipping.

                                    This is one of the most outstanding pistol grip heads out there. It points fast and has an adjustable friction lock. Very sturdy, very smooth, and very comfortable on a long day of shooting.

                                        We lost the original quick release that came with the tripod somehow.
                                        The product is fine but I give 5 stars to B&H customer service. I called and spoke to Abe who was very helpful and polite. Next day, I received an email from C/S saying they were sorry that I had not succeeded in a chat session I had initiated and wondered if I had questions he could help with.

                                        All this service - Abe's time, his cost, and the email apologizing for the failed chat session - for a $9.95 piece of plastic.

                                        I will definitely shop here again.

                                        This platform does exactly what it's suppose to do! It screws into my camera easily and allows for simple connection to the tripod. This is extremely important to me since I am filming my hunting adventures for TV and need to have my gear perform every time without any complications.

                                          I bought the tripod and the platform wasn't threaded for some reason. I ordered the replacement place, and boom. it's threaded. which means it works. Not sure how to review it. It keeps my camera firmly on top of my tripod, so a+
