              I love the top mount design. Camera plate catches and locks in a snap.(but always check its lever is push in) I no longer have to fiddle with sliding camera plate design. I'm one person shooter and just love the speed moving from sticks to high hat, jib, slider, and hand held. Will be purchuasing a couple more. "Just Perfect"

                  Thought it comes with 2 accessory mount but it didnt. Had to purchase the 1/4 20 thread accessory mount from RAM and it was 50% cheaper than cinvate offers. overall I love this baseplate as it gives you a lot of space to mount for run n gun.

                  In the begining I thought the quick mount wasnt secure, but it proved me wrong.

                    The Simplis came in a Cinevate box with 2 allen wrenches and absolutely no screws.... thus making it completely useless out of the box (unless you happen to already own the right 1/4 screws). You have to mount the Simplis to SOMETHING.... but you are unable to as shipped. I have many other Cinevate products none of which had the right screws. Contacted Cinevate who shifted blame to B&H and said it should have shipped with 1/4 screws. They said they would send directly to me which they haven't.

                        very handy to have so that you can install more gear to your setup. I used it to add a monitor to my DSLR setup. The only drwaback is that it adds a bit more weight to your rig.

                                Comments about Cinevate Inc Simplis Quick Release System:

                                I use this with the Cinevate rail system. I chose this over the Zacuto DSRL base plate system. The Cinevate system is solid as a rock, which is what I wanted. I use a Manfrotto plate which is perfect, means I don't have to swap out plates when I move to a different system.

                                The Zacuto system was unsteady (not solid), too tall. I could not use a Manfrotto plate, it only works with the Zacuto system parts.

                                This release plate pops straight up - easy to make lens changes, too. I use this with a Genus Matte Box and Redrock Follow Focus Blue.

                                Be aware if you use this configuration you'll need a riser for the Matte Box and works beautifully.

                                  The primary use of this for me was to add a couple articulate arms and use for a small video rig. It works great for this. The constructions is top notch. I also used it to mount to a Redrock Micro rig to make it quick to swap out my DSLR from the rig. Although it is pricey I do think it is worth it.

                                  The fact that this works similar to a still mount by allowing the camera to pop off the top it makes it easy to get the camera in and out.

                                      I use this with my glidecam plate and rail system. I really liked that it took the plate that I have used for 5 different rigs that I've consolidated with different quick-releases/tripods.
