Product Highlights
  • Compact Quick Release System
  • Four Bubble Levels for Accurate Leveling
  • Centering Video Pin

Oben's QRA-R2 Quick Release Assembly with RP-20 Plate is a compact system that can add quick release capability to a tripod head or monopod that doesn't come supplied with a built-in quick release system. It features four bubble levels for fast, accurate camera leveling and a rubber-surfaced camera plate. The plate is released from the base using the 2" double action safety lever. A slot on the plate allows the camera to be adjusted 0.75" to achieve the best balance possible. A centering (video) pin makes it easy to use with camcorders and many digital cameras.

      I got this quick release system after I realize the poor design by Manfrotto's 323 RC, which interferes with their own monopod.

      The Oben design fixed the extrusion of pivot screw of release lever, enable you to mate the quick release system with tripod/monopod that got larger flat area.

      I really appreciate the carefulness to put a simple design together, thus enabling a perfect fit of supporting equip that can be enhanced with a quick release system.

      When I ordered this quick release assembly I thought it was Arca Swiss compatible. It might be useful for somone with one camera, but not for me who has multiple cameras and lenses with Arca Swiss type plates and ball heads.

        Comments about Oben QRA-R2 Quick Release Assembly with RP-20 Plate:

        I hated fumbling with the screw on my tripod to get the camera mounted so I tried this and I love it plus I can move it to other tripods I already own and voila -- no problem getting the camera mounted.

        High quality

        Comments about Oben QRA-R2 Quick Release Assembly with RP-20 Plate:

        Seems to work pretty well. The levels are a nice bonus.

        The quick release lock helps with peace of mind.

        The only thing I've found that I don't like is there is a little bit of wobble in the plate when your mounting more than about 4 lbs to it.
        If you have a lightweight setup it's a great unit.

          It works just fine. Even the bubble levels are accurate. Size is just right for micro 4/3 cameras.

                  love this quick release!! it clicks in solidly, and I like that the latch stays open until you put the top piece back in. stays tightly in place without having to crank it down, and the lever/latch can actually be used with the camera mounted...this sounds stupid but somehow a lot if quick releases are built so that you can't even rotate the lever while the camera is mounted. very happy with it.

                      Nice QR unit, compatible with plates for Benro's BH1, BH0 and DJ80 heads. I use this to quickly mount/dismount my camera on/from a flash bracket. Handy. With Benro's plate on the camera, I can quickly switch between tripod, monopod and flash bracket when doing event work.

                        This is my first quick release plate purchase in filmmaking, and I must say that I am very satisfied with this product. It seems to be very durable and feels strong. It is made of mostly metal with some plastic.

                        An additional plus is that the release handle thing has a safety. I am using this on a Stedicam Merlin 2, and it works great.

                        The only downside to this product is that the screw that actually goes into the bottom is hard to turn if it has been set for more than a day or two. Not really a complaint though, because most people will not encounter this issue.

                                This is a good quick release assembly. The plate is secure in the shoe and does not wobble. The multiple levels are very handy, especially if your tripod or tripod head does have any. Those levels alone are worth the price.

                                  I use it to attach my Canon XA10 video camera to the Novoflex chest pod. Both of these products work together to ensure flexibility in moving around to video squeamish insects but stabilize the camera. The quick release really is quick release but it holds the camera firmly in place.

                                    I inherited a very old lightwieght tripod that I wanted to use for a travel-pod but it did not have the quick release plate on it. After reading all the reviews, and speaking with one of your B and H techs, I decided to try this one on the old tripod. It worked very well and now I have a travel tripod for less.

                                        No Complains. It's easy install and quite solidly built. I ordered four more after my initial two.

                                            This works well and it's solid. So far, I can't find anything to complain about, other than wishing the price was a bit lower. Purchased two to test out and now I need to order at least four more so I can use on all my platforms.
