The Surefoot Adapter for Manfrotto Plate from Jobu Design is a long plate that attaches to the bottom of a Manfrotto RC2 quick-release plate. This setup enables you to mount your camera & telephoto lens in a gimbal head from Jobu Design – or in an Arca-style compatible head from another manufacturer. The Surefoot Adapter is designed for long lenses that do not have collars (such as a Tamron 28-200).

With etched millimeter markings along its base, the adapter can be used to properly balance most camera/lens combinations in a gimbal head. Best of all, you won't have to remove your Manfrotto plate, so you can easily switch to shooting handheld or on a tripod.

Note: Does not include a Manfrotto RC2 plate. You will not be able to switch to portrait mode with this type of setup.

      Comments about Jobu Design Surefoot Adapter for Manfrotto Plate:

      This in every way fits the bill to attach my camera to the Pro Gimbal head. It provides rock solid attachment with dirt simple implementation. I leave the adapter on the Jobu Head and the camera goes on and off with ease. When ordering this adapter make sure you have or also order the Manfroto piece that goes on the bottom of your camera or lense. If you attach the Manfroto to the camera, you will be shooting landscape, not portrait orientation, but if you attach via a ring on the lense, you should be able to rotate within the ring. The scale is great for micro focus on a stationary object or scene; shoot, loosen the gimbal attach screw slightly, move the adapter/camera, rue tighten and shoot the next shot. In this way you are bound to get a super sharp shot. Just make sure you are shooting manual focus after the first shot so that the camera does not refocus between shots.
