      Does the Job

      I have a Manfrotto video head, so I just thought I would get an extra plate, for fast swapping cameras or in case I lose one. I've had the head for 6 months now, and the plate feels very, very solid. The rubber pad grips the camera base very firmly without having to apply too much pressure to the screw. The metal D ring makes it easy to tighten without stopping to dig out a coin or screwdriver. My only complaint is that you have to be careful to check the direction of the camera, it only locks in one way - luckily the underside has an arrow!

      Great Plate

      The plates are used in a education atmosphere. They are used everyday. It keep the camera placed on the tripod firm. The plate is easy to use and inserts into the camera perfect.

              Allows you to attach and detach camera to tripod quickly and securely. When plate is on camera but not on tripod, need to be careful when setting camera down as plate makes camera wobbly on a flat surface or can scratch table tops.

                  I've used it on several camera accessories, not only for my camera, but my 70-200 mm F2.8 lens and my macro rail system, to mount on my Manfrotto tripod. Makes it easy to quickly change equipment my tripod.

                    I am an older photographer and my hand is less steady than it used to be. A tripod has become a necessity if I want clear, crisp photos. Adding a quick disconnect plate to my camera allows me quick and easy set-up for my shots. As I also use the same tripod for a spotting scope, which also has a dedicated mounting plate, I just leave the plates on the respective equipment and it only takes seconds to switch.

                        Anytime I need something that might be hard to find or just to avoid hastles I order from B&H. I needed an adapter for my new pano head so I could mount to my tripod and of course they new exactly what I needed and everything works perfectly now. Thanks.

                          I'm a stickler for sharpness; so I carry either a monopod or a tripod with me wherever I go, but they can be cumbersome when the camera is attached, and you can fall on your face. So the preference is to keep them detached. The screw thread is troublesome and in some cases can cause real problems when it pulls out the adapter. So I bought these quick release device so that all my lenses, my Bogan monopod, and my Manfrotto tripod now have one. Connection is a simple snap and they are quite secure.

                            Have a new large lens ordered and getting ready I realized that since I'm not dumping any lenses I needed some more plates. Thought of changing out my mounting sys, but I've been too happy with the RC2 so I thought better of it. Love this for it's solid, simple, quick and no nonsense mount. As for B&H, where else would I go? :)

                                Quick fix for a lost QR plate; tripod is back in action.

                                Excellent product. Ring to tighten it is very helpful; no need to keep a coin in your pocket.

                                      I needed to replace this plate, as I had misplaced the one that came with the tripod head. The product was as expected and B&H was, as usual, efficient.

                                        I REALLY enjoy buying from bandh. It's always a great buying experience. I've been in the video biz for over 20 years and they are always the first company I search for gear, etc. This release plate is well made and easy to take on and off my camera.

                                        I really should buy these by the dozen.

                                          Then I'd have some left after I leave them on rental gear. :)

                                            Product is exactly what is needed to replace a lost part on the tripod head.
