      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!

        Needed a spare plate for my old Bogen tripod head. Ordered this one, which seems even more secure than the original one.

              I own a Manfrotto tripod and a Manfrotto ball head and I wanted a couple of new quick release plates to go on my other lenses and cameras so I can just switch the equipment without having to keep switching the plate. They work as expected.

                      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 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? :)
