      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.

              I already have one of these plates mounted on my camera, but we recently purchased a spotting scope which we also use on a tripod. This second plate is mounted on the scope so we can watch the birds from our sunroom window.

                This was a purchase for ease. I felt it would be convenient for me to have a 2nd Release Plate for my Bronica GS-1 film camera, incase there's a fantastic scene......I still like the quality of film over digital.

                I use these plates on my big lenses and bodies for tripod/monopod use with Manfrotto ballheads.

                What is great is that they are very secure, not too big and they are SOLID.

                What is not so great is that like most good things in photography they are not exactly cheap. But they are worth it.

                Although the release plate certainly does the job it is intended to do, the bale on the head of the screw is very tight and therefore hard to pry to the extended position for installing or un-installing a camara. I can envision broken fingernails trying to move it. I would think it could be a little more user friendly.

                    Fits my old Manfrotto 3262QR tripod mount. Took a little research and faith on my part to see if this mounting plate would fit my mount, but it works perfectly.

                                  Having more than one of these is an absolute must when dealing with multiple camera bodies, lenses or lighting fixtures. It is an exact duplicate of the one that came with the ball head. I liked the first one; what's not to like about this one!

                                    I needed an extra plate because my new Canon 100-400 has a tripod collar and I wanted to keep a plate on it so it's always handy. It's enough trouble to change a lens/camera on a tripod without having to shuffle around plates, too. This is the genuine article, too. That's good because there are 'compatible' ones. I always like to have the real thing. Manfrotto's too good and too sturdy to make the plate the weakest link. Very happy with it. And that I could easily order this small part!

                                      Now I don't have to worry about losing my plate in some out of the way place where I'd never find a camera store to purchase another.

                                        I have more than one camera, so I purchased extra quick releases.
                                        these releases are of great quality.

                                        This quick release plate for perfectly into my old Nikon/Manfrotto tripod. It's a heavy duty plate and it made much more sense to buy a new plate instead of a new tripod.

                                            With multiple cameras, tripods and users, it's inevitable that someone will walk away with this in their pocket. Gotta have a spare.
