      Comments about Desmond DBLP-1 QR L Plate:

      I use this plate with a Nikon D5300 and Manfrotto 190 tripod with Manfrotto 498RC2 Midi Ball Head. Other reviewers suggested that the plate wobbles when attached to the quick release. I have found it to have a fine tight fit to my ball head. Several small nits to pick. Having to use an allen wrench (provided) to attach/remove the plate from the camera is a bit difficult in the field. On the D5300, the plate covers the battery cover unless you attach the plate hanging out about 1/2" on the left. Also, the plate interferes slightly with the articulated LCD. The relatively low price is another plus. Overall, it works well, and I would recommend it to others.

        Comments about Desmond DBLP-1 QR L Plate:

        This is a great L plate for anyone using a Manfrotto quick release tripod head. Most L plates are Arca Swiss compatible, so it was nice to find this one that's Manfrotto compatible. It's much simpler than the Manfrotto L Plate and is very unobtrusive when mounted. I highly recommend this item.
