      I bought this QR plate for my Canon SL1. It is too long and blocks the battery/card compartment door. I was able to hog-out the slot in the plate with a Dremel tool and re-tap the threads in the slot so I can open the door. What I like about the QR plate is the 2 1/4-20 mounting holes. This allows me to mount the camera to other stands/devices without removing the plate. The universal dovetail fits my Dolica ball-head just fine. The Joby plate is well made and the price is right.

        Comments about Joby Ultra Plate Quick Release Plate for DSLR & Compact System Camera:

        Having the joby sling, I had to get this. Yes its a bit wide but still room on my Canon 70D base. My chief issue though is the dovetail is not totally compatible with my tripod (mefoto (Benro) road trip) which supposedly has an arca-swiss style ball head. The plate slips somewhat easily while on the ballhead. So I have to attach the tripod plate under this one.

          Comments about Joby Ultra Plate Quick Release Plate for DSLR & Compact System Camera:

          My strap connects to my camera's tripod connector and in most cases this works great. However, on the days when I am switching from the strap to the tripod, it can be time consuming and a pain. I looked at making a piece that would let me connect the strap connector and a tripod quick release plate at the same time. Now I don't need to make one. Joby did it for me. It is great and in use saves me lots of time. This is the part I needed for years. THANKS....

          XL sling

          By Merc Inc

          from Wa

          Comments about Joby Ultra Plate Quick Release Plate for DSLR & Compact System Camera:

          I'm a decently size man 6'1 athletic build. The XL sling fits well with enough leeway to comfortably maneuver your camera. I also have the ultra plate attachment, both attach solidly to Canon. I have seen no backing out or unscrewing. The tether cord provides an additional peach of mind. Satisfied with purchase.

          Anyone looking to purchase the ultra plate as well, take note that the ultra fit hand grip comes with an ultra plate included.

          Good solution for strap/tripod users

          By Timothy

          from Pittsburgh

          Comments about Joby Ultra Plate Quick Release Plate for DSLR & Compact System Camera:

          I paired this with the Joby Ultrafit strap (which I also highly recommend) on my Nikon D5300 dSLR. Works very well for allowing me to keep it on my strap for shots while moving around, but rapidly transitioning to my tripod when stability is called for, without having to do the strap/tripod plate shuffle.

          The only issue I had was the fit between the Joby sling attachment and my tripod's quick-connect plate. When mounting the Ultra plate on my camera, I had interference issues between the sling & tripod plate when mounted as shown in the photos of the Ultra plate. I ended up having to mount the Ultra plate at a 90 degree angle (front-to-back instead of side-to-side), but it works fine that way as well.

          It was also a nice touch that they include the allen wrench for mounting the Ultra plate in the package...allows you to snug it up nice & tight.

              This little plate enables me to use my shoulder style camera strap and still have my tripod mounting plate on the camera for quick use if I need it. I had seen other plates that did the same thing but they were much bigger, and cost three times as much. Thank you Joby!

                I wasn't sure if I really wanted to purchase this accessory to go with my Joby strap, but I am very glad I did. The fit on my Canon 70D is excellent and I really appreciate that I can pop it on my tripod without having to remove the strap. It also provides much appreciated adjustment for the attachment point of my strap which allows more comfortable carry.

                  Fantastic plate! Using with a BlackRapid sling. Would be nice if the metal surface was a little more grippy for the FastenR, but some Loctite on the thread solves that issue. Provided Allen key allows for a tight connection to camera with no slippage or movement. Can use an OP/TECH Uni-Loop for extra security, though I didn't feel it was necessary.

                    Comments about Joby Ultra Plate Quick Release Plate for DSLR & Compact System Camera:

                    This plate is a great solution to the problem of being able to keep a strap and arca plate on your camera at the same time, facilitating transitioning between hand held and tripod mounted shooting. Much more reasonably priced than other similar solutions I've seen. Keeps your camera secure, providing peace of mind.

                      I have a tripod quick release plate that I keep on the camera - using this one, I don't have to detach the strap to mount the camera. Works well, and mounts well on both the camera and the tripod.

                            The plate works brilliantly, with all Arca-Swiss type ball heads.

                              Works great with my Joby strap, and lets my use my tripod at the same time! I wonder why I waited so long..

                                    To put it plainly, it works. It's basically just a simple piece of metal that attaches to the camera when using the Joby Ultra Strap. If you want to quickly place your camera on a tripod without taking off the strap, you'll need this plate. It's a little pricy for such a simple piece, but if you use a tripod often you'll need it.

                                        while a good concept this does not work for Panasonic DMC-FZ200. Cannot access the battery with the plate attached.

                                            This plate is a must have for the photographer who needs to use a tripod when shooting. I keep my tripod plate on the all the time and it's a quick set up. No twisting. This plate stays in place and is easy to use. For [$] this is important to have.

                                              I have both Joby and blackrapid straps and this one complements either one. It also works with my meFOTO tripod if you have that brand. Makes carrying and setting up on the tripod super quick!
