Switch from a tripod to hand-held in a snap with the DPG‑50U Universal Quick Release Plate from Sunwayfoto. Compatible with all Arca-type clamps, this plate is CNC-machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum and has a satiny, anodized surface for improved resistance to abrasion and corrosion. It features a a convex edge to keep the plate from shifting on the bottom of your camera and a square base that allows for mounting the camera along both axes. You can also attach a camera strap to a side slot for grab-and-go convenience. The plate mounts to your camera by means of a 1/4"-20 thread at the top and also has a 1/4" threaded hole for direct mounting to a monopod, while two supplied stainless steel safety-stop screws can be mounted underneath to protect your gear from accidental drops. This plate is designed to fit Nikon D200, D300, D700 DSLRs, as well as Canon's 50D, 5D, 5DII, 7D, 1D and 1DS models and DSLRs from other brands.
