    Desmond DAC-01 reviews

    DAC-01 50mm Quick Release Clamp is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A well made clamp at a reasonable price I have recently switched to the Arca Swiss type quick release system from some other proprietary system. I have several tripods that I think I would like to keep. All have ball heads. The DAC-01 worked well with some, but not with all.It is important to note that it fits all Arca Swiss style plates I own. The issue I encountered is that it did not fit all ball heads (out of the box). One of the features is the key slot that connects with the ball head to prevent the clamp from turning.I do have a fairly complete workshop and was able to modify the other brand ball head to fit the DAC-01 plate. That required at most 15 minutes of filing on the ball head stalk. If that is not for you, consider a different path.Problems not withstanding, I was able to salvage a very good tripod from an earlier era for my current work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not open wide enough for Arca-swiss plates I may have a faulty model given the other reviews. I have almost a dozen Arca-swiss plates (with stoppers on the bottom) that I cannot insert into this clamp as it does not open wide enough to put them in on edge (you cannot slide them in as the stoppers prevent this). It is only a matter of a millimetre or so (1/25 of an inch). Would cost more to send back than clamp is worth. Perhaps a file will provide an ugly solution. Also the 3/8 to 1/4 insert does not go in deep enough, more filing !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition for outdoors kit I have a Peak Design Capture that attaches to my camera. I also have a Sony VCT-R100 tripod and the DAC-01 50mm Quick release clamp allows me, with the included adjustment, to mount my Sony NEX 5N quickly to the tripod. This combination works great if you're out hiking -

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good clamp Great clamp! Very spartan; no index markings. Not as well finished as the high-priced units, but perfectly satisfactory. Just a simple basic clamp at a reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product The build quality is very good. I got this to work as a Arca-Swiss connector and saved a lot of money on the tripod.. as Arca-Swiss type tripods/heads are expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to Work as Well as RRS at Half the Price I own both RRS clamps and Arca Swiss clamps and frankly this Desmond clamp seems to work just as well and seems to be made with comparable materials and workmanship.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Sturdy Arca Style Clamp Inexpensive, well made, Arca Style clamp. Put it on my Benro bullhead to make my entire system compatible.
