    Desmond DBA-1 reviews

    DBA-1 60mm Quick Release Clamp is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desmond DBA-1 Clamp Does the job Over the past several years, I have acquired several tripod hears with two different mounting methods, and the purpose of this purchase was to reduce the methods to one - and it does the job very well. The fit and finish of the clamp are excellent, and it mounts to the other quick release plate perfectly, effectively allowing me us use an Arca Swiss plate on all my cameras. I would defeinately recommend this device to those looking to standardize on a single mounting plate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from DBA-1 60mm Quick Release Clamp I use my clamp on an old 3 way pan/tilt head. The build/quality of the clamp is fine. I also use a Desmond QR plate. It does take more than one full turn to open the clamp completely, but not a problem for me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bargain too far The quick release clamp by Desmond holds firmly and the bubble level is reasonably useful. However, the clamp does not open when released so you must shake the camera/accessory or manually open the clamp with your fingers to release the camera/accessory. The springs that should do this are either too weak or non-existant. If you can find the extra dozen dollars necessary to get a slightly better clamp, I think that would be money well spent. Bottom line, holds firmly but nothing quick about the release.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I now have 2 Solid QR Clamp with groves that prevent accidental slippage when using a Desmond plate with set screws. It's heavier than Desmond DDSC-60 Circular Disc Clamp, but offers more surface area, so probably could support more weight. I use one of these as a replacement to the QR clamp on an arca-swiss ball head, and on my window mount so that I can switch between quickly with my 300mm telephoto lens or 85mm spotting scope. It's smooth, clamps tight, and feels solid. No complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and secure I add this to all my support gear. I now have a standard plate that fit on all my tripods, monopods and holster.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1/4 -20 adapter - not included - can't use built and quality is good and would last but how can I use this if I can't attached this to a tripod/monopod without that 1/4 -20 adapter, incomplete shipment!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, had to be returned The internal adapter would not screw into the clamp. Poor quality manufacturing. RMA to B&H and had a refund within 2 days.
