Sunwayfoto MAC-14 Overview

The MAC-14 Quick Release Clamp from Sunwayfoto is a CNC machined aluminum clamp that is compatible with both Arca-type plates, and Manfrotto 200PL plates. A built-in bull's-eye bubble level helps to level your camera to the horizon, and a locking knob opens and closes the clamp to adjust or remove the plate.

A numbered scale on the clamp allows for precision positioning of Arca-type plates. Two safety stop grooves allow the use of plates with safety screws, to prevent the plates from accidentally sliding out of the clamp. It has a 3/8"-16 threaded hole to mount the clamp onto a tripod or ball head, and also comes with a 1/4"-20 bushing adapter.

Sunwayfoto MAC-14 Reviews

Quality and Versatility

I have a number of tripods with Manfrotto RC2 style heads and a mix of cameras, lenses, and accessories with a mix of RC2 clips and Arca L-plates. This clamp makes them all work together. While the Arca compatibility is obvious, it might not be totally clear how the RC2 plates fit into the MAC-14. I have attached a photo showing how the RC2 fits into a separate groove from the Arca plates. Note that some very old RC2 plates will not fit (see photos).

Excellent stuff!

Relatively inexpensive clamp. I got 3 of them to screw to Manfrotto 200PL quick release plate in order to make Manfrotto/Arca-Swiss adapters. If you gonna repeat that, put a drop of Loctite 609 glue on the threads.

Like other Sunwayfoto tools I've purchased it offers good performance at a fair price.

Works well on monopod but not on Manfrotto MVH400AH fluid head

By Mary Suzanne
Rated 4 out of 5

Pros: quality build & easy to turn knobs Cons: easy to turn larger knob is too big if mounted upon larger mounting bases such as my Manfrotto fluid head runs into mounting upon larger mounting bases. I have a new Lumix S5 with a half dozen lenses. This plate works well to attach my S5 to my monopod & since this receiver large enough, I can off-set the weight of the camera with the lense just enough so my camera with lense can be positioned just right for balancing atop the monopod with monopod legs. However atop Manfrotto fluid head MVH500AH, the knob won't turn since knob is too wide. So this receiver MUST be larger than the base upon which it sits or the exact same size to allow room for the giant easy to turn knob. However, I will keep it but just disappointed doesn't have full flexibility.

Needed a clamp for a table top pod. It works fine, holds camera without any movement. I would buy again for the price.

I have bought few clamps to make the adapters for Manfrotto QR plates.

I am considering a Manfrotto Be-Free Travel Tripod with a the 494 Ball Head. What's the best way to integrate the Sunwayfoto Clamp?
Asked by: Travis
You will have to unscrew the existing Manfrotto clamp and screw the Sirui clamp, either by the existing Manfrotto screw or a bolt that screws down into the Sirui clamp by using a tapered head screw that fits into the countersunk hole.
