Desmond DBA-2 overview

  • 1Description

The DBA-2 60mm Arca & Manfrotto Compatible Clamp from Desmond is an aluminum clamp that is compatible with both Arca-type plates, and Manfrotto 200PL plates. A removable 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.

    Desmond DBA-2 reviews

    DBA-2 60mm Arca & Manfrotto Compatible Clamp is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good QR clamp This clamp is sturdy and very nicely made. The ability to hold either Manfrotto or Arca plates is really innovative and handy. I had trouble at first figuring out how it could hold the Manfrotto plate, since the Arca groove isn't wide enough to accommodate the Manfrotto plate, even when completely opened. I finally noticed the separate groove on one side of the clamp that accommodates one side of the Manfrotto plate and makes it possible. Excellent! So much better than the Manfrotto 323 clamp with the bump on the bottom that prevents it from being used in many applications.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of Both Worlds Finally, a product that allows a photographer to use both Manfrotto and Arca-Swiss quick release plates on the same tripod head! I've been using Manfrotto tripods and heads for most of my years taking photos, and have been very satisfied with the products. I recently purchased a Nikon 200-500 f5.6 and wanted to use a longer quick release on the tripod foot, and an Arca-Swiss QR plate was the only option. I thought I might have to purchase new tripod heads, or at least new QR clamps, and switch over completely to Arca-Swiss. Then I discovered these plates which can convert a tripod head so it can handle both systems. Simple, but brilliant! I installed them on 3 Manfrotto Heads (a 494RC and two 496RC ballheads)and they work perfectly! I purchased them with the Desmond Boss accessory, which made them attach very securely. So far I'm more than pleased - they're solid, well built, easy to install and use, and with a high quality finish and appearance. Highly recommended.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not suited for Manfrotto 484RC2 I wanted to replace QR clamp C0139133 on my Manfrotto 484RC2 head, but DAB-2 is not suited for this. The actual marking on the clamp is DAB-2, not DBA-2. The flange on the head's base plate is 6.5 mm wide and the groove for it in DAB-2 is about 5.5 mm. It can't be installed without some filing. Anyway it is well made plate, easily accepting Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto 200PL plates as described.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does great with Manfrotto and Arca-Swiss compatible plate I wanted to enter into Arca-Swiss plates but I had invested in many Manfrotto plates I didn't want to loss because they are very convenient. Now I can switch between them with no hassle at all. Just remember you need the Desmond BOGEN BOSS ADAPTER for this clamp to suit the compatible Manfrotto heads. I use on a Manfrotto XPRO Ball Head and it works great. Excellent service from B&H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended This item works great. It's got a solid grip on the Manfrotto 200pl quick release plate and Arca plates. Quality built product from Desmond. Works like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try, you won't regret I had a Manfrotto head and have invested in several Manfrotto plates but also wanted to attach my camera with L-Brackets Arca compatible so, this is a great solution since I can used both systems with the ball head I love. No extra ball head or clamp needed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will get you from Manfrotto to Arca plates I had to call for help installing it, but it is working like a charm now. Key is to put a Manfrotto plate in the bottom of the clamp and attach it to the Manfrotto head. Arca quick change plates can then be used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend I converted my Gimbal with this Clamp. Well made clamp and easy to install now my camera, lens foot, monopod, tripod and gimbal are all arca-swiss compatible, I call this photography heaven.
