    DAC-X1 50mm Skeleton Clamp with Level is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great, but fitment not best For the price, this clamp is a great product. The weight and construction is top-notch, and it secures my X-E2 grip securely without issue. Except for the fact that they do not include a 3/8 screw to secure to my SBH-250 ballhead. When using the Vanguard screw, it does not sit flush with the clamp, causing my camera to not sit flush into the clamp. Thankfully, the clamp can still grab my grip's dovetail, but it's not a 100% good seal. When using a lighter camera, this isn't really an issue. I've tried to dislodge it without any luck. That said, if you're using a full DSLR outfit, I would look elsewhere because I wouldn't trust any lack of fit with a heavy setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice adapter This adapter is an excellent way to add an Arca-Swiss type quick-release setup to a support that doesn't have one. The skeleton structure really does cut down the weight some, versus the something like the Desmond DBA-2 (which I also have). I am using the DAC-X1 to add a QR to a universal L-bracket I have (used as a quick setup for vertical shots). One other reviewer commented about having trouble with the 1/4 bushing that comes with it. I also had the same toruble - it is the longest bushing I have ever seen (for example, much longer than the one that came with the DBA-2). It seems that Desmond is including a bushing that will not work properly with the DAC-X1 adapter. I would advise anyone who buys this to also buy a regular bushing adapter - a regular one, like you often get with tripod heads, will work perfectly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate I purchased this clamp for use on a cheap travel tripod. �It's light weight and works. �the knob feels like cheap plastic and it squeaks whenever I turn it to tighten. �Just don't expect it to be the quality of other well known manufactures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DAC-X1 This was the lightest and most affordable adapter plate for the tripod head with proprietary non-Arca plate. I keep it permanently attached to that plate. Simple, feels solid, strong holding my heavy tele-zoom. High utility value.
