The DS-1 Bi-Directional Arca-Type QR Plate from Desmond is a square Arca-type compatible quick-release plate. It is designed for compact cameras, and has dovetails on all four sides, allowing you to mount the camera in any direction in your clamp. Rubber grips on the top of the plate help reduce camera-twist. The included 1/4"-20 mounting screw can be tightened with a hex key, or by hand with the D-ring.

    Desmond DS-1 reviews

    DS-1 Bi-Directional Arca-Type QR Plate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this versatile mounting plate I love this plate. Its well made, solid and has good mounting flexibility. I can mount it off center on my camera so I have access to the battery door for battery and SD card changes without having to remove the plate. I did make a slight modification to the plate so I can use Peak Design connectors to carry the camera sling style like I do my other camera. Five minutes time with a rat tail file and some fine sandpaper to smooth the edges gave me a spot for the connector to fit without the plate sitting crooked on the base of the camera. There is plenty of plate thickness to work worth so no worry about being too thin in that spot. See attached photos

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with RRS Lever Clamp I just purchased this for the lowest cost of Arca-type plate for P&S camera. It works very well with the RRS lever clamp. The pressing feel is the same as RRS plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for any Arca QR bracket user I use Really Right Stuff quick release clamps on all my tripods and flash brackets. this QR plate allows you mount your camera, lenses, or flash units on an off your tripods, or light stands quickly when using QR clamps

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and compact Purchased this for my bridge camera. I love the bidirectional nature of the plate. Because of where the battery compartment and tripod screw is on the camera the plate has to be quite off center so it doesn't sit as flush as I'd like. But that isn't the plate's fault. Don't think it would be a good choice for a large DSLR though as it feels not as heavy duty as the plates I use on my DSLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what is does cheaply I use the Arca-Swiss type of plate on both of my larger cameras. I needed a small and inexpensive plate for my Lumix GM5 so I could place the camera on any of my tripods. The plate is as small as it can be and was a fair price considering the little bit of use I expect it to get. I mounted it left of center so that I can access the battery and memory card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Versitile Camera Plate The beauty of this camera plate is the ability to slide your camera into the quick release clamp by pushing it forward. Sometime I use a cage for my DSLR. The cage prevents sliding the camera sideways into the quick release clamp. The bi-directional camera is perfect for this rig. This plate is well crafted and easy to install.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from DS-1 Bi-Directional Arca-Type QR Plate b Used it on my Manfroto rail to make it easy to add between my camera and Tripod. It did just what I wanted to do at a reasonable price and I'm real happy with it. Where the screw fits in slot is a little small had to file out a little bit to accept the screw into slider portion
