Axler QRA-501S Reviews

Nice piece of kit.

By Michael

I bought this for my Cinetics Lynx slider. The original plate system that comes with the slider has no locking capability. Of course it's a little terrifying to have a $6000 camera lens combo sliding around at the end of the slider on top of a tripod knowing that if that plate loosens up just a little it's game over for your gear. so I pick this up and all in all it's quite nice. Super secure locking plenty solid enough and build. One drawback is the Lynx is set up for quarter to twenty so I had to use one of those little conversion units. Luckily I already had one as this did not come with the conversion piece. If it had I have given it five stars.

Does the job.

Not the highest quality manufacturing, but definitely not bad. It works well.

Great for lightweight gear

I have switched all my gear to this mount. I now can swap any camera, slider, grip gear out without needing to turn a 1/4-20 or 5/8 screw. Quick, easy and secure.

Cheap Cast Aluminum base plate.

Aluminum base plate, the material is super thin at the 3/8 hole of the quick release plate that mounts to your tripod or monopod.  I would not trust it with any of my gear after threads broke free last weekend and almost dropping my C200 on the ground.  Buyer beware of the cheap cast aluminum. Spend the extra few dollars and get a higher quality quick release system that is made of CNC aluminum

Great timesaver

Makes life much easier when moving the camera from one means of support to another. I appreciate the handy features like built-in level and extra mounting screw storage.

Perfect for Zhiyun Crane 1

I have an old Zhiyun crane 1 that I put this on. I can slap my s5 on it in seconds now.

Works well

I own several of these, as they are an efficient and cost effective way of attaching my cameras to different accessories like teleprompters, or shoulder rigs, without needing to swap plates. My only quibble is that the fastener knob that secures the plate in place and prevents it from sliding around always seems to be in the way of the camera when ever you try to tighten it down or loosen it to remove the camera. If they had designed the knob to have a smaller profile I would have given it a 5 out of 5.

Works with my Slider

question

I have the Magnus VT-3000 tripod. Does the quick release plate for that tripod head fit in this?
Asked by: Jake B.
I'm afraid this will not work with the Magnus VT-3000, which has a proprietary QR Plate. The Axler product works with Manfrotto plates such as the 501PL and 501PLONG.
