Kessler Crane MG1001 Reviews
I spent a lot of time shopping for a quick-release system upon which I could mount (A.) a tripod head, or (B.) a jib, or (C.) a slider. Mounting those items involves different considerations compared to just mounting a camera. I tried the typical quick-releases intended for cameras, with unsatisfactory results (in particular, rubber or cork pads are bad when you need to prevent flexing of the payload atop the quick-release). However, I'm happy to report that the Kessler Kwik Receiver has exceeded my expectations. I use it in conjunction with several Kwik Slider Plates which are mounted on the base of my tripod head, jib, and slider for instant swapping (without compromising on a rock-solid mount). The system is pricey, but absolutely worth the performance......especially when you are flying a camera on a jib arm above your talent's head.
Best Quick Release System I've Found
I now own 4 of these quick release receivers and am very happy with the strength and security these receivers afford me when mounting heavy camera systems...up to 40 lbs. No issues and am very pleased with the Kessler system.
The centerpiece of my builds now
This Kwik receiver is sturdy and reliable. Even though it's pricey, it is incredibly well-made. I keep saving up to add additional receivers to my kit so that I can quickly (and safely) move cameras between different setups on sliders, tripods, and jibs. I've attached a photo of it in one of my setups, bridging a Hercules head and a jib arm with an Arca mount.
This receiver clacks so satisfyingly into place, and locks easily. I had to do a little metal work to get it to fit on my ball head, but nothing an end-mill in a drill press couldn't handle. Very satisfied, trying to think of reasons to buy more of them!
Kessler nailed it.... expensive. But nailed it.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Kesslers Kwik stands. Haven't seen them yet? Check them out, essentially Arca Swiss plates that have stands built in so ya know, your rig can sit without falling over. Well, one thing that is a downside on those is that some quick release plates can be hard to work with the feet on the Kwik stands. This fixes that, and makes it even better by incorporating a drop-in, I.E. you drop in your camera, it locks, and you are ready to rock n' roll. Love this thing. Buying another. I also own the Kessler Kwik Stand standard and mini size.
very good but not suitable for all arca swiss
works really good but my others arca swiss are not compatible and you cant adjust them
Robust and easy to use
Really simple and easy to use. I bought this because I attached my 4x5 camera to my tripod once and didn't fasten the QR plate correctly, so I dropped it and broke my ground glass! But the click when you attach this receiver makes it very clear that your camera isn't going anywhere. Nice.
Not cheap but it is a quality machined piece of gear. Got it to use with my carbon fiber Teris JQ40 jib to allow quick release attaching to my tripod head.
