I wish they were available even longer!

Added it to my large spotting scope using the 3/8 screw. Very pleased with the fit. This is a replacement for an old flimsy plate that managed to strip the 1/4 socket in my scope tripod foot.

Flexibility

I bought it as an additional plate for my photo gear and for a quick setup when doing short lock-off video work with a very light weight cine rig. Here I use my GITZO photography tripod and RRS ball head instead of the standard bulky dedicated videography tripod.

Good

I only wish they made longer ones available.

No d-rings on the screws

By Giovanni

The picture in the product's page clearly shows d-ring screws, but the actual item has regular screws with hex sockets (and fairly flimsy, easily marred ones at that). I'd much rather have the tool-free option. I could replace them but it's difficult to find d-ring 3/8 screws with the correct stem length. That aside, the plate is of good quality, although the rubber pads are a little on the small side.

question

Is this 100% Arca compatible?
Asked by: Mark
This will work with thumb screw-type Arca Swiss style clamps. There is less of the dovetails engaged in the clamp compared to some other plates. The dovetail has a rounded bottom edge which is likely needed to work smoothly with the drop in style kwik clamp.
