    Desmond DAC-38 reviews

    DAC-38 Quick Release Clamp is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rotates an ARCA-Swiss clamp or plate 90 degrees The ARCA-Swiss plate on the tripod foot of a telephoto lens is perpendicular to the plate on a camera. The DAC-38 clamp conveniently rotates the telephoto plate 90 degrees. This is useful for use with nodal rails and other devices with ARCA-Swiss clamps that assume that the plate is parallel to the film plane of the camera. One can take the view that the DAC-38 rotates the clamp or rotates the plate. Either is correct.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for monopod Tilt Head I needed this to go at a right angle to the tilt head in order to use the tilt head on a camera body and not a lens plate. It worked excellent with the Kirk L-bracket for EOS camera. In other words, fit, finish, function, quality are all top notch. The alternative was R** which costs $.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value This Quick Release mount exceeds my expectations, priced far lower than any competitor and more functional too. I only wish there was a 3/8-16 version as well... I bought one to mount accessories to my camera's L bracket such as my cam ranger. I mounted it temporarily onto a magnetic mount and that opens up all kinds of possibilities. I think I may buy a handful of these just to have them on hand as it is perfect to use on a monopod, etc. I love that it has groves for mounting to a QR clamp as well. Amazing value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy another one of these if I needed one I use this quick release clamp with my Black Rapid Strap. I arca swiss plate on my camera body or on my tripod collar mount to the clamp. This makes it easier for me to carry different things i=on my Black Rapid Sport strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built I use this on my Gorillapod to allow me to keep my l bracket on the camera. Very well made.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big fat knob makes it impossible to mount The fact that the tightening knob is thicker than the rest of the clamp really limits where you can mount this thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, recommended. This a standard arca type clamp, it certainly seems to be well made. I actually bought this to replace the mini clamp on a MeFOTO DayTrip Tripod so I can use the same QR plates on multiple tripods. I had some slight machined modifications made to fit the MEFOTO perfectly and I'm very happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Useful Bought in order to mount arca-type plates on monopod, didn't realize the arca groove on the bottom. Allows me to use longer plates on top and longer clamp on bottom to form a macro-stage. Fit and finish very nice. Only used a couple times so far. Fits nicely with Breakthrough Photography plates.
