I was packing for a shoot and noticed my release plate was missing from my tripod, B&H had a replacement in stock and shipped out the next day.

The dedicated levers are great for adjusting the movement while shooting, facilitating accurate framing. The material quality remain the characteristic of the brand.

lightweight but solid

uses a different plate than my other Manfrotto pods, so I have to be careful to store the plate on the pod, vs on my lenses as usual ... but holds my big pro bodies and big sport lenses just fine

Happy for B&H large inventory

Attaching a a Sony a6600 with a Tamron 18-300mm lens to a Manfrotto worked great allowing a great shot with the lens set at 300 (450mm) plus a 2x setting on the camera.

Will this head fit a peak design plate?
Asked by: Chase
You will need to use the Peak Design dual plate that fits both arca-swiss and 200PL/RC2 style clamps. Alternatively, the 200PL plates from Manfrotto will fit both 200PL and arca-swiss by default, but will not work on the Peak Design capture clip.

Will this (Manfrotto 200PL) fit a Bogen 3262?
Asked by: Anonymous
With a quick release adapter you can use any plate you want on the Bogen 3262. To use the 200PL, I suggest you use this adapter made by Manfrotto: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/554141-REG target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/554141-REG</a>

question

I would like to release my video camera from my Manfrotto tripod and quickly attach it to a Steady Tracker. Is there a mating plate available for the 200PL Quick Release Plate? In other words, is there a female plate that I could attach to other devices so that I could quickly move my camera from one setup to another? Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes there is an adapter to allow you to use this plate on various other devices. We have two options. See the links below for details:http://bhpho.to/19TYjMOhttp://bhpho.to/1dsSnJU
