Really Right Stuff BQDS overview

  • 1Description

The BQDS Bi-Directional Plate from Really Right Stuff mounts to the bottom of a camera via the 1/4"-20 male screw and gives the camera a quick release function. The plate is compatible with any Really Right Stuff and most Arca-type clamps or ball heads.

The bi-directional dovetail design allows the plate to mount in any direction on the ball head or clamp. On the bottom of the screw, there is a Quick-Detach (QD) socket. Therefore, the plate allows a QD Strap Swivel to attach to the 1/4"-20 screw. Since all sides of the plate are equal, it permits the anti-twist flange to mount towards the front or the back of the camera, and the anti-twist flange helps prevent any movement between the camera and the plate.

The CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum plate has an anodized Type II black finish, and an index mark is found on the side of the plate, which helps to center the camera on a ball head or clamp.

    Really Right Stuff BQDS reviews

    BQDS Bi-Directional Plate for Quick-Detach Strap Swivel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Universally Compatible -- Incomplete Description I am a HUGE fan of the Really Right Stuff brand. They make things that last a lifetime and are second to none! With that being said, this is not universally compatible as the description leads you to believe. There is a lip on the plate. Thus, I don't think it would work well with most DSLRs as pictured. It's NOT compatible with my Nikon D-750, nor my D-810. I am a huge fan of their new QD socket system, which makes it possible to attach a shoulder strap without having to take the tripod plate off. I was really excited to have a universal plate that would allow me to put my camera on my RRS ballhead and easily and without fuss attach my strap to it. This is NOT it. :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Direction for RRS Really Works I use the RRS L-bracket with my OMD EM1 Mk II, and it has two bosses (sockets) for a swivel they sell that is made by Magpul, and is used for slings for rifles. I bought the BQDS Bi-Directional Plate and mounted it on the Panasonic 100-400 lens. The plate is solid, compact and light weight. I modified a BlackRapid sling using two of the swivels (one as part of a safety tether.) The BQDS plate allows me to carry the camera by the lens using the swivel, which makes a very secure way to carry the camera when the lens is mounted, and facilitates instant removal of the sling when I want to mount the lens on a tripod. I believe that RRS is on the right path with this plate as well as some of their newer plates and brackets, and this system, adapted from Magpul, should become a standard for people who use sling-type straps but want really fast access to their plates or brackets for tripod use.
