TetherBLOCK TB-QR-004G overview

  • 1Description

The thunder gray TetherBlock QR Plus Quick Release Plate is designed to adapt a camera to an Arca-type compatible quick release clamp and prevent damage to the camera's data port while tethered to a computer or hard drive.

Along the 1/4"-20 mount and anti-slip pads on the QR Plus's top surface are grooves that can channel a section of data cable into one end of the plate's length and out the other before the plate is attached to a compatible camera. This allows a USB or FireWire cable that is connected to a camera's data port for tethered photography to be secured under the camera and within the QR Plus. Before being able to reach the point at which a data cable and a camera connect, tension along the cable which could then occur from accidentally tugging or tripping on it is interrupted by the plate's grooves. Strain from abrupt and incorrectly angled detachment of a data cable that could otherwise dislodge a camera's data port or cause it to function improperly is avoided.

For direct attachment to accessories such as a tripod or straps that feature 1/4"-20 mounts, the underside of the plate is tapped with two 1/4"-20 female accessory threads.

    TetherBLOCK TB-QR-004G reviews

    QR Plus Quick Release Plate (Thunder Gray) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not inexprensive, but worth the price for me! I shoot tethered often and, probably not uniquely, have had a number of related problems. One of those was the inability of my other stuff (including an RRS L-bracket for my D810) to accommodate vertical position shooting while still holding the USB 3.0 cable securely in place. This plate has solved that problem - although it does require flipping my RRS BH-55 ball-head over into one of the slots. I have not found a better alternative; and, consider this very well made as well as thoughtfully designed. And, this is SOOO much better than the cheaper, poorer alternatives (such as TT Jerk-stopper... IMO).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Isn't fully RSS compatible I have a Really Right Stuff BH-55 with the quick lever release. When the release lever is half way open, the plate should only be able to slide, not be removed but it easily pops right off. I think the BH-55 with the screw knob would be compatible so if you have that, you'll likely be in luck! The set screw that attaches to the bottom of the camera is made from a very soft material. If you apply a decent amount of pressure to it, it strips. To me, this is a design flaw and won't hold up over time, especially under the demands of professional use. Overall, the idea and concept is useful but I will be returning mine and look for something with a better build quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prevents Damage Being on location with the QR Plus Quick Release Plate prevents inadvertent tugs on the tether cord, keeps the camera from being damaged and prevents stops in daily workflow. Fantastic that it fits on an Arca Swiss head when I'm not caring the camera around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best solution yet I’ve fought a lot of connection issues and even had to have the USB port repaired once. This paired with the right angle micro USB creates a solid connection that hasn’t failed yet. And it’s so much easier to hand hold with this setup.
