Oben QR-53 Reviews

The Curse of the Arca Standard

By Sean
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-19

This plate seems sturdy, the black finish looks and feels to be of decent quality, and the rubber pads provide friction to help keep things in place. The issue I ran into is that this plate is too narrow in the critical dimension (width) to work with all of the different Arca-type receivers/clamps I tried it in. It fits well in an Oben QRA-A2 for example, but in a Kessler Crane Kwik Release Receiver, this slightly-too-narrow plate cannot be fully clamped in place. For those who don't know: this is a reoccurring theme when dealing with arca-compatible plates, as 38mm wide is not a true standard, and is treated by many manufacturers as more of a guideline. Small dimensional variances, be they intentional or accidental, can make items incompatible. For example: A Desmond DPL-115 plate I measured is 37.95mm wide, and works with all the receivers I tried it in. This plate measures 37.64mm wide, and does not. One-third of a mm can make all the difference. What is surprising to me is that a different Oben QR plate I have (the QR-10) measures 38.3mm wide. That's two plates from the same manufacturer with a difference in width of two-thirds of a mm. In a situation like this, that's a lot! Perhaps Oben needs to take a look at their quality control (or the QC of whatever factories they contract with). tl;dr: this plate may or may not work with all of your clamps/receivers, but the best chance of success is with clamps that allow for more variance in plate width.

Great plate!

Using this on my Nikon 800mm to balance the lens on my ball head for stationary shots, works perfectly. Great value

Sturdy, flexible positioning; good fit in Arca

I bought the plate to go on the Nikkor Z 100-400mm (nb: same foot as the Z 70-200mm); because a full new arca foot was expensive. The QR-53 fits okay _except_ that you need to move a screw to the centre whole as the minimum distance in the two channels is too long. This doesn't seem a problem and the plate holds tightly. There is plenty of length to adjust a the camera on the tripod to how you like it afterwards; plus it gives you more to hold when carrying. Overall - does what it says at a fraction of the price of a new foot.

It works

Bought this as an upgrade to the plate that I had because it was too short. Perfect purchase and I'm more confident that the lens won't fall off given better contact with the collar. Rugged and well made.

2 screws cannot align but you list it as a recommended option for the 400 lens. This should not be listed as compatible.... Only fits one thread..needs both!

No, the Magnus VT-4000 Tripod System with Fluid Head does not work with the Oben QR-53 Long Lens Quick Release Plate (5.3"). the VT-4000 uses this quick release plate, https://bhpho.to/3nINBSC .

The Tamron G2 150-600mm does not need a plate since it already has a built in Arca Swiss style foot.
