Arca-Type Quick Release

An Arca-type quick release plate allows you to quickly mount your camera and lens to the gimbal head, and the included plate is designed with security pins to prevent it from accidentally slipping off the mounting platform.

Attaches to Most Lens Collars

Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting screws and included 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 bushings assure compatibility with most lens collars.

Asked by: Phil
Absolutely, the load capacity of the gimbal is 44lbs. Getting a longer plate would probably be needed so that you can slide the camera back to allow for the lcd diplay to open fully.

Is the suggest accessory Oben QR-53 Long Lens Quick Release Plate (5.3") really necessary? It comes with an arca swiss fitting.
Asked by: Michael
The answer would depend on which lens you will be using on the camera. If you are using a telephoto lens that has a tripod collar with a short base (such as a 70-200mm lens, a 100-400mm lens or a 150mm/180mm macro lens), the If you are using a large telephoto lens that has a tripod collar with a longer base, or you need a longer plate to give you more room to adjust the camera/lens' center of balance on the gimbal head, then the longer Oben QR-53 Long Lens Quick Release Plate (5.3") may be better suited for your usage needs.
