I have this attached to the bottom of my rig. It's amazing. I can quickly move everything because of the quick release.

The quality is very high.

I am fairly happy with the quick release base and plate. I bought it for efficiency and for that it gets 2 thumbs up. The only issue I've found is that the silver latch on the side slowly gets loose, and when this happens, the plate does not stay firm when the latch is closed. It will still stay in the plate, but there will start to be wiggle room and that can often effect the shot or even the rail system (my focus puller doesn't stay flush with the lens due to this wiggle). HOWEVER, this is an easy fix, you just need to have an appropriately sized allen key to tighten it back up. Not a huge issue overall but now I realize I need to have this allen key in my backpack, or suffer the consequences. No other complaints.

i have ronin sc and the magnus vt 350 wiil it help me to move between them both fast?
Asked by: oriel
That should be possible. It is believed that the Ronin-SC has an Arca type plate. You would need to mount this to the top of the Magnus tripod.

Can anyone recommend a 15mm rod clamp assembly that will pair with this and maintain proper height for the RED Komodo ?
Asked by: Steve
To ensure proper height and full accessory compatibility, you need to use a baseplate that is designed for the Red Komodo all together.
