    C.O.G. Plate DV Center of Gravity Touch and Go Wedge Plate is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Solved one problem, caused another I bought this to go between my Panasonic HMC80 camera and Sachtler DV6SB tripod head. The Panasonic's mounting screw is very far forward and therefore the CG is too far back when mounted with the standard Sachtler wedge plate. The (very expensive) COG Plate just barely allows me to balance the camera on the tripod -- but it is not rigid enough, and the camera now noticeably shakes when tilted rapidly. Also, the plate intrudes over the shoulder pad on the camera and makes shoulder mounting uncomfortable. I can take it off the camera when hand-holding, of course, but that defeats the whole purpose of a quick release mechanism. Although this is a very beautifully made piece of machined metal, it is still outrageously priced, and didn't really work for me. A Manfrotto sliding quick release assembly I tried actually works better for balancing the camera, doesn't introduce as much instability, and costs about 1/4 as much.
