    Cartoni A500 reviews

    A500 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tears of joy from this product Man. What a product. I had an incredible need for one specific quick release plate, and sure enough, this was it. I ordered, and received, and used, and my life has never been the same. My friends say things like you really have it all together now and you seem different, like more handsome and confident probably. If you are in the market for the A500 Quick Release Plate by Cartoni, this is the one for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Cartoni Fluid Heads Works just like the factory head. Excellent for replacements or to have one for each apparatus, ie, jibs, cranes, etc.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT SO HAPPY I'll be calling to find out why this cheap plastic but pricy quick release plat doesn't fit my tripod though it's made for it. Me camera slides around and would fall out if I used it. They don't allow zero stars or I would give it that.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sloppy This plate is inferior to those found on some higher-end consumer tripods. The sliding piece that holds the screw and guide pin is narrower than the channel it rides in. This allows it (and thus the camera) to shift from side to side within the channel. Thus only the clamping pressure of the plate keeps the camera from flopping from side to side, which is not reliable and defeats the purpose of the guide pin. That's a shame on a $2000 tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best to go with originals! Someone stole my tripod plate, or I misplaced it stupidly and in a panic i immersed myself on the internet. I found compatible plates made and shipped from China for about $ bucks, but I knew if I could find the original it would be in B&H. It is pricey, but it's made in Italy, where other great but pricey stuff is made, like the Vespa, Lamborghini and Ferrari. B&H is always my solution, great prices and excellent service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only thing that fits the Focus HD fluid head Ive tried to find alternative and less expensive plates with no luck. I misplaced my original one, so I bought two replacements to make sure I had one in the future if that happens again. Probably $ would be a fair price; however, manufacturers of plates for other heads sell them for about $. So you can see how they are overpriced. But, like I said, they're the only thing that fits this head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth replacing my old one My plate I replaced had a very slight looseness that would cause me to have a wobble in some of my moving shots. Being very picky I would beat myself up about this occasional shake. I decided to try and replace this plate and now my tripod is totally solid and smooth who would have thunk it... LOL The new one fits tight , I guess all the on and off wears the edges.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A spare release plate I needed a spare release plate for my Cartoni Fluid HD head. This is the only one that will fit it. The plate works as designed. My only complaint with this plate, as most other plates for other tripod heads, is that they are over-priced.
