Manfrotto 577 Reviews

Does an Excellent Job

Was quite simple to mount to my Glidecam. One problem that was a minor disappointment was the 1/4 screw wouldn't go into the hole. Had to go get a tap to correct the threads. Other than that, I am satisfied with how quickly the camera can be released.

These are the original adapters for the 501/577. There are other manufacturers but their plates always seem to have compatibility issues with original shoes and vice versa so I stick with these regardless of cost.

Solid baseplate

By Shane
Rated 4 out of 5

Very sturdy, and now works as advertised. Some initial and temporary issues with the mechanism that keeps the plate from sliding off: the metal button was getting caught, making loading and unloading the plate difficult. This happened on both baseplates I ordered (hence the four stars). However, after a few uses, the issue seems to have resolved itself. They are now both working flawlessly, and have been for a while. I use these on top of two Manfrotto 055 tripods to support a slider. Having them there makes setup and breakdown quick and easy. Would recommend, but if the release mechanisms give you more than a little trouble, you might want to order a replacement.

I bought this to speed up my location shoots. I needed to be able to move my camera from tripod, to rig, to small crane and then slider. Having a bunch of these allows me to do it. Solid build and well worth the price. It saves me so much time on set.

Slide plates, drop-ins, however you describe them. In production settings they save time and boost quality. Photo-video-drone-360 media production is my job (it's almost all real estate). The Manfrotto 501PL plate became my standard because my DJI Ronin S gimbal used that size. Arca-Swiss is often more recognized. The 501PL is larger. Likely developed when medium format equipment was more common. I like the extra size and strength. I almost always blend layered exposures in Photoshop for jobs. Using old Manfrotto 3046 tripods I generally never have to align layers. Those rigs are rock solid. So I put these big plates on my gear heads, sliders and motor sliders, and the Ronin power gimbals. It's a reliable and sturdy setup.

Rapid Indeed!

I have about 5 of these and will keep buying them with every new camera support item I buy. I'm primarily an event/wedding videographer and, as you might know, speed and adaptability is the name of the game. I have to go from a tripod to a slider to a monopoly to a gimbal very quickly. A plate like this one allows me to stay within the Manfrotto ecosystem and prevent me from those awkward moments fumbling with different plates, screws, and a screw driver. Plenty of mounting points on the bottom for all sorts of applications.

Fit Manfrotto N8 fluid head? I have a Canon 5D Mark IV with battery grip and 70-200mm f/2.8 II. I need something under the lens ring to raise the camera, so that the battery grip won’t be blocked by the fluid head from moving back-forward. Will this plate help? Thanks.
Asked by: Qiao
It may work. Unfortunately, we cannot test here. My concern is the 577's height of less than an inch is insufficient for what you want to do But I would suggest trying to see if it works. If it does not, I would suggest this riser. There are other risers but they are more expensive and I do not think quite right.

question

Does this hold a Ronin Original Plate?
Asked by: Adrian
Unfortunately not. A very good solution for what you wish to do is using the CineMilled Quick-Switch Mount Plate for DJI Ronin B&H # CICM401. This will allow you to go from the Ronin to the tripod and back again.
