    577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 554.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly built, convenient switching Solid construction, a must for people who need to switch configurations frequently and quickly. The plate is fairly short and so not the most stable for attaching something like a slider to a tripod, but you can buy a longer plate that fits into the 577 adapter. As for compatibility, it is NOT the same size as the 357 plate. It is the same size as many of the Manfrotto head plates, such as the 504HD. It is the same size as the Sachtler FSB-4 head plate, not sure about the bigger Sachtlers. It is not compatible with the head plate on the Vinten Vision Blue, though the 357 might be.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick Release Plate lets me use lighter gear I have a cannon xf300. I recently had to fly to location where I didn't want to take heavy gear. My regular manfrotto tripod and 503 head were too big to lug on trip. I had and old Linhoff small tripod and small manfrotto 128LP head. I needed to slide the camera on small tripod base to balance the camera. This plate let me adjust the camera on my tripod and blance it for shooting. Also the camera plate is the same one that goes into my large tripod so i don't need to switch anything. I can go back and forth between two tripods with one plate. Worked so well can now use smaller tripod more often. Before it wasn't an option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I plan on buying 2 more I purchased this quick realease out of desperation and frustration with my glidecam 2000. It seems that once the glidecam was properly balanced (a 3-4 hour endevor with a panasonic dvx 100b) I would have to take it off for use with my shoulder rig or tripod, making me start the process all over again. With the Manfroto 577 QR, I can bounce back and forth between all of my stabilizing equipment without missing a beat. The only problems I have encountered so far are very specific to my personal situation. The added wieght on the glidecam requires extra counter wieghts, which does put more strain on my back(I'm using the DV Sportster rig).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic on Glidecam I screwed 2 bolts that came with my glidecam xr-pro into the bottom of the plate when mounting it and it is as solid as stone. It maintains it's exact position so I've only ever had to balance my camera once and then spend 2 seconds making a minor adjustment when I reattach it. The knob to tighten the sliding plate to the base of the glidecam is able to extend slightly when rotating it so that it just misses hitting the base of the glidecam. That feature alone makes it feel like it was made specifically for glidecams. I spent 12 hours filming a music video last week and it sped up my workflow exponentially.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Handy and Easy to Use Adapter I bought this quick rapid release adapter for the sake of mounting my camera on different equipment (tripod, slider, Steadicam Merlin, etc.) This adapter went on my Steadicam Merlin and it was easy to mount! Pretty much, just screw it in and youre all set. The adapter is so simple to use, it just makes mounting your camera on multiple equipment so much easier than doing it the hard way (screwing, rescrewing mounting screws). The only thing not so great about it, is the weight. It's a little heavy, but not so much that it interferes with balancing and such. It probably just means that this adapter is made of material that is sturdy and long lasting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from sturdy piece of equipment I use this plate for my Glidecam with dslr. It is well built however a bit pricey. I was happy that the plate itself fits for MVH500AH Flat Base Fluid Head which I have on my tripod. In that case I don't have to swap plates when changing from Glidecam to tripod.The only problem is that to use it with Glidecam you must undo the screw in the lever, adjust (rotate) the lever and put it back in order to lock it. This is because there is no space underneath the plate. It is a one time thing and once you know it it shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes (there are tutorials on youtube). Other than that I have nothing bad to say about the thing. Well built.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality. I loved the quality, material and easy of use. There are other reviews that mention problems because there is not enough clearance for tightening, because of height. The space between camera body and the base is very small, they are correct. Although I did have this problem I was able to overcome it because I am using a VF-4 View Finder from PNC and the mounting bracket gave me the extra clearance that I needed. I own a Canon T4I and are very satisfied with this product, but if you don't have the extra space in between you wont be able to tighten the plate. I am using it on a tripod and will get another one to leave it on my rig. It's your call.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quick Mount Device For Any Tripod Most all tripods have either their own camera mount design or someone else's design and many have some form of quick release. However, many of those mounts are poorly designed or for the most part certainly not interchangable. Such is the case with our tripods. This device allows us to mount the bottom plate to our tripod's quick mount which then converts our tripod to the Manfrotto/Bogen quick mount safetly receiver and then mount the plate to the bottom of our cameras and doing so allows us to easily mount and demount camera's on all our tripod's universally with the tapered guide rails.
