Manfrotto 625 overview

  • 1Description

Manfrotto's hexagonal 625 RC0 system quick release adapter is designed as a heavy duty addition to any existing tripod head. It comes supplied with both 1/4-20" and 3/8"-16 threaded connection sockets, and also includes two "set" screws (to attach directly to legs). The camera connection is either via 1/4-20", or with 3/8" stud provided.

The RC0 has a new name for simplicity's sake, but has been a mainstay in Bogen's lineup of products for many years. It gives lots of surface area to connect the camera to the quick release.

The list of plates available for the RC0 system is thorough and exhaustive-there's the larger 3/8"-16 threaded camera screw if you need it, flat-bottomed plates allowing cameras to be set flush upon tables with their plate attached, an "architectural" plate with an adjustable anti-twist lip to prevent twisting of the camera on the plate when in the vertical orientation, an anti-theft plate with incorporated metal cable to tether to something immobile nearby and a plate with a very large 4 x 4" surface area for large format cameras. There's even the special 340 elbow bracket, which allows you to change between horizontal and vertical orientation without moving the head itself.

    Manfrotto 625 reviews

    625 (3296) RC0 Hexagonal Quick Release Adapter Set is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glidecam convenience I purchased this set for my Glidecam 2000 because I was simply tired of disassembling the Glidecam head plate to mount my DSLR and Camcorder. I couldn't be any happier with this quick release set. Granted, it adds a bit of weight but not too much. The locking mechanism can be a little tricky but it is manageable. I will be purchasing more hexagonal mounting plates for my other gear so I don't have to swap it between caneras. It's very easy to screw in the mounting plate. Only issue I have with the plate is that the screw sticks out and you can't stand your camera with the plate on. Other than that, I'm happy. It's built tough and feels solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from actually it works well I have two Manfrotto 468MGRC4, ball heads, which I acquired mid 2005. But I converted both to 468MGRC0. Reasons: the 340 right angle brkt; and in 2009 I acquired a 229 Super Pro pan & tilt head.The advantages of being able to swap QR plates, between various heads, is obvious. But how well does it work? I have used this system, which is built-in to the 229 Super Pro head without incident. This pan & tilt head is used only for a heavy camera and lens combination. The Mamiya RB67proSD. Locks securely and releases easily. Requires some practice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for build-it-yourself projects I had an old Beseler enlarger that was gathering dust and I decided to turn it into a copy stand. I removed the enlarger head, added a small metal plate to the bracket that the enlarger head was mounted to, and attached this adapter to the center of the plate. After a fresh coat of paint, the finished product looks great and functions as anticipated. ... A comparable copy stand would have cost between $480.00 and $620.00. I'll probably get one or two more of these adapters for other projects I have in mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great/Solid Quick Release Adapter This adapter is a bit tricky to get used to but once you've done that, it is strong and stable and does the job it's intended to do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Quick Change is Magical! I need to change cameras quickly and needed a sturdy QR Adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had one for years I can't think of a better quick release. I have had one for years. It is definitely professional quality. I have shot over 300 weddings and used this bracket in every one of them. It is super heavy-duty. Grips tight and secure. Once you lock the plate into the base give the locking lever a little extra push to be sure it is extra secure. It works with Medium Format and DSLR cameras. I recommend it very highly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good but manufacturing off I bought this to replace the same quick release I already had but the quick release lever had broken. There are two screws that mount it to the ball and one of the holes wasn't drilled all the way through and neither of them was drilled out to let the screws be flush with the level of the receiver like the old one was. Otherwise this is a very sturdy system for holding larger cameras and equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for large format use I give this four stars instead of five only because the bubble levels dried up over time. I've had this adapter and hexagonal plates for many years now, and I love the system. I use it with a large format monorail camera, which is heavier than anything else I have.Manfrotto used to make heads with the hexagonal plate quick releases built in. I think people didn't know what they were all about. I've always wanted the hydrostatic ball head with the hexagonal quick release, and I want to get one, now that they've come down in price so much. Unofortunately I don't see the one with the hexagonal quick release mount here in the B&H website anymore, so I'll be getting another one of these adapter sets, to mount on the 468MG.The hexagonal system is great for its speed and versatility. I don't know how someone dropped their camera. You ALWAYS check by pulling on the release lever (you have to press a lock release in order to pull out the lever and release the plate, once the lever has closed, so you pull on the lever once you put the camera or lens mounted, just to check that the lever has actually locked - simple) and then by rocking your camera/lens, to see if it's locked down (or up - I mount my camera hanging from my ball head, between the legs of my big Benbo tripod sometimes, so I can get the lens really close to the ground).This system is great, because you can keep your plates mounted to your cameras and lenses, and you have six positions to choose from, rather than just two, when mounting them on your tripod/monopod head(s). With most ball heads that doesn't matter much, but it's nice to have the extra positions if you don't want to adjust your head, and it's nice to be able to mount without having to think too much about position - no turning the camera/lens 90 degrees, just to lock it down to the head with these hexagonal plates - you can mount them with just a slight turn instead. Remember that these plates hold your camera/lens in a very positive way, so it doesn't turn by mistate or accident either (unlike those round quick-release plates). You see, these hexagonal plates fit any way you put them into the adapter - in six different positions (30 degrees apart, rather than 90 degrees). That's why I originally bought into this system. I've never seen a better quick-release system.Something you can do with these quick release adapter and plate sets is you can mount two of them on a pair of tripods (or tripod legs) and mount one hexagonal quick release plate on your expensive ball head (use the flat-bottom plate for convenience). This way you don't have to buy two expensive ball heads. Instead, you can quickly move the ball head from tripod or monopod to your bigger tripod or camera stand.
