490 Camera Mounting Plate is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm sorry I lost the original one.. Unfortunately I lost the original plate that came with my Miller DS10 fluid head and had to buy a replacement. I use the term unfortunately because the price of this thing is RIDICULOUS. The plate was always a little weird, because the holes for 3/8 and 1/4 are on different sides of the plate, and they never seem to fit on anything. My shoulder rig, my follow focus base plate, etc.. none of them can be mounted with two screws only one at a time which is annoying. Having two screws like I can do with my Manfrotto 504hd keeps everything more secure, especially when lots of accessories are mounted to it, it stops things from sliding around

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Screw & locating pin are not attached. I have mixed feelings about this plate. Yes, it's well built and fits the DS-10 like a glove. However, the screw & locating pin piece is not attached to the plate. Every time you remove the plate from the camera, you also must keep track of that little screw/pin piece. Lose it and the plate is rendered useless. On one nighttime shoot, the piece was dropped and we didn't find it until the next morning. Would I recommend it? Well, it's apparently the only factory option, so I guess you don't have much choice. But it's hindered by a strange design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Unlike the other reviewers, I haven't had any problems with the locating pin design. I've lost countless Manfrotto plate screws but have yet to lose the Miller screw. Really, my only complaint is the price. Other than that, this plate is simple, sturdy, and works like it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for the Miller slide plate Easily attached to camera and ideal for switching between Miller tripod. The main drawback is the mounting screw which is held on by a piece of thin plastic which gets worn very quickly resulting in losing the screw making the whole thing useless!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as designed I have an older Miller 15 fluid head and needed an extra plate. This is the one for the DS-10 but it fits my 15 just fine. Well made but a little pricey IMO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mounting Plate It's an OEM Mounting Plate for a Miller DS-10. It does exactly what it's supposed to do but costs 3x more than it probably should.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but works great! I've used this plate once so far on a Sony FS700 and it worked beautifully. It's just a bit pricey for what it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced and bolt retainer is cheap Well it works but the bolt retainer is just a plastic. Pretty expensive.
