    Arca-Type Quick Release Plate for Canon 40D, 50D, Nikon D5000, Sony A300 with VG-B30AM is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fits very snugly I have the plate mounted onto my vertical grip on my EOS 40D. Since it is not very thick I can still hold the grip very securley in my hand. My Arca Swiss Ballhead holds this plate good and fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite pricey but great plate. If you are looking for a plate for your 40d or 50d, and don't want a generic plate that has the tendency to let your camera swivel, this is a great choice. This acratech plate becomes one with the camera, without adding much weight. Highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, light plate. The added weight on 50D is not noticeable and the camera is secure on Ultimate ball head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! This release plate fits the camera base perfectly, no more twisting on the ballhead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Plate Very good plate, lightweight and attaches firmly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, though at a price Very nice quick release plate. Attaches firmly to my Canon 50D, no play and no sign of loosening even in difficult positions with semi-heavy lenses. Not sure I'm so happy about the matte finish, though, it sort of goes against the semi-matte camera body, but of course that is a very minor detail. A bit expensive for what it is. But in the end: Higly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plate This plate works with both my Acratech V2 Ballhead and my Really Right Stuff ballhead. Well made, solid, fits the 40D like a glove. The only thing missing that the RRS plate has is a threaded hole in the bottom so a camera with plate attached can be screwed into a monopod or a tabletop tripod without taking the plate off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom plate fits the spot Several companies make fine plates. I'm very pleased with the Acratech ones. Custom for the 40D and well-made. It's easy to buy directly from Acratech, but very convenient that B&H stocks these.
