Stroboframe 300-BASE reviews

Quick Release - Camera Auto 300-QRC - BASE UNIT ONLY is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Secure I use this to attach my camera to my tripod, while the Stroboframe flash bracket is in use. Since the bracket itself attaches to the bottom of the camera, there is no other way to use a tripod. This is a sturdy piece of equipment that easily attaches, and once in place on the tripod, makes attaching and removing the camera to and from the tripod quick and easy. It holds the camera securely in place as well. I had sticker shock before buying it, but I'm glad now that I have it. I didn't understand that I would need this piece when I bought the stroboframe flash bracket, but you live and learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From medium format to digital D5100 Niko Going from Pentax 645 to D5100 Nikon these Quick release units are the greatest to us. I have never found a unit that attaches so firmly as these do. I am going to invest in more of these in the near future. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Release Heaven All my cameras and Q-flashes have the base plate for quick, secure, 100% reliable mounting. It only makes sense to outfit compatible equipment efficiently. Having used this product for 15+ years, my assessment is based on ease of use, safety, security and reliability. They look nice too, even the older ones with a scratches touched up with a black Sharpie pen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control in newer unit. I have two of these base units serving me well for several decades. Recently I ordered a third unit to dedicate to my monopod as I was tired of constantly putting one on every time I wanted to use monopod. The threading on the new unit was not good and would not screw on easily to the same monopod screw head that always worked with my two older units. I double checked and they worked fine. When I tried to apply a little pressure to get the new unit on it snapped the monopod screw head. Not wanting to bother returning the base unit I wound up drilling out the now plugged up screw hole and tapping new larger threads. I then die cut the stubby end of the broken monopod screw to fit the larger hole permanently. For the price they charge they should have better quality control. Incidentally,the company that distributes the monopod is a few miles from me and they gave me a replacement screw bolt so I can still use the monopod normally with other accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient addition to flash bracket I just put this on my bracket today but it worked great with the testing I put it through. Luckily I got the universal anti-twist plate even though it had been discontinued. Now I can finally use my bracket for events :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nothing better on the market the greatest quick release on the market. When it locks in there is no wiggle room which makes it rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design and function I have owned a base unit and several camera plates for many years. The Stroboframe 300-QRC is low profile, lightweight, secure and fast. I keep it mounted on a medium sized ball mount for my still camera. It holds a D300 with MC10 battery grip solidly. You compress the spring in the base unit by pressing the tab in on the left. Then you aim the leading edge of the base plate toward the red corners and drop the camera onto the base unit. The camera plate presses down on a trigger pin protruding from the base unit and snaps a locking jaw onto the trailing edge of the camera plate, securing the camera instantly. The camera locks solidly to the base with great confidence. Press the tab, tilt the camera, and it's free again. No twisting of a knob, no wondering if it's secure. It's either on or off. And you do it hands free. It's never failed me. The early camera plates were machined with corners on one edge only. This meant the plate had to be on the camera in a proper direction. Plates today are octangular and can be mounted on the camera without concern about being backward or forward. The only thing the Stroboframe QRC doesn't do is allow fore/aft CG adjustment, so it's not ideal for video. For that, something like the Manfrotto 577 is a good solution.
