    Manfrotto 501PL reviews

    501PL Sliding Quick Release Plate with 1/4"-20 Screw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 251.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly improved A while ago I wrote a bitter evaluation of Manfrotto's L Bracket, concerned as I was that no screw caps were provided, hence allowing the screws to freely escape when no camera or lens was attached to the plates. Much to may surprise and obvious delight when I received my 4 recently ordered quick release plates, they not only had 2 screws (1/4-20 and 3/8) but they also had plastic stoppers preventing the screws to explore the outside world. Needless to say, I am delighted by this improvement for which I do not seek credit, but eventually, since I brought this to their attention, B&H may have had something to do with it, and if so, thanks a lot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expertise is the Key When ever we have called they have always directed me towards the right tech. Our church has been in a TV Ministry for the service and or religious community since 1978. Over the years we have worked with B&H. I (Donna Scott) am not a tech but surround myself with those that have the knowledge I need. The plates we bought were to replace the ones that were stolen when our cameras were. With out the plates our tripods were not usuable. I went on line found the plate I thought I needed and it was confirmed by your tech. The fit perfectly. We are now looking on your site for camera replacements. Thank you for your help.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not exact replacement! The original Manfrotto plate has a spring loaded positioning pin. This one has a fixed, plastic compression pin that gets in the way when trying to attach unless perfectly aligned. Also will not work with camera that does not have alignment hole! I kept mine rather than send it back as too much bother and I can use with an SLR if I remove the pin. Order instead the Axler 501 AXQRP501S which does have the spring loaded pin which is a better match for the original and sells for less money!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different than old plate The metal plate and screws are the same manfrotto solid build quality but the security pin is now an easily lost plastic bob. As a dslr filmmaker this is better for me since the old metal pin gave me more problems with my focus ring than security for my camera but you need to know what you're getting!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Screws easily lost. problems with DSLR I got this plate packaged with the Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 tripod. I have to admit, I'm surprised at all the stellar reviews. This plate has a few serious issues: 1) If you take the large screw out (which I did as it's not necessary to mount to my MKii, the small one is VERY easily lost.) 2) Maybe not an issue with mounting for video cameras, but with my MKII the lens blocks the knob that tightens the plate in most positions. I can make it work if the camera is set all the way to the back. Since I don't shoot with a video camera, I can't talk about it's utility for those users. But I think it's very shortsighted of Manfrotto to include this as the release plate for a head specifically marketed for DSLRs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement Plate for the Manfrotto Q5 The new Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 video/photo head comes with a sliding quick release plate but lacks the rubber mount that prevents the screws from falling out. I got this plate to replace the faulty plate that came with the head mentioned. The 501PL SQR plate is great and works perfectly as designed. It is snug and quick as advertised. Now I can really enjoy the new video/photo head because I have a plate that is as good as the head itself. The only negative is the turn screw on the side of the plate. Sometimes it will not turn tight depending on which lens I use on the camera (Canon Mark IV). It could be 1/16th of an inch smaller so it would rotate completely regardless of camera and lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite as Expected The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head comes with a revesable plate. I bought this for additional gear and it is not reversable like the plate with MH055M8-Q5. Includes a useful rubber bumper so the screws do not fall out. Screws need a coin so I modified an Induro SA-RPL-14 1/4-20 Camera Screw for SA-Series QR Plate, B&H #INSARPL14, by filing a thread off. With this swing up grip screw, I no longer need pocket coins or a screwdriver in a quiet auditorium to remove a plate. As noted by other reviews, the rubber grips do come loose at first use and need new glue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own several of these for a reason Most of my tripods and heads are Manfrotto's, and I like to always keep the 501PL on all my cameras, so I don't have to look for them when I need them. On one trip, I hiked in several miles to a great location. When I went to setup the camera on the tripod I realized I had left this unit at home. Never again!!!
