Manfrotto 454 Overview

The Manfrotto 454 Micrometric Positioning Sliding Plate is a quick release system that allows for some positioning within the clamp for fore-aft macro adjustments.

It is the ideal tool to make precise positioning movements to achieve the perfect framed shot, for macro photography, for QTVR, and other precise copy/repro work. This plate has finger-tip control for ultra-fine positioning, but has a simple lock-release lever for fast set-up.

Two plates can be interlocked at 90° for full lateral/forward/back movement (over 4.7"). Made of extruded aluminum, the plate has 1/4"-20 and 3/8" holes and screws for tripod and camera mounting.

Replaces old part number 3419.

can i mount arca swiss clamp on rail?
Asked by: BARBARA
If you are referring to connecting a camera with an Arca-type quick release plate to the top of the Manfrotto 454 Micrometric Positioning Sliding Plate, then as long as the quick release plate you own also has a female-threaded 1/4"-20 socket on the bottom of the plate, it would be compatible for your usage needs. Not all Arca-type quick release plates have 1/4"-20 threads on the base of the plate, so it will depend on your specific quick release plate as to if it would be compatible for your usage needs. If you are referring to using a separate accessory quick release clamp that is Arca-compatible, they all usually have either a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 female tripod socket on the base of the unit, so they should be compatible. If your quick release clamp uses the larger 3/8"-16 socket, you can purchase a reducer bushing such as the Oben 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing, B&H # OB1039, for your usage needs.

I have Manfrotto 488RC4 ballhead with that RC4 quick release system. Will this railing snap on as is? The two answers below seemed to be contradictory.
Asked by: John
You use your existing plate that you normally screw into your camera and screw that plate to the botton of the Manfrotto 454 sliding plate. Then you use the screw on the Mahfrotto 454 to attach your camera.

I just received this product and the two screws were in a little plastic bag. They do not fit through the opening in the sliding rail so there is now way that I can mount my camera. Am I missing something about assembling this product?
Asked by: Susan
One end of the rail is threaded, just screw into that thread up through the rail.

What do I need to connect two of these plates at 90 degrees so as to have left/right and forward/backward movement? Do I need extra QR plates? I'd like to attach to a Manfrotto ball head.
Asked by: Steve
I purchased an extra QR plate plus the one that came with my camera, that way I could use the camera on other tripods without having to change it, you can mount it without an extra QR plate if you're only using it for this set up. You don't need a QR to attach the plates together.

question

Does anyone have experience using a Manfrotto 410 on top of the 454 or know of any reason it wouldn't work? We have been using the 410 to obtain the perfect angle for several years, but we are looking for a way to slide the entire camera setup those few critical inches or less to make obtaining the shot a lot easier.
Asked by: Robert S.
For close-up work, I use the 454 on top of my 410. It works great.
