    Manfrotto 394 reviews

    394 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 410PL Plate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 150.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good concept Great product that allows you to quickly remove your camera from it's mount. However, I use the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 and I've found this this mount can be a bit too offset, sticking out from the camera a bit too much for me and my camera, for balancing on a glidecam, or for taking it off and shooting handled. The release lever takes a bit more effort to release than the 577. I'm sure this works brilliantly with the right cameras and accessories, but for me, the 577 compared a lot better for what I needed. I've also discovered that the 394 and the 577 are pretty much the same weight. And almost the same height too. Something to keep in mind if you're trying to decide between the two.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-Built and works well. I bought this strictly to use with the HD1000 Glidecam, because the quick release plate that came with that isn't that quick or convenient at all. This does everything I needed it to do and it's built really well. My only complaint, which is not necessarily the fault of this product, is the holes (for the screw) aren't spaced the same distance apart as the holes on the glidecam. This makes it so you can only use one screw rather than two. Using two would be nice to prevent the quick release adapter from rotating. Again, this is no fault of this product, just a problem the compatibility between products. It still works great with the glidecam, just not perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quick Release to standardize on I've been using other Manfrotto slide-type Quick Releases on tripods, fluid heads, monopods, camera bodies, HDSLR camera cages, sliders, and rail systems, but one thing or another (including availability) would get in the way of them being perfect for all applications. The Model 394 provides a positive lock, a small footprint, the ability to quickly move between support systems, and quick access to my gear as needs and configurations change during a shooting session. I'm about three away from being totally interchangeable, and then a bunch of Model 357s and 577s are gonna hit CraigsList.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes I have bought many of these sets over the years & have a few earlier versions from 2 decades ago. These earlier ones look beaten up but still work well. With the large area they are great for tapping & screwing permanently for an absolutely rock solid base & or if you have no intention of removing it. Also used a set in the car for mounting non camera equipment for quick release. Have also used one on my Manfrotto 400 head permanently screwed to the round plate, & to & between Novoflex rails. If you bolt on one set at right angles you can rotate 2 long & short rails for priority of movement by swapping rails top to bottom.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Accessory I keep te quick release adapter on my tripod head as a permanent fixture. I usually leave the plate on my Nikon D300. WhenI use the Nikkor 300mm f4 lens, I shift the plate from the camera to the lens. I plan to buy two more plates as I add a Nikkon D800. The unit is very sturdy and works well. The two levels are what I needed and drove the choice of the low profile adapter. Once I realized how the unit worked, it is easy to use, convenient and quick. However, the instructions were of little help in the leaning process. As a result,I would buy it again but would be careful about selecting to whom I would recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly awesome These are fantastic for quick work on small/solo shoots. I can put one one my tripod, one on my shoulder rig, and one on my gimbal and quickly move from one to another without having to adjust anything. This is particularly useful for a gimbal because I never have to rebalance it. My few complaints: You can't (from what I found) purchase ONLY the bottom piece, causing me to have a ton of extra top pieces collecting dust. Also, you CAN connect the plate to your camera using two screws (yay, secure attachment!), but you CANNOT connect the bottom piece using two screws (boo, poor attachment!). I haven't had a problem yet but I would feel better if the bottom had two inline screw mounts like the top plate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An easy fix. I put this on my neck strap. Taking the camera on and off the strap is so fast it allows me to switch from the tripod/monopod to a strap with ease.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NICE QUICK RELEASE! The Manfrotto 394 low-pro is a nice quick release, of which I have several that are attached to all my gear, tripods, sliders, jib arm, for quick on and off shooting with my digital cameras for video acquistion. It's well built, and will more than likely fit most cameras and not block the battery door. The one thing about this QR is getting use to the placement of the two plates for snapping them together, that placement must be precise for the QR to snap together. That said, at first, you may find this somewhat difficult finding the snap point. Once locked into place it's solid!
