I bought this adapter to go with my Cotton Carrier System. Basically, a round Cotton Carrier "insert" attaches to the bottom of this adapter. The camera has the quick release plate on it as usual, which clamps into the top of the adapter.

With the help of this adapter, this makes the Cotton Carrier system a breeze to use with a tripod. The camera is clamped onto the adapter, and the adapter is firmly secured to my chest via the Cotton Carrier vest. When it comes time to use the camera, I just unclamp it from the adapter -- then clamp it right onto my Manfrotto tripod's 322RC2 ballhead (the plate that comes with this adapter works with the 322RC2 ballhead). It makes things super quick and simple.

As for a review of the adapter itself without regard to using it with a Cotton Carrier -- suffice it to say that it's a solidly built device, holds the camera securely via its easy lever-and-clamp method, and it's compatible with most Manfrotto tripods out there. It's a nice little device.

in order to show you what the "INTERFERENCE" between Manfrotto 323 RC and Manfrotto 681 Monopod, see the attached photo.

There is significant gap between the plates that cannot be great if you use Manfrotto 323 with Manfrotto 681.

To solve the problem, I found Oben QRA-R2,which works perfectly with the Manfrotto 681 monopod. Highly recommend NOT to get the Manfrotto copy.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

I attached this to a monopod I also purchased as I wanted to be able to quickly and easily uncouple the monopod from a telephoto/body combination I was using. Mission accomplished! Not only did it work well, it was solid as all get out and never did make me feel like anything was in peril of coming apart until I wanted it to. I'll be buying this again when I have a similar need.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

Buy this item for use in a gimbal; Its construction is surprisingly solid, and its size is just right for a mirrorless, in my case the a6500. Is a great option to use it in a gimbal, but to be used on a tripie would look for another option.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

I needed this for a monopod I frequently use. I have some other Manfrotto tripods that use the same plate, so getting this was the perfect solution. It fit on the monopod easily and securely. I'm looking forward to using it for a long time to come.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

In my workflow, I'm "all RC2 all of the time". The convenience of being able to use this adapter on select 3/8" and 1/4" components in my kit has been a real timesaver that lets me swap cameras in an instant. In typical Manfrotto fashion, the 323 RC2 is rugged and can be used with confidence. I expect to buy more of these!

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

I was looking for a small quick release system to use with a sound recorder (Sony PCM-M10). This is perfect. Very rugged build quality. I am able to use this for double duty for smaller cameras as well. The price is right. I am very happy I did not listen to a local camera guy telling me I would need to buy a tripod for $70.00 in order to get the mount system.

Good solid bracket. Bought for my monopod.

By Philip

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

My small travel tripod has this style QR bracket, and my camera and 70–200mm lens have matching plates. But whenever I used my monopod, I had to take the bracket off. So I bought this for my Manfrotto monopod and all is well. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it is just a very good QR bracket and plate. Nothing more or less. If it doesn't change my life, I don't believe in giving 5 stars.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

The mounting screw on my tripod kept backing down into the tripod head; this adapter negated that problem and gave me a solid quick-release. I don't notice the plate when I'm shooting handheld and when it's closed and locked it is very secure.

This is a great product. very sturdy!! The only issue i have is that the mount is not flat and needs a spacer to let it set flat.

By Zachary

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

Very well built and durable quick release plate, however it doesn't sit flush against anything due to a bump on the bottom where a screw is housed. If that doesn't effect your use buy it, but if you do video work where you may need to screw this onto a cheese plate look elsewhere.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

I use the RC2 system quick release adapter with 200PL plate for a Manfrotto compact light aluminum tripod. This makes it easier to mount your camera quickly. There is a small lever to lock the quick release, to prevent inadvertent release of your camera. It is very sturdy and well-made. I think it is best suited for a small DSLR or mirrorless camera.

Much much better than generic versions.

Comments about Manfrotto 323 RC2 System Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Plate:

To be honest, I have a couple of these Manfrotto brand adapters and a couple of the generic cheapo adapters. I use them all, but the Manfrotto ones are definitely higher quality and I really do trust them in comparison to the generics. With the generics I feel like I have to hold my breath when I use them. I use these Manfrotto branded versions for my hand held rigs and any situation where I really need to know they are going to hold up and not give out. They work perfectly, solid construction, and piece of mind knowing they keep my equipment safe and are not going to break or fall to pieces.
