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.

It's a great system. Really easy and efficient locking and releasing mechanism. Perfect match for my macro photography rail system. Sturdy design and hopefully, it will last for a generation. Do not hesitate to invest this if you have a good tripod.

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

Item is well built and good for heavy duty. They are little heavier than it looks like. I have bought one unit of 323 RC2 system and bought few additional 200PL-14 plates. Adaptor is always attached to my tripod and 200PL-14 plates attached to my lenses and camera bodies. This way I could easily mount them on my tri-pod. 
 Recommend this unit and it will be your humble servant for years.

I got it for my monopod which is also a walking stick so didn't want a large and didn't want to be screwing the camera on and off all the time. This works well for that.

I bought this QR after getting it on a new Manfrotto Monopod. I've since added a Manfrotto tripod, and I've mounted the QR on a Tilt/Pan for robotics. Next set goes on a Bowens Illumitran film copier.

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

I bought this to use as a quick-release on a video stabilizer.
It works great. The only complaint I would have is that you can't mount it FLAT on that surface, because the back of it isn't flat on the bottom. I mounted it where it will still work, and I'm good with that.

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

These quick releases are very well made, reliable and strong. I have 4 of them. I use them on my flash brackets with flash cords so I can remove the flashes quickly for those times when I need to hand hold the flash. Works great!

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

I use the Manfrotto 200 PL plate on all my stuff, and love it to death. Alas, not all my mounts are equipped for the Manfrotto 200PL. This adapter fixes that. I just installed one on a Opteka Steadyvid Pro, allowing me to pop the camera off without messing up the balance or removing my existing mounting plate. The reason I did not give this 5 stars is that it has a little lock on a back corner that protrudes down. This required me to get some washers and make up a longer 1/4-20 mounting screw for the stabilizer, in order to set the adapter up higher. This is not hard to rig, but it would be just dandy if the adapter anticipated this need and came with a spacer and spare screw or two, or they listed them as "you may also like".

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

As a DSLR and camcorder user, I've adopted the Manfrotto 200PL mounting plate as my standard, and I love it.  I use two nice Manfrotto tripods equipped for it, and have the plate on everything.  But I also have some odd mounts that don't use it.  I just got an Opteka SteadyVid Pro stabilizer, and this adapter allowed me to use it without yanking off the 200PL from the camcorder, and also make the mounting position repeatable.  One problem:  be aware you may need spacers under this adapter to allow it to clear the little brass lock that extends underneath, and you may need a few 1/4-20 truss screws longer than stock to mount thru the spacers.  That said, I'm about to order two more of these.

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

Have used Manfrotto's quick release adapters for years. Much easier to use than others and readily available. Place an adapter on top of the tripod AND on top of your head and plates on the bottom of the head and camera and we are able to swap between 5 different types of head. The RC2 system has sufficient rigidity to support any camera/lens combination. We even use it with our binoculars (suitably modified with a plate attached).
