Secure Mounting Plate.

This is a very secure mounting plate. Always good to have some as spares, they are cheap enough.

How does it work?

OK, I read the reviews and everyone said it was a 'must have' so I ordered one with my tripod... now I have it and I have NO idea how to use it or what to do with it... and there are no instructions with it. It has a captured thumbscrew so the two pieces don't come apart; so I haven't a clue how it attaches between a camera and a tripod. duh...

Exactly what I needed

By

from Brattleboro, VT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I needed a second connect mounting plate for a second camera to save time when switching cameras on my tripod. This plate is exactly what I needed. Works like a charm

Simple to use

By

from Pittsburgh, Pa  -  Pro Photographer

It's a quick release plate. There really isn't much to say about it, except don't misplace it or you'll need to wait a week to use your tripod like I did...

Superb!!

By

from Spearfish, SD  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This Manfrotto 030-14 Mounting Plate is perfect!! I now have 3, and they're in use constantly! The thumb screw goes in quickly and is easily locked in, I have yet to have on loosen or back out. I highly recommend this mounting plate!

Manfrotto - what else ...

By

from Geneva - Switzerland  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Typical Manfrotto: built like a tank. Just surprised by the degree of finition that is somewhat lower than usual for Manfrotto stuff.

this is a necessity item

By

from Columbia, SC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This item is a necessity so there's nothing fancy about a review of this item. It does the job of attaching my equipment securely to my tripod. I love the hex plate design because it makes a "goof-proof" lock with the locking levers. This is a sturdy plate and is well made.

Fantastic quick change

By

from Adirondacks,NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have a Benbo tripod with Manfrotto ball and rapid release head, you just put these plates on each camera and long lens, they just snap in and release with a lever pull. This system is by far the best I've used, if you attach them correctly to each camera you may not have to reposition the shot after changing the camera.

Just what I wanted

By

from Mt. Vernon, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This mounting plate attaches well to head of tripod and is light weight and releases quickly. It is also well priced. Lost my first one that came with the head on the tripod and happy to be able to find a replacement at Adorama.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LARRY A  I want to be able to put my camera on a tripod quickly and, sometimes, to remove it quickly as well. This works with my Bogen tripod. I keep a plate on each of my cameras.
