Great little item

I use this device to modify my regular tripod screw to fit the smaller tripod hole on my GigaPan. It negated the use of a ball head which added too much additonal weight.

Perfect accessory


from Nottingham, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

Needed this Tripod Adopter plate to go with the Adorama Macro Rail - now I able to get those close up macro shots. Perfect!


Solid and works as promised


from Denver, CO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Solid, lightweight platform. Does what is needed.


A much needed gadget for all


from Carson,CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Everyone who travels and takes photos should have this adapter. Comes in handy when you borrow a tripod with only a 3/8" mounting screw and no tripod head.


Tripod Adapter Plate


from Hobe Sound FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This adapter plate converts a 3/8-16 thread used by some tripods to the more common 1/4-20 thread which is the standard on cameras. It is solid, well made, and works as advertised.


Exactly what you would expect

This item works perfectly!


Perfect Adapter


from Bellingham, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The adapter is the only one I could find that was heavy duty.

Questions about this item:

Alex L  Hi! Will this allow me to use a compact point and shoot on my tripod? Right now the screw fits an slr, which I do not have. Thanks for your advice! Yours, Alex
WINSTON V  as far as i know, the tripod mount is standard so it should fit on a compact point and shoot.
Ronald L  I own a Monfrotto 3265 Grip Action Ball Head with Quick Release Plate. I need some type of adapter to use it on a tripod because the threaded hole (camera mount) is larger than the standard 1/4-inch 20 screw; I'm guessing it's (the tripod mount) a 3/8" - 16. Can you suggest what to do? Is the Manfrotto 120 Adapter Plate what I need? Ronald Lewis Vermont
WINSTON V  not sure about your intention. im using my adapter so i can place my off camera flash to a mic stand.
