good plate, stops the camera twist

It works to stop the twisting of the camera as advertised. I set it up so that the overhang is on the front surface of my Nikon. This allows me to open and use the floating LCD on my Nikon 5000. Works great. Tripods without the plates are not any good. So I wanted a second one in case I lost one. So the anti-twist plate is my day driver and the old one my back up.

Won't fit 35mm or smaller cameras

Won't work on 35mm or smaller bodies, which have 1/4" female tripod screws. Comes ONLY with 3/8" screw, rather than the 1/4" that works on 35mm or smaller bodies, despite description stating 1/4" twice. Cannot replace this screw with the 1/4" screw from the 3175N because that screw is not long enough to reach the body through this plate.

1/4-20 anti-twist plate!

By

from U.S.A.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Note that Manfrotto packages this item in 2 different versions: unless packaged wrong, this kit has a 1/4-20 tripod mounting screw. I've got 2 plates and they've both been correctly packaged with the 1/4-20 screw). The basic quick-release plate that comes with the Manfrotto heads has been near-worthless for me in portrait-mode (due to severe camera slippage). However, This anti-slip plate works very well, and really should be included with every one of Manfrotto's heads. It has definitely solved my frustrations with camera slippage!

Works quite well

By

from Escondido, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Although I have switched to Arca Compatible Quick Release Systems with RRS L-brackets. This plate works quite well in preventing camera twist from lens torque when shooting with a Manfrotto RC-2 Quick Release Clamp. I had one on my camera permanently and used the stock plate which came with the head for my lenses that have tripod rings such as the 70-200mm f/4L IS.

Very stable, easy to use

By

from Vidalia, Georgia  -  Pro Photographer

This is a very useful additoin for any photographer, novice or pro. It is easy to use and very stable. This invention truly solved a problem with "camera turn" wiht a medium or long lens.

I would certinly buy this product again

By

from Vidalia, Ga.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This quick release holds the camera very firmly. It has a slightly larger platform as a base for the camera. When used in the verticle position it is very solid. I would recommend this item to any photogrpher who ever uses a tripod.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
EDWARD L  The lip did nothing for me. I took them off for my use.
David W  Will this plate fit the 494RC2 head?
ANTHONY F  I am not sure if it will fit that head, but check with Manfrotto and they will know. Also, this item will not fit some of the newer DSLR cameras, such as the Nikon D600.
Chuck W  This flip plate fits well to 3265 head and to my Nikon D70, but the sliding plate is not long enough to fit my D600. Does manfrotto manufacture a version of this flip plate that would work with a D600?
Chuck W  I checked with Manfrotto customer service as Alan suggested, and they have no plans to produce another version of this flip plate to fit larger-based digital cameras such as the D600.
