Most Liked Positive Review

 

I trust this to hold my gear!

I use this for just about everything I need that can use a mount. I've had several of these mounting plates for a while. They are solid, won't rotate, and definately won't slip apart. The locking feature is positive and works. I did have couple of the RC2 and RC0 plates for other things, I gave those away. If you have expensive gear, get something that works and won't let you down. This plate system is it.

solid but overly complicated

I definitely like the tripod head itself, as it performs like a much more compact version of the 229, so it's strong, with independently adjustable axes, great for large format field work. The tripod plate however, is kind of unnecessarily large, as well as a little awkward to mount to the head. I really have to double check that it's on properly to feel comfortable with this QR plate. I think Manfrotto has, since I bought mine, come out with better, smaller tripod heads that use better, smal...

I think Manfrotto has, since I bought mine, come out with better, smaller tripod heads that use better, smaller plates. I'll keep this head, but if I lose or break it, I'll go a different direction.

A nice spare plate

By

from Fuquay Varina, NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Works with the Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Head. I have two of these tripod heads and I own a plate for every attachment I use with those heads. I like the fact that this plate comes with two different sized screws - I ended up using both screws with my Horseman LD/Nikon D800E combination.

Exactly as advertized

Lost a star due to 1/4 and 3/8 screws not being stainless. Worry about their strength when attaching heavy equipment. I will replace the 3/8 screw with stainless steel.

A Must-have

By

from Iceland  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I had to get this together with my new EOS 5D Mark III, since I shoot a lot of scenery and panorama. I use my flexible tripod to macro shots as well. The mounting plate is very solid and snaps easily to my tripod head

Necessary item

By

from oakland east bay  -  Photo Enthusiast

With this heavy duty system it's just too much to move the mounting plate from lens to lens. Now that I have it I can't imagine not having it!

One for each camera!

By

from Susanville CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I'm putting one of these on each of my cameras! So much better than having to attach the mounting screw each time for each camera.
