About Manfrotto MSQ6

This Manfrotto MSQ6 adapter allows you to fit the Manfrotto Q6 Top Lock quick release system to an existing photo head. The Top Lock system has been developed to offer photographers a fast, easy to use and very secure camera quick release mechanism suitable for heavy pro equipment. The camera plate clicks into the clamp from above, and as soon as it engages, it triggers a safety pin that stops the plate and camera from sliding out accidentally.

Even before the clamp is locked, the camera is securely supported. Made from lightweight aluminum, the clamp has 3 bubble spirit levels (one for each axis of rotation) to facilitate precise framing and help produce straight images in-camera, ensuring the camera's full frame is usable and reducing post-production time. A Q6 Arca-compatible plate is supplied with the adaptor. Spare plates can be purchased separately.

Manfrotto MSQ6 Features

  • Easier to use; failsafe support: Top Lock's clamp element allows the camera to be dropped in from above easier than trying to align and slide it in from the side. It has a safety pin that stops the plate and camera from out of the head, even if the QR lock is inadvertently left open.
  • Helps achieve straighter images and more accurate framing in-camera: Three independent bubbles help level the camera against all axes of rotation, ensuring the full frame is usable and also reducing time spent in post-production.
  • Lightweight and easy to carry: Made from light aluminum and stainless steel offering weight savings without any performance sacrifices.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GARY M  I thought that this would be an arca-Swiss adapter that would take other Arca-Swiss plates. But it doesn't! It only takes the Manfrotta-made Arca-Swiss â?? style plates! So, in fact, it really isn't an "adapter" at all. It only works with the plate comes with it. If you have other Swiss â?? Arca plates from other manufacturers, they won't fit.
Gil R  Is this compatable with the Arca Swiss camera plates ?
FLOYD F  I have no idea about the Arca Swiss camera plates. I think that you would want a larger quick release system if you are using it on a view camera.
MARK W  will this mount to my 494RC2 Ball head?
Andrew R  From the manufacturer: "This adapter is compatible with the following Manfrotto heads: MH054M0, MH054M0-Q2, MH054M0-Q5 MH055M0, MH055M0-Q2, MH055M0-Q5, MH055M0-RC4 MH057M0, MH057M0-Q5, MH057M0-RC4 468MG, 468MGRC0, 468MGRC2, 468MGRC3, 468MGRC4, 468MGRC5"
