A Bargain!

This is a really nice plate. It measures 50x39x10mm and comes in a velour, drawstring pouch with a hex wrench. I do wish the plate were bi-directional though. It would be easy for whomever manufactures these plates to add bevels to the other sides of the base. Still, it's a bargain and a much nicer plate than I expected for the $$.

Works good [...]

I use this on an Adorama f-2 ball head. I added this to my Canon 100-400 telephoto zoom lense. I just leave it on all the time so I can mount the body, or lense on the tripod. [...]

Good product

By

I got this to put on the new lens that I bought, so that I wouldn't have to take the one off my camera.

Gets the the job done

By

from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

Good product. Works well. Only downside is that you have to use a screwdriver or coin to fasten the plate to the camera. you cant hand tighten it. I think this is annoying, but the photographer i was working for doesnt seem to mind. I guess it gives some people more peace-of-mind than hand tightening it.

Quick Release Plate

By

from Grand Rapids, Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought extra release plates for my larger lenses, this makes swapping out lenses a lot easier and saves time. These quick release plates work well, are reasonably priced and thus a great value.

Extra plate for a great tripod.

Extra Release Plate for my tele lens

By

from Grand Rapids, Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

I added this extra plate to my order so that I could attach it to my 200-500 zoom lens. I consider it more of a convenience item. It is solid and does have a safety catch incorporated so that the lens or camera assembly can't accidently slide off the tripod.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MICHAEL H  I use several cameras and needed several quick release plates for the F-1 ballhead so I could quickly change cameras. I purchased two additional plates which provided that capability nicely.
Shopper  Are there substitute plates for this product?
JOHN H  These are Arca-style plates that are produced by many manufacturers - Kirk, Really Right Stuff, Desmond, and many others. Kirk and RRS produce plates molded to specific camera bodies so they don't slip or rotate easily.
Carolyn S  Will this fit the tripod Ambico V-0554?
SALVADOR A  I took a look at the Ambico tripod and I do not believe the Flashpoint quick release plate will fit the Ambico tripod head.
