Giottos MH-642c Quick Release Spare Plat


from Vancouver WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have purchased several of these to use on more than one camera. Very easy to install and use. The only minor problem was the loop on the tightening bold would get in the ways sometimes, easily resolved.


Perfect fit!


from Aloha, OR  -  Semi-pro Photographer

What can I say, it's a prefect replacement for the lost quick release plate for the MH-5001 head. Still not understanding how I lost the first one so I bought TWO. One does not come off the camera and the other is a spare or can be used for a video cam.


Slick Device


from Stuart Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

The guy that invented this should get a prize. This thing makes it very easy to switch from my video cam to a DSLR


Very econmical spare plate


from Hilton, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Econmical enough that you can easily put them on all your camera bodies and long lenses.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOHN O  I purchased this so that my camera (Canon 7D) will fit on my wif'e's Manfrotto 7301YB-BB triipod, head and carrying bag kit.
joe s  Does this fit a Vivitar VPT-120 tripod? If not, do you have one that fits?
JOHN O  I do not know if the MH-642 Quicki Release Spare Plate will fit your Vivitar VPT-120 tripod. Most of the quick release plates are different between heads, even between the same brand of heads.
David S  Dave S. I have a Tundra Video Ultima 8 tripod but have misplaced the quick release head. Will this head fit the tripod I have?
WILLIAM A  I have a Giottos MH-1000 on my tripod and these are the quick release plates for this head. I bought two more so I don't have to swap them between lenses and still have one mounted to the camera. I do not know if these will work on the head you have for your tripod.
David S  Thanks William. I'll try the quick release plate you mention. Seems the one for the Tumdra I have is out of production but this seems to fit the specs. Dave S
