Giottos MH-658 Quick Release Arca Style Clamp Camera Mounting System with MH-648 Plate


About Giottos MH-658

The MH-658 quick release system with matching 1/4"-20/3/8" camera plate is compatible with style of plates and components that fit the "Arca Swiss" standard such as Arca-Swiss, Graf/Studioball, Wimberley, Foba, etc.

It is an ultra-compact "clamp" style quick release system, which features both horizontal (on the base of the adapter) and vertical (incorporated into the locking knob) bubble levels, as well as anti-twist reversible tabs on the plate that prevent slippage when using the head in a vertical position.

This sliding camera plate locks down by turning the side-mounted locking knob. A safety push-button lock found on the side of the adapter is designed to add additional security.

Works very well


from Fremont, Ca  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Works very well with the "L" bracket for secenic shots. Very easy to rotate from vertical to horizontal in seconds. Clamps down very tightly on the bracket with no slipping. Works just as good as the more expensive verisons on the market.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this fit a Bushhawk camera shoulder mount using a Can 7D?
Andrew R  In theory it may be possible, however we do not currently offer Bushhawk shoulder mounts and cannot confirm fit. I understand that Bushhawk does make an Arca-Swiss compatible QR clamp/plate accessory specifically for use with their should mounts.
Shopper  How many mounting holes does the clamp have ? This is for a special project where I need more than one mounting hole for the clamp to prevent movement.
BRIAN S  Well the clamp that mounts to the tripod head has 1 bolt hole for mounting but has a groove that a metal tab on the head sits in to prevent twisting. The plate that mounts to the camera or lens has 2 bolts for mounting. As long as your lens or camera mount has 2 mounting holes that are the right distance apart it works fine. I use this system on a Sigma 500mm F4.5 thats mounted to a Nikon D300s with a MBD10 battery pack and there is no movement at all.
