Works with the MH-1000, MH-1001 & MH-2000 Ballheads, as well as Linhof and other ballheads that have a 3/8"-16 threaded female hole as their stems. It is not Universally compatible being as this quick release adapter has a MALE 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the bottom.
The Giottos MH-500 is commonly used for Portraits and more.One reason why the Giottos MH-500 is popular is because of its Attaches firmly

I bought this item, MH500 Pro Quick Release Adapter and Plate, because my cameras do not have centered tripod sockets and other Q/R plates hang over the edge. I use this system to emulate an old time tripod that you screw the camera onto. Take out the plate, screw it into the camera's tripod socket, and set the plate into the Q/R base. For how long did photographers do without Q/R systems? Plan your work. The description has a warning about proper fitting with ballheads. If the ballhead stem has a 3/8-16 female opening, this item fits. It is a perfect fit on my FLM CB-38 ballhead.
I am using this with my Nikon D7000 and Giottos MH1000 ball head. It is a little bulky and screws down, rather than levers down, but if you need a solid release that does not slip and is very stable, this is a good one to get.
Fits the MH1001 ball head perfectly. Creates a compact head/plate that provides a sturdy platform for my dSLR. Well made and simple.
The most stable and easiest to use Quick Release adapter I have ever used.
