The Kirk PZ-141 is a quick-release camera plate that's designed specifically for the Nikon D7000. Its dovetail fits Arca-Swiss-style clamps to enable a quick release from a tripod head.
The plate is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and it includes a stainless steel Allen screw for attaching it to the camera. Two additional screws serve as safety stops; in case the clamp is inadvertently left loose, the smaller screws will help stop the camera & plate from sliding all the way off the head.
The PZ-141 plate features a sensor-centering line on the side. Two Allen keys are included with the camera plate.

Bought this for use on a Nikon D7000. Bracket has no play on the camera body, is sturdy, fits the Arca clamp on my ball head. I use it to hold the camera on the tripod ball when not using a long lens. (Long lenses require an arca replacement foot, or plate on the foot). When shooting portrait (vertical) photos, I turn the camera 90 degrees on the ball. I'm purchasing a pano-gimbal, and for portrait pano shots would benefit from an "L" bracket. I believe that I would have been better off to buy the "L" bracket from Kirk, or a two piece bracket from another manufacturer. (It's against review policy to mention other retailers.) For use on a "Side-kick" type head or pano gimbal head the L bracket woule be preferential. For most use, though, this will work just fine. Bottom Line: I would recommend this only to someone who knows for certain they would not need an "L" bracket. Otherwise, buy the Kirk L bracket or the other brand two piece bracket.
