Comments about Adorama Adorama Tripod Quick Release Shoe - Small:

I have used this small quick release for over 30 years and find it super easy to use. It has never failed me in the field. I do a lot of cave photograph and use the quick release in total darkness and find it easy and reliable to use. Out doors I can carry the camera on the tripod and not worry it will ever fall off. This quick release is perfect for 35mm and is OK for 120 such as the Hasselblad.

Comments about Adorama Adorama Tripod Quick Release Shoe - Small:

I bought this to attach my flash to a Stroboframe bracket. I wanted something small, lightweight, and easy to use.

I didn't need something ultra durable like the Manfrotto quick release which i also have and love.

This product just doesn't fit the bill. It is poorly constructed and the process of attaching and releasing the shoe is neither quick nor easy, especially in a dark environment, which is often the case during event shoots. It even came out of the package covered in oil.

Nice design, bad thread

Comments about Adorama Adorama Tripod Quick Release Shoe - Small:

Very nice, well built quick release shoe. However, the base mounting thread will NOT accomodate the thread in a tripod such as the Slik Mini-Pro V. You either have to re-tap the existing thread in the quick release shoe or find a tripod to which it will attach. Stupid thread choice. Too bad!
