4.0 out of 5 stars What could possibly go wrong ... 16 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
I don't know how I came to loose my original quick release plate, (& it still hasn't turned up anywhere), but I had to order a replacement for my 322RC2 head from somewhere.
I assumed that manfrotto quick release plates are all identical no matter which tripod head they originally come from - with the exception that some have a 3/8 fixing screw intended for larger bodied cameras, instead of the 1/4 UNC as found on the majority of camera's.
It arrived within a couple of days & was immediately fitted to the head to make sure I hadn't made a mistake about its 'universal manfrotto fit'. There it stayed until a couple of weeks later when I took it out on location to do rare steam loco' shoot. With a great location sorted along the track-side, I intended to set up the camera to shoot remotely via an intervalometer, but when I came to attach it to my Canon I found that the small 'Locator' it had projecting from its surface to the side of the mounting screw didn't actually locate anywhere on the underside of my camera & therefore prevented the camera attachment.
For the next 15 minutes, I desperately struggled to remove this 'Locator' with everything from car keys to sharp stones & curses, as I unfortunately hadn't anticipated the need to take any tools along with me on this particular shoot.
Try as I might, I couldn't get it to budge - or even work out its method of attachment, so was eventually forced to shoot the 80 mph loco handheld.
It wasn't till the next day, when armed with a sturdy vice, screwdriver, & hammer was I able to remove the little blighter!

~For anyone else wanting to remove the locator, Ive since found out you need to squeeze its 2 halves together with pliers whilst pushing it out from the underside of the mount ~
Come on Manfrotto, get your act together & please consider stupid people when designing your products !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Item - A must have. 20 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
I ordered two of these plates from Amazon, one for my Leica film camera and another for a friend. I already have one of these quick plates plates attached to my Canon DSLR. They are excellent quality and easy to attach. A very useful bit of kit for all that want to use a tripod. As usual Amazon dispatched the item with their usual efficiency. I would recommend this product. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant and rigid 17 Feb 2012
This is an excellent design, providing a solid grip with both the camera body and the tripod so that nothing will budge.

I leave a plate fitted to each camera, facilitating rapid setup without having to fiddle about with screwthreads.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal 23 Dec 2010
By Ray
Manfrotto is a well known professional photographer accessory maker and their prices reflect the quality of their products. There are many immitations on the market, especially for things like this seemingly simple quick release plate, but having compared this genuine spare with a clone one, I have reservations with the clones even though they are cheaper.

The reason why this genuine plate is better is because of simple attention to detail that the clones have missed. The wire handle part on the underside of the plate that lets you tighten up the screw on this genuine plate doesn't flop about and therefore won't get in the way during mounting and unmounting. The clone plate on the other hand, have a wire handle that flops about and gets in the way when you try to mount the plate onto the tripod head.

I had the luck to find a broken (but usable) Manfrotto tripod in a charity shop. I bought it, knowing that the quick release plate - which was missing - could be replaced.

The QR plate:
At first glance this seems expensive for what it it is, a simple metal plate with a locking handle on the bottom as shown in the pictures.

I decided to go for a genuine Manfrotto item rather than a cheaper clone as I wanted the best quality I could; after all, you don't want the item to fail when supporting your precious camera!

Unlike a previous reviewer I was able to easily remove the video pin and keep it in the large plastic bag that contained the plate and instructions. This is simply the luck of the draw. When I purchased another Manfrotto tripod recently I had the same problem with that particular QR plate!

I have used the Calumet shops in London and would recommend them to one and all and so felt confident in buying this item from them.

What I did not expect was the speed of the service. I placed the order on a Friday evening and the plate arrived just after 9am on the following Monday - and by FedEx too - well ahead of the estimated delivery time!

The plate was well packed too, in the afore-mentioned plastic bag, cushioned with additional packaging in a cardboard box and finally in a plastic FedEx bag.

Nothing was going to escape from that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent item with unexpected bonus 21 July 2012
Having obtained one of these with my Manfrotto ball head, I subsequently bought a ring mount for a long lens to avoid the droop issue and wanted another QR plate for that to allow me to switch lenses quickly. Since the ball head has a 3/8" fitting and my Kennett Benbo tripod has both 1/4" and 3/8" fittings but my Benbo monopod only has a 1/4" one, I had also ordered (from an eBay shop) a Gitzo adaptor to enable me to fit the 3/8" head on the 1/4" monopod. However, when I opened the Manfrotto QR plate bag, it turned out contain an almost identical part that allows anything with a 3/8" hole to fit on a 1/4" screw. Normally free stuff is good but it would have been nice to know that the QR plate came with this before I ordered one separately; as none of the reviews mention it, this may be a recent addition. Still, a spare is always handy if you're as prone to losing things as I am.

The QR plate, like the one that came with the ball head, is solid and well made and does the job admirably, as expected.
