Great build quality but has a big problem.
on 5 March 2014
When you take this out of the packaging you will be surprised at how sturdy and strong the mounting plate is. I must say it feels very expensive and well-built. It can take a beating.
HOWEVER, i encountered a very big problem, because the actual mounting plate is thick, you can't use normal length 1/4" screws, as they're too short. I tried using a longer screw and added some washers but the quick release plate i mounted on top is not attached properly, (it moves about unless you jam pieces of paper between the camera and baseplate which still doesn't work nicely.)
Maybe it's just me or somebody can link me to some 1/4" screws that work with this plate. Very good build quality, but doesn;t function properly, I would not recommend this product until I find a way around this problem.
It would've been nice if the mounting plate would've come with a long camera screw that would eradicate the problems I ecountered.
