Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it's meant to It's a nice metal baseplate and it fits my tripod, that's about it. Hard to find any complaints because it is what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits & does the job. Well, it's a camera plate. It fits the used tripod I bought cheaply elsewhere. So that's really all that matters. Now I can use that tripod! Glad I could find the plate I needed here. Thanks Videoguys!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid product Good product but for using with a 7D camera body needed to remove the aligning pin but easy to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy I bought this additional quick release plate so that I could quickly switch between shooting with my camcorder and DSLR without changing the plate over.

As you would expect, the plate has the same Miller build quality as the original.

The only difficulty, really, is that the alignment pin next to the 1/4" screw thread is part of the same assembly the screw goes through. This means that for mounting a DSLR (which doesn't have an alignment hole), you need to remove that assembly and just poke the 1/4" screw through the slot. It's not really designed for this, and little bit fiddly and precarious until you get it screwed in (after which it seems fine).

Quick-release plates for some other systems I've seen feature an alignment pin that can be screwed in or out as required.
