I bought this camera plate with the intention to mount it to a custom built tripod with suction cup feet that can be attached to any flat surface such as a car door, window, table or even upside down. The fact that is has multiple mounting screws, with a large number of combinations, allows for easy installation to any of your existing hardware. It includes two different threaded mounting screws that will fit most small to medium camera's and video camera's. I am very pleased with the material that it is constructed form, very rugged but still quite light.

I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a quick release mounting plate.

The quick release plate is a great idea, but it depends on what you are going to use it for.

I bought this to use with the Glidecam HD2000 but there are several problems you have to overcome to make it work.

Firstly the glidecam plate that the base of this attaches to, does not have holes big enough or spaced probably apart to attach enough screws to hold the plate securely in place. To get around this you need to make one of the holes on the glidecam plate bigger.

Secondly when you put the base plate on the bottom of a camera (such as my GH4 or Blackmagic Pocket) the plates lock to keep the camera in placce often hits the bottom of the camera, making it impossobly to lock the camera on to the release plate. There are a couple of options to work aorund that, such as taking the spring out of the lock.

If you are happy to make work arounds for these issues, the plate is solidly constructed and does sit nicely on my glidecam now.

        Honestly, the more of these available the better, having multiple of these has made transitioning from glidecam, to tripod to shoulder rig, seemless and effortless. Best asset to have and I bought 3.

                      Definitely worth it if you're already heavily invested in the manfrotto 501PL QR plates.
