Quick-release plates are small, universal mounting plates that make mounting easy. This is because lenses that are fitted with quick-release systems are easy to attach and release from tripods within seconds, thereby preventing slippage and speeding up setup and take-down. Essentially, this camera support accessory makes your camera portable.
Quick-release systems can be used with many different lenses and include a clamp (which mounts to the top of the tripod head) and a plate (which attaches to the bottom of your camera). Simply attach your camera to the tripod by loosening the screw on the clamp, inserting and then tightening the plate. To release, do the reverse.
We stock lens plates, body plates and replacement feet manufactured by notable brands such as Benro, Wimberley, Kirk and Manfrotto.
