Quick release systems are specially designed for photographers or videographers wanting to switch between their gear with ease, without having to screw their equipment onto various tripods each time a new adventure comes to light.
Arca style quick release lens plates come in two types, PU and PL, in this category specifically PL plates are shown. They include 1/4" mounting screws that connect directly to your camera or lens. The plates have an anti-slip safety mechanism built underneath, to prevent your plate from accidently sliding out after loosening the connector. PL Arca swiss style lens plates have ‘hooks’ at the back of the plates to ensure the lens stays in the position, without sliding out of place. Therefore, these plates are perfectly suited for lenses due to their functional form, preventing them from twisting on the lens foot.
