Are you still screwing your cameras or lenses directly onto a ¼” or ⅜” stud on the tripod head? For speed and simplicity, you need Quick release plates for mounting and un-mounting your camera and lens set.
What is a Quick Release (QR) System? Let us understand the Quick Release system first. The QR system has two parts -- a clamp and a plate. The clamp stays on your tripod head while the Tripod quick release plate stay on your camera or lens all the time. So, if you already have a tripod head with a clamp, all you need is a quick release plate. These Quick release plates attach to your lens or camera using standard photography screws. Ideally, you will need dedicated Camera mounting plate on each of your camera body and Quick release lens plate to be attached to lens collar foot.
Quick release system comes in different formats -- Arca Swiss technology and the Manfrotto technology. Arca Swiss is the most commonly accepted Tripod quick release plate and clamp system. In fact, recognizing this widespread acceptance, Manfrotto also announced a 'Top Lock' quick release system for its tripod heads that's compatible with standard Arca Swiss-type plates.
Note: The entire range of DSLR quick release plates available on Nature Lounge is Arca Swiss compatible.
