Quick Release Plate is constructed of die-cast aluminum, strong enough
to support SLR or DSLR cameras with a medium lens, and light medium
format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360°
panoramic rotation, ±90° tilt movement, plus a friction control for
precise positioning. Cameras are attached to the ball head with the

has 3/8'' female threads. Additionally, the Quick Release has a safety
system to prevent an accidental detaching from the head.

screw and is removable.
