Even though I have used this quick release baseplate a handful of times as of writing this review, I am very pleased with it. It works very well with the small Arca quick release plate which came with the SmallRig Quick Release Baseplate Kit for Panasonic Lumix GH5/GH5S 2035. I have found that this quick release baseplate (1817) secures the camera with no movement and it's a lower profile than the 2035 quick release baseplate mentioned above. The only thing which I don't like about it is that I have to attach the tripod quick release plate just off centre on this baseplate, but that is a very minor problem and it actually works out brilliantly as my GH5 ends up sitting in the centre of the tripod when I slide the GH5 far enough to the side. I'm intending on buying another one of these baseplates for my monopod.
The pack includes an Arca baseplate and an Arca quick release plate. It features strong compatibility and is compatible with tripod, dolly and DJI Ronin. In addition, the baseplate comes with a number of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for external mountings. The designer is really great about the details.
Having a gadget like this one, is a priority for every videomaker which uses many support to create and realize his videos. Switching easily from the tripod to the monopod, and again from the monopod to the gimbal, from the gimbal to the slider, is an enormous savings in time.
This will let you not only to save time, but to be ready to shot everythiing you want in few seconds, not needing to unscrew and rescrew every time.
The realization is excellent, all in metal, and is very reliable. I've preferred this to the Manfrotto one, because the plate is smaller and is included in the package.
now I want one that is combined with arca clamp and 15mm rod support like VRA-15 of RRS.
