I use this on my glidecam 2000 so I don't have to keep re-balancing it, works perfect. My manfrotto plates fit perfectly, save at least 20 bucks by getting this.

This quick release is a great alternative to a Monfrotto quick release because the base plates are interchangeable. I also like the accessory screws on the side because you can mount different accessories. One thing I don't like is that the screw that tightens on the plate has a knob that hits the base of most cameras making it difficult to tighten. Although it does ratchet and will work, it is still annoying.

It fit my Manfrotto 501 Quick Release Plates perfectly.

Was not expecting it to come with a plate, but it does. Pretty awesome.

If I could change one thing on it, I would make the dial smaller. It extends too far, and hits both the top of the camera, and the bottom mount you place it on.

It "ratchets" as someone else said, so you can get around it, however, I see no reason to have a dial that large. Just make it smaller and all is well.

Despite this shortcoming, I still give it a 5-star b/c it is priced more fairly than the Manfrotto version.

I bought this for my Opeteka stabilizer and it fits great. The mount accepts the Manfrotto 501 video plates. If you compare the Calumet plate and the Manfotto, they are 99% the SAME.

The only different is in the base itself. The red "release" button on the Calumet is red painted WOOD. I was a little surprised to see that. I thought plastic would be a cheaper option as that is what my Manfrotto video head has. I'm hoping it doesn't wear out over time, but for the cost savings, it's worth the substitution still.

Good quality otherwise!
