The rapid connect works perfectly on my monopod and the quick release plate is compatable with my other Manfrotto heads.

Attaches quickly and easily to both camera & tripod.

It seemed like such a simple plan - add a quick release plate to my venerable Tiltall tripod's 2 & 7/8th inch diameter camera mounting surface. Unfortunately,the base of the Manfrotto's quick release lever extends approximately 1/8th of an inch downward about 1 & 1/8th inches from the center of the bottom plate. This makes it impossible for the bottom plate to lay flat against my tripod's mounting surface.

The ad copy's assurance that this device allows you to "Add a quick release system to any tripod or monopod" turns out not to be true.

That said, it's a well made little gizmo and looks like would make the perfect addition to a different (perhaps, newer) tripod.

Just wanted to provide a compatibility warning to users considering purchasing this QR Plate for their Glidecams. The base of the QR Plate is not flat, so it will not lay flat against the Glidecam's camera base. If you look at the customer uploaded pictures carefully, you can see that the safety latch extends below the base of the plate.

But it works great on a regular tripod and Manfrotto's products are meant to last a life time.

This is a well manufactured little piece, with solid construction and time-tested design. Now I know why people pay so much for Manfrotto products.

It comes with 2 pieces, the camera plate mounts to the camera and the base mounts to the tripod. The two pieces can attach with ease, as the camera plate will push a little brass button that flips the lock lever to the locking position automatically. The little click sound and the flip of the lever provide an easy confirmation for me. To prevent accidental unlocking of the main lock lever, there's a secondary safety lever below it that can also be flipped. It's small and is hidden behind the main lock lever, so it won't get caught in the photographer's jacket/camera strap, etc. All the safety is necessary to avoid crashing the valueable camera and lens down to the floor.

The camera plate grabs on to the bottom of my camera very well. It doesn't twist even when I mounted a very heavy lens and had the camera in portrait orientation.

Unlike tripod heads that need a stringent weight specification, this is pretty much a one-size fit all. It feels safe when I had a semi-pro DSLR, a 3lbs lens and a flash mounted on it.

I have a couple of tripods and a mono-pod, none of which came with a quick release mechanism. So the perfect add on would be this Manfrotto RC2, since it can be shared. It allows me to use the tripod more often, since mounting/unmounting isn't a hassle anymore.

Although a tad on the pricey side, this is definitely worth the investment. Attaches quickly and easily to both camera & tripod. Connects with positive feel and the safety pin provides that added bit of confidence when mounting expensive hardware. Some reviewers have experienced difficulty with the locking lever and/or safety latch clearance on the tripod mounting deck. To avoid the problem, your tripod deck can measure NO MORE than 1 1/8 inches from the center of the mounting screw to the edge of the deck.

Very well made. I have used it several times now and have had no problems. Makes it so much easier to use the tripod. I have used it with a D80 with a Tamron 18-270 zoom lens attached and it handled it easily. Highly recommend this produt to others

I own several Manfrotto and Gitzo heads and wanted to use the same QR plates on all my gear. So I was delighted when I read Manfrotto's claim that the 323 RC2 allows you to "add a quick release system to any tripod." So I ordered a 323 RC2 from Amazon and eagerly awaited its appearance on my doorstep.

The best mounting solution--if possible with your head--is to remove the head's disk/platform and mount the 332 RC2 directly on the ball stem. The underside of the 323 RC2 is flat, so ball stems with a single key or boss will be too wobbly. Double boss stems should be pretty solid. I installed the 332 RC2 on a Gitzo G1177M Magnesium 1 Series Ball Head with a simple flat topped stem, so it has 100% contact with the bottom of the 323 RC2. The disk on top of the head (where you mount the camera) is easily removed (a single nut) and the 332 RC2 can be screwed onto the 3/8 inch stud sticking out of the ball stem. I finished the job with a wee dab of Loctite Blue 242 on the stud to lock the threads. The result was a beautiful Italian-French hybrid, i.e., a Gitfrotto head. It looks handsome--like original equipment--and works like a dream. My old friend, G1177M, is now much more convenient to use.

The 332 RC2 is well constructed with excellent fit and finish. It's also fast to use: press in the plate and the spring loaded lock snaps shut. However the small 200PL-14 plates used in the 323 RC2 are best suited for light to medium sized load, e.g., your typical DSLR and telezoom. The new neoprene backed 200PL-14 plates are more grippy and less prone to twist than the old cork backed plates from the 1990s. For example my EOS 5D MKII and EF 70-200 4L IS USM were rock steady and didn't twist when flipped for portrait orientation.

Check the customer images above for my picture of the 332 RC2 mounted directly on the ball stem of the Gitzo G1177M.
