I have carried a ZipShot tripod while hiking for years and it's good for summit shots and self shots when solo, but it's required for low light situations and getting that "flowing" water look. While the ZipShot sets up almost instantly, it takes much more time to attach the camera and it's a hassle, discouraging use. There is no shortage of quick-release tripod accessories but they are all HEAVY, because big DLSR stability is the primary market for tripod gear. This accessory is perfect for my compact Panasonic LX7, and lets me get the shots I want quickly without lagging too far behind my hiking partners.

This device essentially holds your camera in place with a plastic snap-on mechanism. I can see how this could work well for a small, lightweight point-and shoot camera. However, I do not have enough confidence in strength or sturdiness this mechanism to use it to mount my Canon bridge Camera or a DSLR. The build in screw on the tripod provides a much stronger mounting point.

Got this sucker to attach a camera to my motorcycle. It's survived a summer of 60+ mph winds and I believe it'll last years. Definitely recommended.

This has worked well for mounting my compact camera on a lightweight tripod. It seems fairly sturdy considering the low price.

I purchased the Tamrac ZipShot Tripod Quick-Release Accessory Kit for my Tamrac TR406 ZipShot Compact Ultra-Light Instant Tripod and I couldn't be happier. One of my few complaints about the Tamrac TR406 ZipShot Compact Ultra-Light Instant Tripod is that to attach your camera to it you must screw it onto mount. The Tamrac ZipShot Tripod Quick-Release Accessory Kit solves that by making it quick and easy to attach and detach your camera from the tripod.

This kit includes one base piece that attaches to the tripod and two camera mounts (one for Point-and-Shoot, one for DSLRs). You attach the base simply by spinning it onto the screw located on the tripod, the camera mounts attach similarly but you'll want to use a coin to tighten up the connection. After that you just have to slide your camera onto the tripod, to release the camera just squeeze the sides of the base and slide the camera back out.

Some reviews have been critical of this accessory kit for not being compatible with their tripod. That's because it is not intended for conventional tripods but only for the Tamrac TR406 ZipShot Compact Ultra-Light Instant Tripod and it's "little brother" the Tamrac TR404 ZipShot® Mini Tripod - Black. If you use this kit with the correct tripods you won't have any issues.

I purchased a Tamrac Zipshot Quick-Release kit to allow easy removal of the camera from a Davis & Sanford Quick Connect tripod.

The ball head attachment weighs 0.4 oz, the small camera attachment weighs 0.2 oz, the large camera attachment weighs 0.4 oz, and the cell phone attachment weighs 0.9 oz. The quick release mechanism does quite well with my Samsung WB250F camera; I do wish that you could slide the camera on/off from either direction, but that is not a big thing for me. The attachment is plastic which can be subject to breakage if excessive pressure is placed on the disconnect arms.

Even though I don’t use the cell phone adapter I did attempt to ‘try’ it out, but neither my Galaxy 2 nor Galaxy 4 phone would fit the holder. The maximum cell phone width that it would accommodate is 2.25”, which seems fairly small by today’s standards; the maximum length it would hold is more than adequate.

I have a Nikon DSLR that weighs (with the small zoom lens) 2.73 pounds which I attached to the tripod with the large camera attachment. The system appeared somewhat unstable with that much weight on top.

Overall, for my purposes, the quick release does its job. If you have a small, lightweight camera then you may find that it will work well for you, too.

Perfect fit! makes tripod complete and easy for quick use. Bonus is that it has two fittings for both a larger and smaller camera.
