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.

Exactly what I needed! I use a Panasonic FZ200 bridge camera...so smaller than a lot of DSLRs, but much larger than most point-and-shoot varieties. I use a shoulder sling and was looking for a way to easily detach it without having to always take out the tripod mount screw...this works perfectly. It works so well, in fact, I'm buying another set so I can keep a second female mount on my Gorilla Pod and not have to worry about that screw either. It feels very durable...the GOOD kind of plastic that's out there!

It takes a bit of work to place the snap onto the camera.
Although the snap slides into the quick-release easily, it doesn't sit into the lock position smoothly. There is no audible "click" giving a false sense that it has locked into place. My camera fell out one time and fortunately I was able to catch it; otherwise, it would have been disastrous.

The last thing I want to worry about when attaching my camera to a tri-pod is accidentally dropping it while struggling with the screw threads. Even if all I get is a strong jerk on my neck or wrist - that's a scary feeling with expensive camera gear.

Just recently I watched a friend struggle for nearly a full minute trying to attach her camera to a tri-pod. (Yes, I offered to help. And yes, I told her about this accessory.) That experience hammered home my gratitude for having this on my setup for set ups so rapid my friends joke about speed records for group photos.

The device seems sturdy enough for me to trust it with my gear, even when in the deep forests and rocky terrain or Montana with a good wind. Note that key elements of the accessory are metal. With normal usage I don't see the device breaking. Both release levers have to be pressed to remove the camera - the camera will not fall off if through some freak of nature one lever were press. The slide on is strong, and it takes a good strong squeeze to release.

I also like that I can adjust the orientation for attach and release to what suits me. I happen to like a right to left slide to lock on, and a left to right slide to release. You literally have 360-degrees to choose from.

Truly a quality accessory and a very reasonable price point.

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.
