MOUNTING: The DP-25 mounts by turning a D-ring or or coin in a slot on top of the screw. A great idea but this D-ring handle was loose and tangled downwards, snagging on the clamp during mounting. Not a big deal to push out of the way but I'm picky and immediately tossed the D-ring and installed a Sunwayfoto stainless steel 1/4" screw with hex head and all was well.
This plate has a single centered mounting slot--thus no lateral adjustment--and may cover the battery door of small cameras if the tripod socket and door are adjacent to one another. If such is the case for you, buy the SUNWAYFOTO 26mm QR Plate DP-26 DP26 Arca Compatible Sunway instead. Same sized plate but the DP-26 has three mounting slots, allowing varied positioning and easy clearance of an adjacent battery door.
BUILD: The workmanship is excellent with well applied finish, tight fitting dovetails (at least in my clamps) and smoothly machined contours. It's a little thicker than the Sunwayfoto DP-26 plate, sticking out 10.4mm from the bottom of the camera. I prefer the thicker plates as they give me a little more to hang on to and are easier to mount by feel. The D-ring is the only little "pimple" and was quickly fixed as detailed above.
I tried the P-25 on a Canon SL1, Canon S90, Olympus E-P3, Canon Speedlite 430EX and Tascam DR-100 audio recorder. It worked fine on all these products but covered the battery door on the S90 and DR100. It slid or top loaded easily into my clamps and locked down with a quick twist. The dovetail is 38.5mm and works perfectly in my screw clamps from RRS, Hejnar, Kirk, Sunwayfoto and Desmond. There was no twisting on the S90 or E-P3 so the small neoprene anti-twist pads work well for light loads.
I own three other Desmond products and their quality has been consistently excellent across the board. Consider that similar sized plates normally sell for $20 to $30. So for under $10 this little plate is a bargain.
08/08/2014 UPDATE: I bought a second DP-25 and noticed the D-ring screw has been improved: the D-ring is stiffer and doesn't droop and the slot fits a USA quarter perfectly.
This little plate is really nice! I like the fold out tightening ring as well the not too small not not very big size of the plate. I have a lot of smaller accessories that I need to have plates on so I don't have to constantly switch back and forth, and this little gem is just right for the medium to small items. By that i mean from something like a Sony RX100 on down in size. For me this is just right for the RX as well as iPhone holders, flash units, GoPro's and anything else you can think of in that size range. You won't regret these little plates!
It's almost exactly the right size for a Canon EOS M. It's just slightly too wide for the battery door to open all of the way, but it doesn't impede removal of the battery enough to matter.
If you're attaching large EF/EF-S lenses on the front of your EOS M, be aware that this plate is only prevented from rotating by the friction of the two rubber pads. It doesn't have any sort of ridge, so you'll probably want to consider attaching a video-plate to the tripod foot on your EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter in that case.
If you are a pro - you may want to spend twice to four times the cost of these plates - but for me, as a serious amateur - they work just fine.
The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars are the following two nits:
1. The slot on the d-ring is too small to insert a quarter (or penny). Sometimes the extra torque you get from pocket change helps to tighten or loosen the plate.
2. It's really small which makes it a bit more fidgety to get it on an arca style clamp, and it also means that you may need to mount it at right angles to what you'd normally do in order to get the most surface contact with the camera.
