The Sima QC is less-than-ideal for my purposes, because:
> You have to remove the "camcorder pin" with a screw driver---no problem, but it will then almost certainly get lost. A better design would be to allow it to retract (on a spring), or fold away.
> You have to attach the "camera plate" to your camera with a very thin (sharp) screw-driver, even a dime is too thick. A better design would have allowed the screw to be tightened with a penny or a dime.
> The camera plate is 1 1/2" square. Attached to my camera, it will not fit in my camera case. Nikon Coolpix S Series Black Leather Horizontal Case for S6000 and S8000.
> The "tripod adapter" piece is relatively enormous, 2 1/2" across---not a huge problem with my camera, but with other small cameras, it could get in the way of looking through the view-finder.
> The lock-lever actually opens a little too far, in which case it actually gets in the way of removing/installing the camera plate.
> If I was using a bigger camera, I would be concerned that the camera screw is offset to the edge of the "camera plate" (the leverage of a heavy camera could easily snap the camera plate in half). The "camera plate" is only a square of plastic---why can't Sima provide a non-camcorder plate (with the screw centered, and no camcorder pin), in addition to the camcorder plate?
I'd love a mini-version, half the size of this one, particularly built into a mini-ball head similar to Professional Mini Ball Head Camera Mount
1. The surface area of the insert that connects to the camera is too small.
2. It's all plastic. Better (and more expensive) mounts such as Manfrotto are metal.
3. There is no additional safety lock pin to prevent accidental release.
4. It's relatively inconvenient. One must use a screw driver or thin coin (a dime works) to tighten the unit to the camera tripod mount.
Unfortunately, it is with the telephoto lenses that tripods are most necessary. So I've coughed up the significant extra money to convert to Manfrotto.

If you plan to use the Sima Quick Connect with a small compact camera, you will probably be very happy with the product. It's certainly a lot cheaper than most of the alternatives.
When I received this from Amazon, it had a guide pin attached to the smaller piece, for use with some cameras, in addition to the screw mount. In my case, that guide pin was an obstacle preventing camera attachment. But it was easy to remove and thereby eliminate the guide pin by simply unscrewing it.
It should be noted that, to attach the smaller piece to the bottom of the camera requires the use of a screw driver or at least a coin to screw it on. The same is true for removing the piece from the bottom of the camera. This requirement can be solved by adding a small screwdriver or even a coin to your camera bag.
In summary, this device seems sturdy and well-built and does exactly what I had hoped it would do.
The QuicKonnect worked so well, I purchased 7 of them so far and picked up 3 more to share to my friends and family for Christmas. I placed the Sima QuicKonnect on all my ball heads, tripods, stabilizers and more.
