The Oben QR-20 Quick Release Plate is a camera plate that fits the Arca Swiss-style quick-release element of Oben's BB-1, BB-1T, BC-1 & BC-1T ball head models. The plate features a 1/4"-20 screw with a ring on the underside that allows you to attach it to a DSLR, point & shoot, or video camera without using tools. For camera stability, the top of the plate features a rubberized surface. Two studs on the bottom of the plate help prevent the camera & plate from sliding all the way forward or backward out of the ball head, in case the head's clamp is inadvertently left loose.
The plate is 2.34" (59.4 mm) long, and fits any standard Arca-type quick release mechanism.
This is a good choice for adapting a lens for use with an Arca-Swiss type tripod head. It is marginal on a camera as it it not going to hold if the camera is oriented vertically.
The only quibble I have with the product is that the mechanism (the half loop) to screw the plate to your camera bends out of shape with use for reasons which escape me, and I can't easily open it up with my thumbnail. But you can use a coin in a pinch which works fine as a makeshift screwdriver. But otherwise it works as advertised.
As good as my plate that I received with my Induro ball head. Only different here is the price which is much better than the factory replacement. Plus, this version come with a screw with a twist handle. On the induro factory version I have to use an allen wrench to get screwed in tightly.
GOOD BUT CAPTURE SCREWS WERE TOO LONG AND WHEY WOULDNT UNSCREW...I HAD TO FILE THEM DOWN TO MAKE FIT.
Perfect fir for my oben tripod, no issues at all, fits and holds my canon perfectly.
That's the way we do it!!!
The locking screw is so small that it is hard to get it tight enough where it will not move when attached to the camera and/or lens. Very disappointed.
Needed an additional QR plate for my Oben ball head. Works fine, able to support canon 5dmk3 with sigma 70-200 2.8 lens without issue.
It has a solid attachment . Easy to attach to the tripod .
