PM501 Manfrotto-Type Quick Release Plate with Arca-Type Clamp
Fantastic must-have plate if you shoot mirrorless or DSLR video and want Arca Swiss! This plate fixes SO many issues with using a standard LONG plate on the Manfrotto video heads. PERFECT!
Exceptional customer support that its eager to resolve any issues. The PM501 is a god saviour as Im an Arca Swiss user myself. Very good designed plate, build with exceptional quality.
Fits perfectly in a Manfrotto 502 head. I much prefer using Arca Swiss QR plates on DSLR style cameras and this is a much cleaner solution than jury rigging an Arca clamp onto a Manfrotto plate. Highly recommended.
This is a perfect replacement and addition of arca-swiss plate for my older Manfrotto video head- and it even works on the newer 608 Nitrotech that uses the long plate - but I will be getting the long version (PM501L) for that head. All edges are beveled and smooth- solid metal machining. Works perfectly and saves a lot of time.
I previously used a few different plates with my 502 fluid head, depending on whether I was using a DSLR or a Camcorder, but now I use only the PMG plate. It's easier to keep an arca-type plate on a camcorder.
