Summary: I use this plate for all my cameras and large lenses. I use them because I do a lot of panoramic images using Bogen's Panoramic Head Equipment. These plates combined with Bogen quick release plates have a very good safety latch. Arca Swiss seems to get all the attention and is perhaps, and I mean perhaps, is slightly more refined but at a higher cost. Bogen has done a great job with this system. In fact I prefer this system to Arca Swiss because of its release qualities.
Summary: Good product generally. THe only simple problem which is sorta riddle is that the head plate is bigger than the other Manfrotto head, which might give a little pain to change the plate to snap in different rigs. Otherwise, the monopod and the base are very good, giving very smooth movements. Still have to learn to get used to it though. Recommended for event shooters.
Summary: Super schnelle Lieferung, gut verpackt. Staiv wird nicht wie vorgesehen für eine Videokamera, sondern für eine Nikon D700 mit Objetiv gebraucht und entspricht voll meinen Ansprüchen und Erwartungen. Ebenfalls habe ich einen Kugelkopf 322RC2 von Mafrotto befestigt. Sitz, passt alles perfekt.
