Summary: My class was given two older Velbon tripods that were in perfect condition except that one of them didn't have a Quick Release Plate. As any videographer knows, a tripod is useless without a Quick Release Plate since there isn't anything to attach the camera to. Ordering from B & H was a breeze and the plate arrived in a couple of days here in eastern Tennessee.
Summary: Having one of these in your kitbag is very handy for those occasions when you decide to mount your cam on the tripod, then discover your quick-release plate is still attached to your other cam!!
