SolidSeems solid overall, good strong connection between the two plates.The first one I received seems to have been defective, the lever was extremely stiff the first time I used it and after attaching/detaching the two plates a few times testing it out the spring on the head of the nut on the base plat was getting pushed up somehow. Did an exchange and the 2nd unit doesn't seem to have the same problem so far.4Highly recommended. Light weight, strong, secure quick release head. Requires a little getting used to the the release lever, but I found no problem doing so. Mine is mounted atop a Monfrotto MM290A4US mono-pod. On a recent bus tour of the American Southwest, I found I could mount my D300 to the mono pod sticking out of my camera backpack, while my backpack sat on the floor between my knees. This gave me a secure place to keep my camera during the ride, and still allowed quick access when needed. I intend to buy another for my tripod, as well as a spare plate for a third camera. Highly recommended. 5great for quick battery changesI bought this for my Panasonic GH5. Since I mount the camera on an audio field recorder, the recorder blocks the battery door, and I could not change the batteries easily, which I need to do several times on every shoot. Now the quick release eliminates the issue - battery changes went from 5 minutes to 1 minute - a big deal when the talent and client are waiting.5Peace of Mind.On the expensive side if you need a few of them but definitely worth the peace of mind... I have 3... Tripod, Gimbal (Ronin S) and my slider... I know they sell top plates individually but with only one camera buying the locking mechanism separately would ve been ideal!5One Tough Cookie!!This plate is built like a tank. It seemed a bit pricey at first, but trust me it's worth it. You can attach this to your Ronin-M plate, as well as your camera cage to connect to your tripod to lock off static shots as well. It's a good buy!5I own 5 sets of these! I have 1 set of these per camera. Interchange all your gear with all your tripods, sliders,steady cams with these quick releases to make life so much easier. I do spend a lot if time at the beach and sand does get caught up in the locking mechanism so watch out for that. Otherwise these are heavy duty and work unbelievably well! 5Not as Small as it SeemsSo, after getting the RC2, I wanted something smaller (really more flat) that could mount easily on my Panosaurus panoramic head. I saw the RC4 and thought that would do the trick. From the pictures (I only looked at those on Amazon) it seemed to have similar dimensions as the RC2, but was low-profile with the locking mechanism in-line with the unit.But, this thing is huge compared to the RC2. Sure, its flat, low-profile, and a bit shorter than the RC2, but it is just about twice as wide and twice as long.Despite its size though, so far it seems to be working well. I've no problems with the mechanism. You push in the "button," or "catch" and pull back the lever, while keeping a good grip on your precious hardware, to release the plate. I must admit, my hands are not small and pretty strong.Build quality is also excellent. It is a solid product and holds my Pentax K-x (with either 18-55mm or 50-300mm kit lenses attached) pretty well.So, right now, I'm using the RC2s to connect my Ball head and Pano head to the tripod and the RC4s to connect the camera to the heads. I may, when I save some cash, switch entirely to RC4.It's a five-star product in my book even though it did not meet my expectations on size (that's all my fault for not doing enough research).When I get an oppotunity I'll take some pics of the two plates and post them.5Solid, secure and easy to use with different equipmentIt's hard to tell form the product view, but this clamp is essentially two pieces - one base station and one clamp. The clamp clamps into the base station. You can buy the base station separately. By having multiple base stations I can quickly move the camera to wherever I need it. For example, I ended up putting the master plate on the GH5, and then a few of the base plates on my tripod, my slider, my monopod, my cage and on a gorilla pod. This easy interchangeability and wide application makes it easy for me to get things done a bit faster as I am more often than not a one man crew.In terms of relaibility, I don't ever feel the camera is in danger of coming loose. There is a reassuring clicking sound when the camera is in place properly and the clamp trigger snaps back, giving you a tactile and visual indicator that all is well. If you find that the clamp doesn't work, it probably means you moved it into the locked position without putting your clamp in first.I like this clamp quite a bit and I feel that it's well worth the money.5Switch platforms without headache!A DSLR filmmaker buddy of mine turned me on to these things and now I too swear by them.The way we use them is this. Put one of the little 410 PL plates on the bottom of your camera, then put the 394 Rapid Connect on your shoulder rig, your glide cam, your tripod and anything else that you might want to mount your camera to. You might have to spend a little more to get all those mounts, but once you do -- heaven! It makes it so easy to switch from one application to the next. No more unscrewing a tripod plate and then screwing the camera to a shoulder rig or steadicam, just click it and go!As for the security of the mount itself -- you could probably hang from the ceiling by it! The mount makes a very secure click and then you push the lever forward a little and it's locked in tight. Want to release it? Press the button it, pull the lever back thoroughly and then lift it over and out.5BEST camera mounting system for DSLR cameras!SOLID, well-designed, we ll-built and works awesome for the DSLR sized camera. I did some extensive research to find the most efficient way to confidently mount my Panasonic GH5 camera to my tripods, gimbal, and slider head. This is IT. I purchased and retuned two Arca Swiss type systems that were absolutely terrible and then I found this awesome Manfrotto 394 RC4 system. Literally, I felt like my camera could have easily fallen the ground with an Arca Swiss designed system but the Manfrotto 394 RC4 allows you to mount your camera quickly and with COMPLETE confidence. I bought 3 of these systems and have been using them for about two months. After about 15 shoots I am extremely happy I finally found a good mounting system. Every time I mount my cameras I am so happy I finally found a system I can be confident and efficient with. The system is so strong it may even work for some larger camcorder sized cameras. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!5Works on my Glidecam HD 2000This is a review for anyone interested in using this quick release plate with a Glidecam. When I initially purchased it for my Glidecam HD 2000, I was worried that the base of this adapter may not properly attach to the Glidecam plate. But it fits beautifully.I have uploaded some pics showing the 394 RC4 adapter plate on a Glidecam along with a Canon 5D.Attaching the camera to the adapter is a breeze and it snaps in very easily. But removing it is not smooth, and it requires that you apply a fair amount of pressure on the safety latch before you can turn it. Not a big issue, since this means there is no risk of me accidentally moving the safety latch.Also, if you are using a 5D Mark II, you WILL NOT need to remove the plate that attaches to the camera to remove the battery.4I have the answer to people unable to pull the lever. Also, great QR for glidecams.First off this is a solid piece that will hold my 5d Mark III securely with no wiggle. It is also a perfect quick release for glidecams as well as the lever is unobtrusive.Here is how the lever works:You first pull the lever back towards you before pressing in the chrome button. The lever will move about 1/2" to an 1". After that first little movement continue to pull back towards you, NOW press in the chrome button at the end of the lever to fully release the plate.Trying to push the button at the beginning somehow makes it stick (which I was trying to do at first) and is stressful that you might think it doesn't work or is unreliable for fast exchange of gear. But now it works flawlessly following those steps of course.. =)5
