The NP-50 hybrid quick release plate features a modular anti-twist flange, which makes it more versatile than a standard camera or lens plate.
When lined up against one of the edges of the camera or lens, an anti-twist flange prevents the plate from being able to twist or unscrew unintentionally. This feature is designed more for lenses with a short foot profile like 70-200/100-400mm's, but it can also be used on a camera body.
The optimal attachment solution for a camera body is an L-bracket, but what makes this plate great is that it can be used as a standard camera plate (anti-twist flange lowered) or as a short lens plate for 70-200/100-400mm class lenses.
If you're just starting out and you're not 100% sure what to purchase, the best option is to buy a versatile and affordable product like this before committing to L-brackets and more specialised plates.
Machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminium, hollowed out to reduce weight and finished in a black anodised coating to protect from bumps and scratches. The top features ribbed rubber pads to assist with grip on the camera body/lens foot.
