bang for the buck
on 11 August 2018
Earlier I was using the Plastic version of the quick release plate from the same company, bought in 2014. Had 7 of them and all were working well so far, even till today. No reason to upgrade. Paid 700 for one at that time.
Recently got a gimbal, and the plastic one was interfering in the gimbal, the knob was touching the motor. Decided to buy one of these, before purchasing any cheese plate to counterbalance and adjust. And boy, I made the right decision. These came at the same price(699, surprising) and were so well built.
The zhiyun crane 2 gimbal balances a 80D + 24-70 2.8(2.3kg setup with mic, extremely front heavy) perfectly without any issues of motor touching the camera or the base plate. Bought 6 more of these and one had a screw issue. So replaced it.
Flycam/Flyfilms make great equipment at a great price, using their products since 2014.
