SmallRig Drop Over Quick Release Base for Manfrotto 501PL Plates

I've preached about Drop-In style Video Heads in the past, but what about Quick Release Baseplates? There's a couple of reasons why you may prefer this Smallrig Drop Over Quick Release Base for Manfrotto 501PL Plates instead of traditional slide in plates.

Close to $50 for the SmallRig QR Base alone, it certainly is not cheap. But you can see that using a drop-in style system does solve a lot of frustrations involved with slide-in plates when working with certain setups.

    wish they could offer a shorter version of the plate (to use Bmpcc with bigger lens without cage).
    They had it under "Co-design progress" but can't see it there anymore... :/

    If the if the anti-twist "stand-offs" block the monitor at the rear, try them at the front of the camera. As long as the lens mount isn't too low on the body of your camera, that can be a great option.
