Novoflex QPL-VERTIKAL Overview

The Novoflex QPL-Vertikal L-Shaped Quick Release Plate makes it easy to change the camera's orientation from landscape to portrait. It fits on the Q=Base quick release adapter, as well as on any Arca-type compatible quick release assembly. The plate also works with a power booster or vertical grip attached to the camera.

The Novoflex Arca-type quick release plates are thinner by the slimmest of margins than Arca-Swiss quick release plates. They are not recommended for use in the Arca-Swiss Flip-Lock quick release clamp.

Finely machined for Arca-type compatible quick release clamps
Uses the special safety pin of the Q=Base to prevent the camera or other attached gear from accidentally slipping out from the quick-release

Good Idea. Bad execution.

Great! a bracket that fits my Giotto 1301-658 quick release plate. Well, not so good because 1. You can't slide the plate in because you hit the safety lock of the plate. So I will have to take my dremel and cut it off. 2. There is not anti skid and the camera rotates no matter how hard you tighten the screw when in vertical. I will have to go to a music store and have them put cork (saxophones). 3. When you tighten the screw really hard to prevent the camera from dropping (in vertical), the rubber washer crumbles. Also, that screw could be bigger (diameter, depth for large coin) and can be lost too easily. So, it is still better than nothing if you can spend a bit more time and $$ on it.

A better option than a dedicated bracket

I use this bracket with a Canon 1Ds Mark III, 1Ds Mark II, and soon a 5D Mark II. I own a dedicated RRS L bracket for the 1DsII which is great, except that it does not fit the 1DsIII! Since camera models now change so frequently, for my needs I cannot forsee wasting money on dedicated brackets for each new model, and carrying around more than one while traveling. The drawback of not having a dedicated bracket is that access to the accessory ports on the side of the camera is restricted.

Too disappointed

I bought this before the giottos *but it fails me. The camera cannot sit tight enough for vertical shoot. Quality is not up to par too. They need to improve their paint quality on this bracket.

Works well but...

I've had this bracket for about two years and while it's durable it has one major flaw for a photographer. The screw that holds the camera to the plate is easily lost. This is really a poor design and if the screw slides down the slot to the end closest to the corner of the bracket it falls out and well you know what happens; next time you go to use your bracket there is no way to attach it to your camera. Now I have a $ tent peg.
