Sirui Photo and Video Mounting Platforms
The big advantage of using a monopod instead of a tripod, is its ability to let you move quickly from scene to scene. It’s also very beneficial to have a monopod that lets you rapidly change cameras and lenses. To do this requires a mounting platform that uses quick release plates. If you have a monopod that does not have a quick release system, you need a Sirui Photo or Video Mounting platform. These platforms fit on the 3/8″ screw of the photo or video monopod and provide you with a fast, convenient way to quickly and safely attach or detach your camera system.
Sirui MP-20 Quick Release Photo Platform
The Sirui MP-20 is an Arca-compatible Quick Release Photo Platform. The MP-20 has a patented, Sirui-designed dual safety lock mechanism that prevents the camera from accidentally sliding off of the ball head (when the quick release clamp is slightly loosened). This feature is available with Sirui standard and custom quick release plates (sold separately), and offers superior locking performance and reliability. Most Arca-compatible quick release plates can be used on the MP-20 (Note: dual safety lock design is not available on other brands of quick release plates). And for precision alignment, the Sirui MP-20 has a built-in bubble level .
Sirui VH-90 Quick Release Video Platform
If you’re working with the new Sirui P-204S/224S/324S/424S Video Monopods, you’ll want the option of quickly attaching and removing you video gear. Whether you’re working with a high-end video outfit or using your DSLR video system, having a quick release platform that utilizes popular Manfrotto quick release plates (a Sirui version is included) makes body changes fast and easy.
So the next time you plan to go shooting with your monopod, make sure you have a convenient Sirui Quick Release Platform and Quick Release Plate attached.
