These Giottos tripod accessories attach effortlessly to the top of your tripod using a simple 1/4" camera screw, but it allows your digital cameras to defy gravity.

Giottos has constructed the L Plate with a non-scratching cork top, both vertical and horizontal safety retention strips, and a safety button that stops your camera from falling off the plate during adjustments and rotation. This camera plate has been designed for use with several Giottos quick release plates, including the Giottos MH655, MH656, MH657, and MH658.
