A Useful Photography Feature
A Nikon Tripod Quick Release Plate allows the photographer to quickly remove the camera from his hand to avoid any possible chance of damage that could occur during a long trip. They are normally made of chrome or brass plated steel with an anti-rust, black oxide finished finish and are usually attached to the camera via a single gold-plated screw. These plates are constructed from a sturdy plastic with an anti-rust, black oxide finished and are fitted with a silver metal ring on the base. The ring also helps to prevent moisture from reaching the interior parts of the camera. There are several designs available depending on the requirements of the photographer.
For those that wish to take more casual shots a Nikon Tripod Quick Release Plate may be more suitable. It is composed of rubberized black plate and consists of rubber "O" rings to prevent it slipping off. The most commonly found models are the standard sized and produced in two different designs: the hulu and bungkulu gelatin. The bungkulu selatan is a little bit larger than the hulu. The plates can either be attached to a standard tripod or a special "quick release" plate that enables the photographer to remove the camera from his hands and place it on a hard surface without fear of damaging the camera.
The standard rubber Nokia plates come with an O-ring that fits all sizes of the cameras. These plates fit right onto a standard tripod. Some people prefer to attach it to a portable tripod instead so that they may travel lightly. They can then remove the plates while still travelling.
The standard rubber Nokia plates that come with the Quick Release feature are about one inch in diameter. It is important to note that this is not the optimum size. A photographer should ensure that the size of the plates he/she purchases matches the camera being used. For example, if a photographer uses a Nikon D90S model then the ideal size of the plate should be the same.
Using a tripod with the Nikon Tripod allows for some flexibility when it comes to taking photographs. By using a tripod when you are travelling you have more flexibility when it comes to keeping the camera stable whilst on the move. However, if you have purchased a tripod with the Quick Release feature, it is recommended that you remove it whilst the camera is being transported. Doing so will ensure that the camera does not become damaged whilst being transported.
The Nikon Tripod Quick Release Plate comes in two different materials; rubber and metal. The advantage of using a metal plate is that the tripod will be protected from damage whilst still retaining its rigid structure. Rubber plates on the other hand are lightweight and can often be used for more general purposes such as walking around with your camera bag whilst carrying the equipment. Whichever type of plate you choose, making sure that the tripod has an adjustable weight feature will allow you to make the most of the plate when it comes to the type of photography undertaken.
