Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Some one gave me their unused Velbon videomate 600 tripod that was missing the quick release plate. Being new to photography it took some figuring out to first determine what I needed to make it work and then to find the missing part. Trusting the Crutchfield reputation I ordered it, got the part in a couple days, attached it to the camera and just like that the tripod worked fine with the camera. A perfect fit to to tripod. However as a tripod novice I don't know what "normal" is and this is what bothers me about the part's placement on the camera: Off the tripod the attached plate causes the camera to lean heavily on the lens as the plate extends a quarter inch beyond the back of the camera. That minor irritant aside, very happy that Crutchfield had the correct part available and in my hands so quickly.
Basic & Practical - accurate product description. The plate fits tight in tripod. Easy enough to install and release from tripod as designed. Simple install to camera.
Esthetics. The plate's design placement on D600 camera.

Velbon QB-5LC fits my older Velbon S-4000 tripod very well. Excellent price with shipping included. Other model listed as compatible is NOT. THIS IS THE ONE TO ORDER!
Fits and works very well. Shipped quickly.
