Remember the industry standard tripod plate we have been buying for the last 10 years, with a 1/4″ screw and a 3/8″ screw…well NO LONGER !!!
Seems like the Italians have lost their 3/8″ drill bit and no longer supply new 2016 tripod plates with 3/8″ screws any more but now supply a more sexy 3/8″ tripod adapter, if you have ever used this adapter you know its a bad idea !!!
Dear Manfrotto take it from me…HD Warrior who is a big fan of your goods…stop the rot NOW, this is such a bad idea most professional camcorders use both the 1/4″ and the 3/8″ tripod screws. Do NOT take the idea from your younger designer that we are all using DSLRs now or we may be forced to source the Chinese alternative.
