 Arca Swiss Style Aluminum Clamp   Price: $24.95

I keep an Arca-Swiss style plate on any photo device (body or lens) that I own so I can quickly mount to a tripod as necessary.The Arca-Swiss style quick release clamps and brackets have been are the de-facto standard for photographers around the world for many years now. Their sucess is mainly due to it's simplicity and reliability.

Note: the bracket is not included with this item.

One of my favorite photo accessories I own is the Green Pod. But, one of the annoyances for me in using the green (or red) pod is that I had to remove the Arca-Swiss bracket from my camera in order to use the Pod. Well, a few years back, I purchased an Arca-Swiss style clamp with a 1/4 inch screw thread socket from a major supplier of these brackets. It cost me $60 back then!

I recently lost that bracket, so I went looking for another. I found these wonderful brackets that were much nicer than my $60 bracket, for a fraction of the cost. This is what I use now on my Green Pod.

If you use the Green Pod and any Arca-Swiss style brackets, this is a great accessory to own - it provides you with a quick-release when using the Green Pod.
