Tripods, jibs and sliders; they all require an attachment mechanism for our cameras and different brands provide different mounting plate standards. A small company, edelkrone, based in Czech Republic claims to provide one universal piece of gear that allows to attach your camera to any mounting plate.
edelkrone is famous for their smart inventions in the world of filmmaking gear. I personally know them for their sliders, but they keep on figuring out other ingenious ways to help us to tell stories; their slogan "Reinvent" is spot on. These guys take current well known rig solutions, that we take for granted, and re-design the very core principles of the gear, creating a new product.
Their new invention, QuickRelease One, seems to come in very handy when you have different types of mounting plates in your gear arsenal. Placed at the bottom of the camera just like a normal mounting plate, the QuickRelease One takes advantage of the standard 1/4"-20 screw all plates have. It contains a locking mechanism that quickly attaches to the screw and the actual mounting plate stays on the gear head and doesn't have to be removed. It is designed mainly for DSLRs and lightweight cameras up to 6.6lb (3 kg). Priced at 89.99 Euro, it is available for purchase on their website.
