I standardized my mounting system around the Bogen Manfrotto quick release system and ball head. The plate and release plate look like this:

I have the NN5L and would like to keep the Manfrotto plate on my cameras, and allow for quick on-off on the NN5L for my cameras. I see that Fanotec now offers this, and says it "will work with many Manfrotto plates..."

Any one know if the Manfrotto plate I am using (upper picture) will allow use of the new Fanotec Quick Release?

Any info appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Please check NN3 and Nicks answer from 31. of december about the manfrotto plate. I think he has constructed an extra fitting side plate.

Hi
If you want to keep the clamp/plate system you have now another option is to use our 3/8" rail plate:

With plate attached to a Manfrotto clamp this allows mounting onto the rail of the Nodal Ninja.

Get the QRC2. It is more convenient to use them Manfrotto + rail plate, which requires you to use with the plate perpendicular to the camera body.
