Good adapter but I've purchased it for same price without sale. I've swapped everything to arca type and these work well for the gear that I have. I love not having different quick release plates to worry about.

Arca type?
https://photographylife.com/arca-...ase-system

"1) What is Arca-Swiss Quick Release System?

The Arca-Swiss quick release system is based on a two piece mechanism. The first piece, generally referred to as a "plate", is attached to a camera or a lens (or any other device). It comes in a standard, "arca-style" 35mm wide form with a 45° dovetail and can vary in length (a sample plate is illustrated above to the right of the tripod head).

The second piece is the mounting base, generally referred to as a "clamp", where the plate gets attached and secured. The clamp can be fully opened, allowing the plate to be dropped in and secured, or can be partially opened to allow the plate to be slid into the position. The biggest advantage of the Arca-Swiss quick release system is this ability to slide the plate without having to worry about mounting or dismounting anything. The 45° dovetail on the plate, as pictured below, allows equipment to be moved across the clamp and secured in a specific location using a side knob or a locking release"....

Oh ok, so it's like a universal system? Is all arca type gear guaranteed to be compatible?

Not guaranteed. But the only ones I'd be nervous with are very very cheap brands. But even they seem to get it right. I use a capture clip (brand: peak design) and have 2 different brand ball heads (vanguard and benro) and the arca Swiss plate fits both ball heads. It is very convenient and I will not be buying anything that doesn't accomodate this now. It's like buying something with a mini USB jack when everything is now usb-c

They usually are the same by 45 degree angled tapered design, but they differ in plate/base widths. You should choose your first locking base and plate, and then buy any further ones with matching. I am currently on 50mm.

I have arca style twist lock like these. Wishing I had latch locking since these are hard to twist when your camera sits tightly against the tripod or gimbal or my fingers are cold or tired.

I have a bunch of peak stuff, would this work with their mounts?

Would you recommend to not get this then and wait for a different latch? I have a tripod right now that has a twist tighten thing and I farking hate it.

Yes, I recommend a wait. Amazon has Arca type stuff in the $10 range anyway. I am currently in the market for latch considering my issues on my gimbal.

Peak has a good compatibility support page here: put one of their Arca plates on your camera and it should work with Capture as well as arca tripod compatible as well. Just get the receiver width right when you buy. (38mm I think)

Any recommendations on which I should be looking out for? I hate my current tripod twisty lock.

Is that exactly what I need?! I think it is. I have a Zhiyun Crane 2 which uses he plate but my Manfrotto ball head uses a different plate and I was looking for this to match it up. It really is a pain to swap plates.

I have the Crane 2 as well. Crane is arca style but very wide so I had to add an additional arca receiver.

Considering I have one camera body and three tripods I will likely get a Peak plate down the line in case I want to invest in some peak gear as well. Then I'll get some latch style receivers, but not the Manfrotto RC2 style which is a molded fit.
