This is an analogue model of the popular Manfrotto adapter for steadycam / tripod / monopod.
I modelling it in CAD by images of adapter Manfrotto 577, 701HDV with sliding plate 501PL. Then printed and installed on my handmade steadicam. It is easy to use and the camera has protection from falling out the place.
