I have a Cullman Tripod quick release which will fit any tripod. I found it very good and easy to use, When out walking I take the camera off the tripod frequently. I thought others might be interested.

The Benbo likewise fits any tripod and is very good at around £17.

Quick release ... I couldn't live without it - Once I discovered it many years ago I bought as many shoes as cameras and just leave them on the bottom of each camera.

My point is that the Cullman and possibly others will fit any tripod. I use mine on a Slik 88 I bought in 1988. Great tripod still available as Slik Master Classic. :D The Benbo adapter is a similar price. See it here. http://www.fotosense.co.uk/shop_details.asp?productID=1571#

There are actually quite a few that will fit any exisiting tripod.

I use a Manfrotto quick release head (http://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/manfrotto/cache/off/pid/2376?livid=107|117&idx=118) both on my Tripod and on my Monopod.

I don't know the Cullman range, but I do suggest to anyone moving into QR and haven't got these before then I suggest that you invest in a system that is flexible such as either of the ones listed and one where the quick release has a lock to prevent accidental unlocking so you don't drop your camera by accident.

The one that I would recommend is the Novoflex Miniconnect.
It has a very small plate an a sturdy base. I like it because it doesn“t hurt your hand when holding the cam.
Has a very tight fit and holds a lot of weight.
