Sometimes it’ s the little things that matter most. If your shooting workflow uses many different camera support systems such as tripods, gimbals or sliders and you constantly switch your camera from one to another, you need something like the new Kessler Kwik Release Adapter V2.

This new quick Kwik Release Receiver V2 works just like the previous model in that it attaches to your existing equipment and accepts standard Arca-Swiss plates. Just mount the camera on it, tighten the lever and off you go. No screws, no slipping, easy balancing. Neat!

The main difference between V1 and V2 is the pattern of the mounting holes. The new Kwik V2 sports a 1″ spaced hole pattern which makes it much more universal. Also, there are four additional 1/4-20″ mounting holes instead of the legacy 8-32 holes found on the V1 version. The new Kwik Release Receiver V2 is designed specifically to work as an easy quick release system for Inovativ carts.
