    I'm not sure but it looks like a big Sachtler Touch and Go plate

    There are half a dozen other tripod manufacturers who have adopted this QR plate standard as well.

    I’m not so sure. I have a Miller which I believe to be same size as touch and go plate and an antique sachler which is bigger - this looks more like the latter.

    35 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._35_Touch.html

    16 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._16_Touch.html

    Both described as touch amd go - I think this is the larger while the smaller is what everyone is talking about

    The dimensions are listed under the spec tab

    Fyi: In my circles the smaller plate, on the bottom, is a “tripod wedge-plate”. As you can see, the ends of the plate are angled, forming a “wedge” that clicks into the tripod head.

    The larger thingy, the one the camera clicks into, is a “VCT plate”. VCT being “video connect tripod”, if I am not mistaken. Also known as a “camera-plate”. Also known generically as a “quick-release” plate.

    After being on a shoot where one of the VCT-plate / tripod wedge combos was forgotten back in the shop, I carry a spare in my vehicle at all times. Both the VCT and the wedge, b/c without both each is useless.

    Spares, spares, spares. cya
    Big sources matter.
