    On larger tripod heads from Sachtler, Miller, Vinten, O'Connor, Cartoni and others, this larger plate is standard. The smaller plate is for smaller heads with lower payloads.

    Mitch I think the water is being muddied - the op should match his dimensions to the two sets of dimensions I linked to.

    I have the linked by you Miller plate with my Arrow 25 head and believe it to be smaller than the op’s picture

    Sam, the plate Mitch linked to is the full-size touch-and-go. There is a link further down that page for the mini-Euro plate also. The OP has the full-size version.

    As mentioned above, the VCT is Sony's quick release plate for their cameras and does not mate to any of these wedge plates mechanically. You'd screw in a touch-and-go to the bottom of your VCT, but the touch-and-go itself would then mount into a receiver built into the tripod or a separate receiver, commonly referred to as an RBQ (after Ronford Baker who was the original manufacturer of the design, now available from many manufacturers).

    CP There is a possibility that you/mitch are correct. Evaluating the phtotos is virtually impossible without having one in hand and checking the slot pattern.. hence my advice for the OP to compare the two sets of dimensions listed on the links I left.

    In europe (or UK was in europe once ) we consider the 'touch and go plate' to be the one that fits the sachtler item https://cvp.com/product/sachtler_1091 or the video 18 head. The larger plate is a 'Ronford Plate' these may not be technically correct titles as satchler seem to have two products named "touch and go"

    For lovers of grip porn I bought this last year. It has the larger plate https://www.instagram.com/p/B8kZdBgA..._web_copy_link

    This thread got away from me. Thanks for all of the input. Here are the dimensions: 80mm x 120mm x 8mm

    It does look almost exactly like the larger Sachtler Touch and Go plate and the dimensions on B&H match. The only difference I see are an additional locating hole in the one I have in hand and the corners appear to be a little more rounded. The anodization is still mostly there which suggests that it was manufactured that way.

    Here are some more snaps:

    Derail: Can I ask a question, as I've seen similar comments on another board from those in Europe. Why do all our brothers and sisters from there keep saying "the UK is no longer in Europe"? The UK is no longer in the European Union. Europe is a continent/geographical area and the UK is still there, last I checked. Am I arguing pedantic semantics, or do I "just don't get it" since I don't live there?

    Mitch and Charles (and others) are right. 120mm is the Ronford Baker standard that others adopted.

    This is yours: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._35_Touch.html

    This will also fit: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._mounting.html

    So will this: https://woodencamera.com/products/to...rbq-compatible

    So, over there, most view Europe AS the political/trade body the EU(European Union), instead of Europe as a geographical region/continent? Versus someone like me who, when I hear “Europe”, I think of the “simple” area/countries in the continent, NOT the organization EU.
