If you hate using different quick releases, have too many types or too many accessories which require them, innovative Turkish manufacturer Edelkrone recently released a new, and possibly revolutionary new type of quick release that might once and for all eliminate the need for any other system – it is called QuickRelease ONE.
What makes the QuickRelease ONE so special as you can see in the video is that it negates the need for a to part system which consists of a plate and a locking mechanism. Instead it simply clamps down directly to any 1/4″ 20 thread via quick release lever – simple and elegant (at least from the demo video – we are eager to try and see how it actually work ourselves).
The importance of this new product for photographers (if it works as advertised) can’t be overrated – there are so many things that needs to be quickly connected to a 1\4″ 20 screw even beyond cameras and they can all benefit from this option – although if you will need lots of these units for different cameras\accessories – the bottom line can be pretty expensive.
The Edelkrone QuickRelease ONE sells for just under €130 online.
