I bought a used Sony NEX-7 body. It came with this Really Right Stuff (RRS) tripod adaptor (I think?). Does anyone know how it works? And do I need an RRS tripod?

RRS Tripods are pretty darn $$$.

Thanks!

These gizmos are L-brackets; most tripod ballhead makers have them to work with their quick release head clamps.
These attach to the camera bottom like a quick release plate, allow a quick change to the vertical position, then reclamp.

Most of these work interchangeably between brands, based on the Area-Swissdesign format. Check with RRS to see if their's is universal design. Probably so.

300$ to 500$ for a MONOPOD?

Completely Ridiculous.



Too much is never enough

I believe that it supports the camera for vertical shots, when on the tripod, relieving stress on the camera's screw mount.
