Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release System

Content creators who work with a mirrorless camera and multiple support systems can get frustrated when switching plates and changing from a tripod to camera slider, boom pole or gimbal. To address this, the Manfrotto Move Quick Release System was created to provide a universal 360º QR system, which saves time when switching between virtually any support.

Manfrotto Move Quick Release System Guide

Our Manfrotto MOVE guide answers all of the questions about how MOVE works, in order for you to be able to adopt this versatile ecosystem and speed up your workflow for stills and moviemaking. We’ve also produced a video review which is coming soon to illustrate how much time photographers, videographers and hybrid creators can save with this innovative QR design.

What is Manfrotto MOVE?

The Manfrotto MOVE is a universal 360º quick release system, which makes switching between set-ups far easier. The Manfrotto Move Quick Release System comes with Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release Plate and Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release Base, enabling you to switch between sliders, boompoles, tripods and gimbals far more intuitively.

You can add universal Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release System Bases onto each piece of equipment you own for even faster switching. By adding bases to various supports and the Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release Plate to mirrorless cameras or other devices, you’ll be able to quickly switch from one set-up to another, without having to screw and unscrew various plates. This creates a faster, more efficient and streamlined process to keep your creativity flowing and ensures the MOVE ecosystem is perfect for photographers, filmmakers and hybrid shooters.

Which products are compatible with Manfrotto MOVE?

Manfrotto’s MOVE is universal and compatible with virtually any support system, which includes standard 3/8" and 1/4" threads. Manfrotto also designs equipment which is specifically made for the MOVE system, including the Manfrotto 300XM 3-Axis Modular Gimbal and Manfrotto Fast GimBoom Carbon Fibre.

The 300XM gimbal and GimBoom can be controlled wirelessly with MOVE, enabling you to capture more dynamic and difficult remote shots, such as when the gimbal is on a car. You can also shoot gib-type shots when the gimbal is attached to the boom pole, with a controller moving the set-up remotely.

With MOVE you can switch between ball heads, video heads and tripods with ease, which makes it a practical solution for photographers as well as videographers.

How does the Manfrotto MOVE quick release system work?

The Manfrotto MOVE quick release system works by adding a MOVE Quick Release Base to any support system, such as a tripod, gimbal, slider or boom pole. Then simply attach the Manfrotto MOVE Quick Release Plate to a tripod head or mirrorless camera and snap them together.

The beauty of this solution is the ability to change between virtually any support, thanks to universal 3/8" and 1/4" threads. This enables content creators to work more quickly with gear from any brand, including Manfrotto who have the Manfrotto move gimbal and GimBoom designed specifically for the system.
