    What type would you like and what type of tripod are you mounting it on? There are a large number that will fit on them.

    I *thought* there was only 2 available for the Hassy. The old one and the new one (has bubble). Both, way overpriced -- Hassy of course. You mean there are aftermarket ones?

    A quick-release is not dependant on the type of tripod; it's dependent on the thread sizes of the tripod and camera.

    I guess it would not be dependant on the tripod, but is dependant on the type of tripod head you are using.

    Besides the Hassy brand, Kirk also makes arca swiss type plates for hassy

    Http:www.kirkphoto.com/newplate3p.html

    Acratech also has plates for them:

    Adorama lists a hassy brand plate for $34.95 and B&H has one in that price range as well.
