The Secced VCT18 Tripod Adaptor is a one-touch adapter to attach/detach portable broadcast cameras or camcorders to the tripod. VCT 18 is a professional tripod attachment, a robust, completely metal construction, similarly to VCT 14. VCT-18 provides a greater stability and rigid mount between the tripod and the camera and above all a simple, safe and quick-release.
The VCT18 is built, designed and functionally the same as the Sony VCT 14, VCT U14, Panasonic SHAN-TM700, JVC KA-551U, PA-DV5000 tripod adaptors, but most of all it's equivalent to VCT14. (*VCT U14 is less robust and has more plastic in it.)
This Camera Adaptor is compatible with broadcast portable cameras and camcorders, if they are supplied with the generally applied "V-wedge" (Sony type) tripod mounting plate.
