Which quick release should I choose: Classic, FlipLock, or MonoballFix?

Arca Swiss Tripod Heads are available with either the Classic, FlipLock or MonoballFix quick release plate. Each has their own individual advantage, find which suits your Photography workflow the best!

Classic has a screw knob that tightens the quick release jaws closed, along with a dual channel dovetail.
A great plus of the Classic is its adaptability as it can screw closed to tighten different widths of Arca style camera plates. This is a first choice if you use multiple manufacturer camera plates and L-brackets.

FlipLock provides a lever locking system with a three-step unlocking process. FlipLock is the choice for professional photographers since it is very secure and won't unlock accidentally if caught on a sleeve, strap, cord, etc. FlipLock includes the dual-channel dovetail for Arca Swiss camera plates and view camera components.

MonoballFix is a compact quick release with a minimal design featuring a simple press to lock lever.  It is the lightest option in the group with a single channel/dovetail design. It includes two safety pins in the plate channel that prevent your camera slipping through if unlocked while tipped downward.
