Edelkrone has just released version 2 of its popular universal quick release system: the Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2. This new version is lighter, stronger, and now has two levers, which make switching between equipment in seconds even easier. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2 – Features
Edelkrone just released the second version of its popular universal quick release system: the Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2. The Edelkrone QuickRelease One is not a new concept as the first version came out in 2015.
This quick release system supports cameras up to 6.6lbs/3kg, which makes it suitable for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The concept behind the Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2 is pretty simple:
- You attach the QuickRelease One v2 to the bottom of your camera via a 1/4-20″ mounting screw.
- Then, you can mount your camera to any tripod/slider/jib/gimbal or grip equipment that features a 1/4-20″ mounting screw by merely turning the lever on the QuickRelease One v2.
According to Edelkrone, it just takes 3 seconds to mount/release your camera from any 1/4-20″ screw. This concept is great if you don’t want to invest in a lot of different quick release plates and mounting plates. So what’s new with this second version?
Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2 – What’s New
Edelkrone didn’t totally change the product between the old and new versions. The concept remains the same, and it’s still made out of CNC machined aluminum & stainless steel components.
However, the company improved the QuickRelease One v2 by making it lighter at 3.5oz/100g. Also, there are now two levers to mount/release your camera as well as “a new ribbed design that provides a better, stronger grip,” according to Edelkrone.
Price and Availability
The Edelkrone QuickRelease One v2 is available now for $99.00/€90.00.
You got it, no significant change here, and if you already have the first version, you’ll have to decide for yourself if it’s worth upgrading or not.
