Very swee packaging. Made in Korea.
The special plate.
Mounted onto my G1541T.

Overall, it's very sturdy. It's a little bit bigger than my other Markins Q3T, and also very sturdy, friction is there and very high quality. The price w/ shipping is a bit above 400, and it's totally worth the money. Locking your camera is also a simple affair, just flicking the lever will lock it in position tight.
