Manfrotto 454 Micropositioning Plate Review: Is this Plate a Smart Buy?
We always love it when a macro photography expert takes the time to review one of the latest pieces of equipment. We all know how tempting it can be to rush right out to buy the latest photography gear, but that’s not always a wise decision. More than a few macro photographers have invested in equipment hastily, only to regret their purchasing decisions down the road.
We want you to avoid buyer’s remorse if you are considering purchasing the Manfrotto 454 Micropositioning Plate. We know that there are lots of photographers interested in this plate, but we want you to know everything you need to know prior to making your final purchasing decision. That’s why we searched around and found this Manfrotto 454 Micropositioning Plate review from the respected, knowledgeable photographer, Graham Houghton. Take a look and see what Graham has to say in his micropositioning plate review.
As you may already know, using a tripod fixture, like the Manfrotto 454 Micropositioning Plate can be helpful when you are shooting photographs with a very high level of magnification. It’s always nice to be able to rack your focus, rather than using the lens alone when you are shooting very close up shots. And while we do believe that serious macro photographers would do well to add a nice micropositioning plate to their photography arsenal, judging by Graham’s review of this macro lens, you may want to search around for a different model.
We did a bit of additional research and did find that there were some photographers who said they had no problems with this plate. However, you need to weigh the available online reviews against what we presented to you in today’s macro photography video post to decide whether or not you should purchase this particular micropositioning plate.
