Manfrotto makes anti-twist plates for their RC2 and RC0 quick release systems:

Hi, thanks for that.

But unless I am missing something, looking at the images (Manfrotto don't tend to describe their products very well anyway), I don't see the mechanism that prevents those plates twisting under the camera body.

I can see how they won't twist in relation to the receiving grip/base unit on the tripod head but I just don't see what it is that prevents the cameras twisting once the camera is mounted on the tripod head.

For example, when my camera is tilted to portrait mode I often find that my camera has twisted and I have to re-aligned and re-tighten the camera quick-release plate at the base of my camera; there is never a problem of the camera + plate combo twisting in relation to receiving grip on the tripod head though because the grips are designed to avoid that issue.
