p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon PB-4 Bellows QR Plate

Wondering what QR plate would work well with a Nikon PB-4 on an Acratech Ultimate ballhead. Already got a Wimberley P5 for the body of the camera when not shooting with the bellows.

Many thanks in advance.

i suggest you call RRS at 888-777-5557 or Wimberley at 888-665-2746. you might get the most accurate answer.

For bellows use on the PB-4, the camera mounts to the bellows directly or with a lens mount converter, so camera mounting is not required. To mount the whole bellows to a tripod or other base, any short general purpose plate will work fine, as long as the thread size matches. I do not know if the PB-4 is only 1/4 inch threads, but most of the bellows from that era were. Really Right stuff makes short general purpose plates with either 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch screws, so just get what you need.

If you have any reason to move the whole assembly closer or further away from a subject, you may want to consider a longer plate on the bottom of the bellows. That would allow you to loosen a clamp and manually slide everything to help get the framing and focus you need. All the Arca Swiss manufacturers make longer general purpose plates with 1/4 inch screws, so Really Right Stuff, Wimberley, Kirk, and Henjar are all potential sources.
