p.1 #1 · Nex 7 and arca swiss plate


Does anyone know of a solid arca swiss plate that mates well with the Nex 7 and doesn't wobble....besides the RRS plate?

Have the Sirui G-20 and the CF Sirui T-1205x tripod are they are both very solid. The only place where there is movement is the plate and the Nex 7 camera body (which is narrow).

If anybody has found a solution, I would be interested in hearing about it.

Thanks,

Mitch

No wobble.

The 1/4-20 tripod screw is machined to provide a self retaining screw which will not fall out and a diameter that takes all slack out of the fit.

Are there any similar solutions for the NEX-5N and Manfrotto type quick release plates (200PL-14 RC2)?

What's wrong with the RRS plate? I've had one on my NEX-7 from day 1 and it's as solid as a rock.

Nothings wrong with it. I have heard good things. I just know it is the most expensive option.

I have this, quite solid. The heaviest lens I have used with this plate is around 500gr. Definitely you don't want to go any higher. However, I have an adjustable QR clamp so I'm not sure if it would have the standard Arca dimension. I know that Arca QR plate from different brands do have a slight dimensional deviation from each other.

I went ahead and bought one from Jim. I have the Sunwayfoto one and it moves when I tighten down my clamp. Thanks for the help guys.

I also have the SunwayFoto L Plate on Nex7 and have to say I hate it all kinds of wobble was thinking of Velcro between plate and camera bottom but think I'll opt for an RRS L plate I noticed Jim's L Plates are out of stock

Ha! I tried a paperclip. Definitely not the way I want to go with a $700 camera. The RRS group makes good products and I have heard really good things about Jim's plate.

It's as small as possible, I have it for both 5N and 7 and it's very good.
