p.1 #1 · generic plate compatible with RRS lever clamp?


Are there any generic plates that are compatible with Really Right Stuff lever clamps? Lots are compatible with the screw-type, but I have not seen any for the quick release lever clamp.

p.1 #3 · generic plate compatible with RRS lever clamp?


I use Hejnar plates and rails with my RRS B2 LR II lever clamps. They work fine, just as well as my RRS L-brackets, plates, and rails. At least one of my lever clamps is from 2009, which predates the RRS LR clamp adjustment mod. by at least a couple of years. I have no personal knowledge of this "mod.", but it's often discussed on similar threads about RRS clamps.

I have one sunwayfoto camera body plate (1DX) that works fine in my RRS lever release clamps.

I bought a basic square one for my Rolleiflex from Sunfoto and it's slightly too small for it to grab and hold it. I b slide it right out the end!

mitesh, sunwayfoto says it is not compatible with the lever clamp. Is there a specific model that you know works?

jcolwell, they specifically state they are compatible. Thank you for the pointer.

m.sommers - that is exactly my problem with my generic.

howard, their clamps say they work with the lever, too. Thanks.

Thanks to everybody for responding.

i got the CustomSLR M-Plate Pro, it slid a little bit in my BH-55 LRII. I have a BH-40 LR II coming in the mail, but I don't have high hopes.

I wouldn't recommend.

Their 60mm lever release clamps were updated in 2012 to auto-adjust to any plate. I use both of these models and they work fine with the variety of plates I have.

it is a well made plate but the upper edges need to be broken over with a tumbler.

not any plate, a plate within a range of sizing differential

Well presumably they don't work with a Slidefix plate...

presuming to presume to assume. there is always someone out there that will prove the all plate theory wrong.

I just received my Hejnar plate yesterday, for the D-610. Perfect fit in my BH-55 RRS lever clamp. Very happy.
