What is the M-Plate compatible with?

Last Updated: Jun 14, 2016 01:02AM PDT
The built-in camera connection plate on the M-Plate is designed with a geometry that will fit into most Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss style tripod heads. For non-standard and non-supported camera plates, the M-Plate offers mounting mounts to attach virtually any plate system.

Below is a compatibility list of the built-in tripod plate connection that will be updated periodically. Some models from the same manufacturer may vary so we suggest testing them with the M-Plate before purchasing a new head. The models listed below are ones we have tested the M-Plate with.

Camera and Lens Compatibility
The M-Plate Pro is not compatible with small SLR bodies and over-sized lenses where the lens sits below the base of the camera. Certain lens hoods which store inversely on the lens may need to be removed for proper clearance. Dimensions of the M-Plate Pro with Hand Strap Attachment: here.Have a combo that works for you?
