  • Arca Style Quick Release Clamp

    So...I was just looking at the Arca Style Quick Release Clamp available as an accessory for the NN5. I know it says not recommended for the NN3 and I'm wondering what the reason for that is. I have the NN3 MkII that I use with the Nikon D200 and 10.5 Nikkor DX fisheye lens. I have an RRS L-Bracket. Its really a pain for me to switch back and forth between the NN3 Camera plate and my L-Bracket when in the field. Anyone know if its possible to use the Arca Style Quick Release Clamp?

    what is your lower rail setting? we are working on thinner adapter for quick release plate. It will be out next month. It may work for you. What is the thickness of your L-plate?

      My lower rail setting is 63. The thickness of my L-Bracket is 10mm.

        Can the new arca style clamp be used without the camera mounting plate? If I'm not mistaken the current arca style plate requires the use of the camera mounting plate which adds to its weight, thickness, and seems to make it an askward design.

          we are making a thin QR adapter which may work for you. I will test it when it is released. chances are high. :-) Do you have the RRS lever QR? it will work better than our screw lock one. YOu need the adapter too.

            So you're saying that I need to use my RRS lever QR + New Thin Arcastyle Clamp + Camera Mounting Plate?

                the lever clamp is preferred over the screw knob clamp because of limited clearance from the rail when a thin adapter is used. You only need one clamp + thin adapter plate. The thin adapter plate replaces the camera mounting plate. In fact the adapter is stripped down version of the camera mounting plate.

                  Is the thin plate adapter in production yet?

                      I am hoping that you will release the low profile Arca style QR as soon as possible. I could use it for an upcoming trip but your staff say that it now will not be avaible until late this year.

                      BTW, it would be nice if an extension capability was available. Like you suggest using the T20 to extend the rail, why not build some extension into the low profile clamp?

                        I have an economical QR coming. It has some extension capability. It also support tripod socket off-set up to 40mm.
