anyone any idea how the R1 universal stop plate works?
If you are talking about these stops, the should be used on the ring clamp foot itself and I suppose they have to be added from below. So when the foot of the lens ring glides into the clamp, this add on should stop it at your NPP on one side of the R1 clamp and then you can easily close the clamp at NPP Position.
I do not have one, but this is the only way I can imagine it should work.
nope - it's not like those. Here’s a picture:
Instead of a lens-specific stop plate like this one: http://store.nodalninja.com/products...0-4-stops.html, you can see in the picture the ‘universal stop plate’ set consists of a standard-sized rail stop but with a longer groove rail, and 7 ‘chocks’ of different lengths - 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 8.5mm, 9mm, 9.5mm & 10mm. There is also a white collar ring & bolt.
I’m assuming that you use the chocks to set the hole that the spring-loaded retaining pin on the R1 fits into, according to your lens NPP......
Right you have to use the little "chocks" and combine them to get the correct settings. Here is attached a non yet official document with all settings you can do. A clean manual should be avalaible in future to explain more in details how it works
Here is temporary url of file as I'm unable to upload it on forum http://www.skivr.com/temp/LRP.pdf
It's only used for R10. Install the machined M3 screw on the central socket on the QR clamp. It acts as a stop screw like the R1. If the stop plate is out of range with the stop screw at the center position, install the stop screw with a white washer at the other 2 sockets.
