  1. Camera plates - suggestion

    #1

    Why not to produce body-specific camera plates?
    It would greatly increase the repeatability of camera positioning and approached NN5+RD(x) setups to the templatability.

    Nikon D200 and D300 which I used with NN stuff require minor modifications of current camera plate design - enlarge it a little and add a pin! It would increase the production cost on a couple of bucks, which I (and many customers) would gladly pay.

    What do you think?

    Nick, this is great!
    I agree to beta-test it

    Vinc?®n - it is not necessary to make plates for all every existing model.
    Major Nikons and Canons would be sufficient. The rest can live with present 'generic' plate

    Nikon D200 and D300 have same pin position. Suspect that D3(X) has the same pin position too.

    Canon users can comment on their cameras - I owuld be surprised to discover that Canon engineers not smart enough to use 'standdard' (for their products) pin position.

    Yep you are right, probably most models of a company have same plates I'd like also to beta test if there is something to test
