    I have been working on custom camera plates that feature
    • reproducible mounting
    • strong anti-twisting
    • multi-camera compatibility
    • automatic alignment with quick release clamp and hence lens axis

    I will have one plate for all mid range Canon DSLRS from 20D to 60D, 7D and 5DII and another for the rebel from 300D to 600D. I will have a few for Nikon DSLRs that utilize a anti-twisting flange. To design the plates, I have bought many cameras.

    In order to design camera plates with wide compatibility, I need to know the shape of cameras in the market. To save my cost, I need to get some preliminary data before I get a real camera for measurement and testing. I can then rent a camera or buy a camera and sell it quickly. I can skip some models with similar shape. Your help will reduce my cost and time of camera plate development. I will put higher priorities for models with your input. Because of highly irregular shape of "point & shoot" cameras. I badly need data for them.

    Here is how you can help me.
    You need to have a flatbed scanner. Please send a scan of camera base at 600dpi to
    design.fanotec @ gm ail. co m. Remove spaces in between.

    Here are cameras I already have the data. So no scan is needed.

    5D/ 5DII/ 7D/ 10D/ 20D/ 40D/ 60D
    300D/ 350D/ 450D/ 550D
