screw a RC4 plate to the bottom of a acra plate?

I think it's the other way round...I want Arca plates on my lenses so would need to fit an Arca receiver to the RC4 head...then all my lenses will fit the geared head.

Neat idea Case. I have RC4s because I bought the Manfrotto Geared head 410 junior I think it's called. It's the best tripod head I've seen for using TS-E lenses and the RC4 is pretty much foolproof, but having those RC4 plates on my other lenses is a pain in the butt as they're bigger than anything else I've seen.

What would impress me is a conversion for the 410 head to take an Arca Swiss plate....!!

+1 the 410 is great, don't have one atm but will grab a used one when it pops up next... if ever. Its interesting how the ball-heads could easily be converted, but the tri-heads like the 410, are more moulded and can't just switched easily. I personally like how big they are, theres alot of surface, and its really solid so i'm very confident in them.


Feel free to call me Case.

yeah, I got that. Your current head takes RC4 plates right? So, something like this:

on the lens/camera

then this:
IMAGE: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/images150x150/555491.jpg

and thread the above clamp onto the plate here:
IMAGE: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/images345x345/124665.jpg

that would actually give you a setup where you could change out the acra style clamp for a normal bogen one as you wanted, if you use the plate...

otherwise you'd have to tap the surface of the head you have somehow and bolt the acra clamp onto it.

Really right stuff also has a page with a walk through on how to convert certain bogen heads to use their clamps. Their site is down right now, but maybe they'd be able to help.

Thank you very much for that Ben...that's the route I will investigate. I appreciate your help.

Glad this got posted on here. I found it a week ago thru a friend and was going to make sure it got passed around. Thing has blown up since the Gizmodo article. Spiderpro looks cool but I never liked how it swung, this system is more for lightweight SLRs but it's a nice basic system that seems like it will expand nicely as he makes more options for the mounts.

I'm in for a $75!

A NEW WAY TO CARRY YOUR CAMERA! GOOD INVENTION LESS THAN 3 MONTHS TO BUY

Hi guys I am a fan of www.kickstarter.com (external link)

Its a site where people posts their ideas and inventions.

Then people pledge money to see these projects funded.

If you pledge enough money for the project, AND the project gets fully funded for production, you get a part of that deal, or item you helped fund.

WELL I FOUND THIS: http://www.kickstarter​.com …mera-clip-system?ref=live (external link)

I pledged 50 USDollars on it to get me one.

Pledge in multiples of 50 to buy more than one.

For us users with the 5dii, dont go heavier than an 85 1.2.. it might make things awkward to walk with,

BUT

PROS: Lens changing on the fly with ONE HAND. No Strap to hinder your movement. LIGHTWEIGHT, Use of more than one to carry multiple cameras. and many more YOU CAN THINK OF.

CONS: Easy to lose if you remove it from yourself, Can't COMFORTABLY support a 5d/1d4 + weight of 24-70/70-200 or greater weight.


I am not advertising FOR them, i'm just a FAN spreading the word to good people for good use.. let me know what you think and if you pledged!

I backed this up on May 4 and should have it in 10 days. We will see how well it is made and works.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

With 3000 backers, I'm tempted to help to just TRY one out…I already have a quick strap.

Kirk makes a clamp (external link) that will fit directly onto the RC4 without you having to thread the clamp onto the plate.
