or will find that they just won't use the ARCA plate.

So what you are saying is that I need to buy another camera?

WooHoo!!

No. All I am saying is that if you buy a Cinch MkII, it comes with our new ARCA plate. You don't need to use the ARCA plate though. The base Cinch is not dependent on any particular bit of hardware on the camera side. We include the ARCA plate because:

1- Roughly 70% of our customers don't have a plate or any other accessory in the tripod socket.

2- The system works optimally when the Cinch is mounted to the bottom of the camera.

L-plate users can use a Membrane Connector, our new PodMount and/or built in camera brackets to mount the Cinch - the ends are industry standard 3/8" webbing with tri-glides.

Sorry, it was just a joke. I was saying that since I had a spare arca swiss plate that I needed to buy another camera to go with it.

I'll go back to sitting in the corner now.

Haha, that's all on me, it totally went over my head!

I was up all night doing testing of all our components to prepare the final tweaking meeting with our supplier this morning at 8am. I'm not an 8am kinda person...

Are we still getting a QR system? I'll have to see about upgrading to Mk II, but then my basically new Mk I won't get any use.

I believe it's been said more than once that the MkI can essentially be upgraded to the Mk2 without being replaced. Correct me if I'm wrong, someone.

Nope.

We will be offering a CNC machined RC2 plate with dual side split key lugs that you can tie into with either the 3/8" webbing straps or Luma Secure Links (our QR system).

Just so I don't have to keep asking here when the new quick release will be available.... will it be announced in the Luma Labs mailing list (I'm subscribed but can't ever remember having received any messages), or in this thread here?

The membrane connector works very well with the RC2 plate. I wonder if it will still be available.
