I have multiple tripods and cameras which all use the Manfrotto quick release plate.
The plates stay on the cameras at all times.
I just purchased a new camera and the tripod mount hole on the bottom is too close to the battery / memory card door.
If a plate is attached, to change a battery or memory card, the plate will need to be removed.
I have researched this and can find no solution.
The thread is a common 1/4 - 20 and I can probably go to the hardware store and create a solution.
But before doing that, I'm wondering if anybody else has a solution for this.
