Kirk L plate compatibility

Does anyone know if the Kirk L plate for the Canon 1D MkIII would fit a Canon 30D with the battery grip? I realise it won't be a perfect match for the shape of the camera, but I've seen a used one for sale for a good price and I'll compromise if it basically fits.

Thanks in advance.

I would be surprised if it would mount in any manner that would leave the camera usable. I'd hold out for a plate that is designed for the 30D.


Gear List:
Canon 5D MkIII
24-105mm f4L 70-200mm f2.8L Zeiss 50mm 1.4 Zeiss 18mm 3.5 Zeiss 25mm 2.0 100mm 2.8 Macro USM

I dont think it would mount. A 30D plate should be cheaper than a 1D plate anyhow, so keep looking for the right one. These things are machined to fit specific bodies.


Name is Peter and here is my gear:
Canon 5D II, Canon 7D, Canon 40D
Glass - Zeiss 21 f/2.8 ZE, Canon 35 f/1.4L, Canon 40 f/2.8 STM, Canon 24-70 f/2.8
L, Canon 85 f/1.2L II, Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, Canon 500 f/4L IS

For reference.

I have a RRS plate for the 1DMKII and use it on the 5D with grip a few times. It's a bit bigger but it will mount fine, you just have to reverse it and have the "curve" side to the front. It'll work fine, not pretty but will work.

I have the RRS L-plate for the 1DmkIII and it does not fit the 30D with the grip very well. Yes, you'll be able to mount the L-plate on the 30D with the grip but it won't be squared. Since the L-plates are contoured to the body, I imagine the same would be true with the Kirk plates, too.

To correct my post above, it was the body plate I was talking about not the L plate now that I reread the OP. :)
