Question for existing users:

What are you guys using for ballhead clamp plates? I've been looking but RRS doesn't seem to have anything specific to the M6 II or the original M6 for that matter. I see a couple on Amazon that might work. My concern is the plate covering the battery/card door on the bottom of the body (M6 II). Are there solutions that have proven to work well? I'm thinking of picking up the Sirui T-255k t-05 tripod as a travel tripod.

Thanks!

This one stays on my m6 and I can access the battery and memory card.

Thank you! Arca compatible? It looks like it may be, with a screw clamp anyway.

I'm using this Pro Media Gear plate on the M6.

May call RRS about a dedicated L plate for the M6 MKII. I don't feel they view this nor the M3, M6 as a serious body to devote the development costs to. Hejnar might be a possibility. There are imported L plates for the M3, I just didn't pursue them because I liked RRS and supported them while based in CA. Still like them, I don't have a need at the moment.

I have some RRS L plates from the Canon G9 and G15 that come close. I haven't taken the time to grind off the tabs and fit it up. As well, it blocks the left side access to the USB and mic ports. This wouldn't pose an issue for my uses though.

Yes, I use a Leofoto LH-30 (RRS clone).

Also, FYI I tried the L-plate on the M6 II and it did not fit. I didn't try only the base plate though but I have a feeling that would be off as well.

Took a drive to Walla Walla, WA and had a good time visiting some familiar sites.

I'm still playing around with the AF on the M6 Mark II. I think it is doing a pretty good job with tracking based on what I see so far. I also think the sensor itself is really nice as far as recovering shadow detail etc. I'm going to put together a review soon.

In the meantime I thought this was an interesting catch: Green Lynx Spider with young ones. I didn't realize for a few minutes that I had the lens at 45mm lol. Still, image is pretty good. This reresents about 1500 pixel square crop. Just a quick edit, I'll replace it with a full one at some point.

Not a product shot. I'd placed this cologne on a table at my mother's house and was about to take it with me when I thought the light looked good enough to take a picture with.

Saturn - about to pass behind the moon (Saturn can be seen below the moon and to the right) - oddly enough, this was all visible in a blue sky. I never thought to look for Saturn in any other conditions except darkness. EOS M6 + EF 100-400mmL II + EF 2x III Extender (possibly slightly cropped - though I may have added the EF 1.4x III Extender as well).

There's a bit of grain to this shot from the high ISO noise.
I could have reduced it with NR software but it seems fine as it is.

A great series of shots! It seams that the 32mm would be a reason all by itself to get an EOS-M - all your shots with it are gorgeous :-) (and the others are just great).
Thanks for showing - b.r. Klaus
