Okay, first off - I just want to praise Smallrig's customer service team for being virtually the best customer service I've ever seen in my entire life. I preordered this product, and they actually kept in contact with me to make sure I wanted the product still despite delays. Not only that, but when they did ship it, they sent it through fedex EXTREMELY URGENT airmail from CHINA, arriving in only 2 days! It must have cost them more in shipping than this product was worth! This literally blew my mind and I couldn't stop telling my coworkers about it.
Now about the actual product, this is one of the most innovative products I've ever seen. Its just as light as the normal Crane M2 plate, the same dimensions (despite being a little longer for the screw), same color, and has made my entire workflow go from taking 5+ minutes to set up, to just a few seconds. I absolutely refused to use the old plate and keep it on my a6400 because it blocked my battery and SD compartment - and having a small arca plate such as the Peak Design one is absolutely beautiful. Being able to just slide the quick release plate to adjust my tilt axis rather than use some unwieldy tension screw has also saved me such an insane amount of time. This also completely, utterly, crushes the problem of trying to balance heavier lenses such as the sigma 16mm f1.4 on my a6400 because there is no big fat screw at the bottom to hit the arms of the Crane m2. Seriously, this is the most genius product I've ever seen and I now basically worship smallrig if they can keep pumping out products like this. This should have been the default plate that came with the crane m2 and smallrig definitely has to contact zhiyun and see if they can manufacture these plates for them for their next gimbals.
I want exactly this for a Ronin-S!!
I bought two original plates for my Zhiyun Crane M2 and modified one of them to mount my camera and another one to mount my cellphone keeping appropriate position without additional balance adjustment. The item you created resolves the issue very easy. Good idea. Thank you.
This looks extremely useful! I was waiting for someone to make exactly this! If you keep a arca swiss plate on your camera, this is a must have.
