What is the M-Plate™?
The M-Plate is a camera tripod plate system with universal mounting compatibility, integrated Manfrotto RC2 / Arca-Swiss connections, and modular attachment points.
Note: The M-Plate shown in the video is a prototype unit and does not reflect the production version which will have a better form factor, fit and finish. Design considerations are being made to make it more compact.
- World's first tripod plate to integrate both Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss mounts. Also compatible with other tripod plate systems.
- Quick-attach to any tripod while using your favorite camera strap systems such as our own C-Loop. Also compatible with BlackRapid, SunSniper, Spider Holster, Cotton Carrier and others.
- Hand Grip Friendly. Adds hand grip function to cameras that lack the mounting point.
- The built-in M-Link Port™ will connect with future photo and video attachments, including flash brackets and video rigs that are currently in development.
The M-Plate securely fastens to the base of the camera using a threaded hex head bolt, while a protective neoprene base layer prevents the M-Plate from moving once in position. A hex key will be included to attach your M-Plate.
When will I receive my M-Plate?
The Kickstarter project ends on our chief designer's birthday: December 8th, 2011. At that time we will gather shipping information from backers and process pre-orders as quickly as possible.
Why the funding?
The $15,000.00 funding goal is to help offset the time spent on research and development. The funding will also help produce the initial batch of M-Plates which will be made here in the USA.
Who designed the M-Plate?
Patents have been filed.
