Accepting Pre-orders. Now shipping Base Plates for the camera body (without battery grip). 11/21/2018

The Really Right Stuff BZ7 base plate is CNC machined from solid 6061-T6 aluminum to precisely fit the Nikon Z7 and Z6 camera bodies.  Utilizing the Z7/Z6's own shape, and proprietary hardware that threads into its 1/4"-20 socket, the RRS BZ7 plate sits rigid, square, and motionless once installed.  Having a standard 1.5" wide RRS dovetail railing machined in, it will consistently lock into any RRS quick release clamp or compatible Arca-Swiss clamp.

 

Importantly, the RRS BZ7 can be used as normal with the Nikon FTZ adapter*.  Other features include an integrated anchor for installing a conventional camera strap straight onto the plate.  It also has a QD socket for quickly installing QD-type camera straps.  The shape of the plate allows for full access to the battery door while enhancing the ergonomics and safety of the Z7/Z6 body's grip. 

 

The RRS BZ7 plate is the premier solution for mounting the Z7 or Z6 camera to a tripod.  Being part of a modular set, it also accepts a custom, CNC machined L-shaped component, turning it into a full featured L-plate with both horizontal and vertical RRS dovetail rails. As combined, Really Right Stuff BZ7-L Set has the unique benefit of allowing photographers to quickly switch from landscape to portrait orientations without having to recompose their image. It features a second QD socket, integrated hex key, and full access to the left side port doors of the camera.  The upright is shaped to allow the doors to fully swing out of the way.  Finally, the L-component can be slid up to 1.25" away from the left hand side of the camera, in order to accommodate full cable tethering while shooting in portrait orientation.

 

Optionally, we offer a one-piece L-plate, the Really Right Stuff BZ7-UL.  For those who can go without the many features listed above and instead focus on simplicity and weight, without compromising strength, rigidity, fit, and finish. 



Please note:

 

1. L-plates may not accommodate every size and shape of USB, HDMI, MIC, or 3rd party cable release plug on the market

2. *To install or uninstall the Nikon FTZ from the bayonet, the camera and plate must not be locked into a clamp.  Once installed, the camera, FTZ, and plate all lock into and out of clamps as normal.

*Note: The Safety Stop feature is designed to prevent a camera from sliding out from a clamp when the ballhead is oriented into the drop notch during portrait orientation shooting. Because an L-plate allows the user to mount a camera in portrait orientation without needing to use the ballhead drop notch, this feature is not necessary.
