Really Right Stuff lens plates are designed for collared, telephoto lenses and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with 1.5" RRS Dovetail Standard, our plates feature precisely contoured anti-twist flanges for a perfect fit that prevents twisting between the lens foot and our plate.
Why should you invest in a quick-release system? Because screwing your camera or lens onto a platform with standard ¼"-20 screw is tedious and insecure. Not only is it a hassle to screw your gear onto that platform, but once installed the camera or lens is free to rotate; there's nothing to prevent it from coming loose. Why invest your money in a tripod and tripod head only to compromise your shots with an insecure connection between camera and head? Instead, adopt the Really Right Stuff quick-release system.
THE FINEST MATERIALS
Really Right Stuff camera body plates are all custom designed for each camera body and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with any 1.5" standard dovetail (RRS standard) quick-release system, our plates are precisely contoured for a perfect fit that prevents twisting between the camera and our plate.
If your lens has its own rotating tripod collar, install a Really Right Stuff lens plate to its foot. Mounting the lens directing to your tripod head instead of the camera not only means your gear is better balanced on the tripod, but allows you to freely rotate the lens and camera from landscape to portrait (or any angle in between).
Some larger collared telephoto lenses have a foot that can be removed. If your lens has this option, you can choose one of our foot replacements instead of a lens plate. A replacement foot with built-in dovetail mounting will be lighter, lower in profile, more ergonomic, and provide the best possible stability for your lens.
RRS also makes replacement collars to substitute inferior collars on some collared lenses. These replacement collars eliminate the bumping and chatter experienced when rotating the lens in the roll axis. Better support and stability translates to improved results.
