The Really Right Stuff BOEM5III camera body plates are the premiere solution for mounting your Olympus E-M5 Mk III camera securely to your tripod. Our BOEM5III plates are custom designed and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with 1.5" RRS Dovetail Standard, this plate features precisely contoured edges for a perfect fit with no twisting between the camera and our plate. It utilizes a custom machined 1/4"-20 threaded, captive-style mounting screw that threads into the tripod mounting socket of your camera body. An integrated QD (Quick Detach) socket on the base plate provides quick attaching and detaching of your QD strap system. The additional 1/4"-20 accessory socket gives users the flexibility to attach other devices and products as needed.
This plate design utilizes an anti-twist pin to ensure a positive connection between the body and the plate. The full wrap-around design adds additional 0.370" (9.4mm) of height to the hand grip and gives a comfortable place to rest your fifth finger. There is an integrated strap lug for use with the hand straps which has been redesigned to minimize fraying of straps during long-term use. The battery compartment remains fully accessible without having to remove the base plate.
Note: Due to the close proximity of the flip-out screen and the accessory ports, it is not possible to fit a dovetail that allows both the screen to flipped out completely and the ports unobstructed. The RRS solution is a dual-position L-Plate that allows the user to choose between port access or screen articulation. The included 5/32" hex key makes the position change painless and fast. When the L-Plate is installed in the forward position, the screen can be folded completely open in "selfie" mode and the mic port is unobstructed for vlogging use. When the L-Plate is installed in the rearward position, the screen can be folded open a max of 120 degrees but all ports remain accessible. To open the lower HDMI/USB port door, open the doors above it first using the top edge of the doors. Because of the wide variety of cables available on the market, tethering in portrait orientation with USB, HDMI, and audio cables may require the use of the optional RRS CRS.
