The Merlin Accessory Plate is designed to support wireless microphones, video feeds, external hard drives and other devices under 1.5 lbs.
Light weight devices that weigh 1.5 lbs or less can be attached to the Merlin Accessory Plate. The device is attached by a strip of Velcro that is supplied with the plate. Video feeds to an external hard drive is attached by a fire wire output from the camera to the hard drive below. If additional weights are needed you can attach them to the end of the lower spar and then attach the plate to the end of the weight.
The Merlin Accessory Plate will hold multiple accessories at the same time. Using the strips of touch-fastener provided with your Accessory Plate you can attach accessories to the bottom. This allows you to use additional equipment without adding any additional weight to the Merlin.
