Product Highlights
  • For Canon 500mm f/4 IS Lens

The Kirk LP-53 Lens Plate is designed to take the place of the original tripod collar foot of the 500mm f/4 IS lens, and to convert the collar to make it directly compatible with Arca-type quick release clamps, without the need for additional quick release plates. Critical mass is reduced, but the original Canon design is still maintained, which allows it to still be used as a carrying handle.

Each adapter comes complete with all the necessary hardware and tools to make the conversion.

Durable
Machined from 6061T6 aluminum, and anodized to an unscratchable black satin finish.
Double-Dovetail Cross-Section
Double-dovetail design allows attachment of additional accessories to the upper or lower surface of the plate.
Weight 5 oz (142g)

        Comments about Kirk LP-53 Replacement Arca-Type Quick Release Lens Plate/Foot:

        I used the allen wrench that came with the replacement foot to take off the foot on my lens and installed the replacement foot with it also. Everything lined up perfectly no problems at all. I have the hard case for the Canon 500mm f4 IS Lens, with this replacement foot the hard case closes with the foot installed. Before I always had to take the plate off the stock foot so that the hard case would close.

            • Good Stability
            • Large Range of Motion
            • Strong Clamp

              Comments about Kirk LP-53 Replacement Arca-Type Quick Release Lens Plate/Foot:

              This Arca-Type foot plate replaces the existing Canon foot of the 500mm lens. This foot plate can then be used directly with your Arca style ball head mount. By mounting this foot directly to your lens you have the strongest mount possible. The long "foot" also allows balance adjustment for use with Wimberley style gimbal systems.

                Comments about Kirk LP-53 Replacement Arca-Type Quick Release Lens Plate/Foot:

                If you want the best support for your Canon 500mm f4/L IS USM lens, then this is the answer. Lighter, smaller, and more secure than attaching a lens plate yet has all of the same features.

                  I use the replacement foot for my Canon 500/4IS. More positive connection than using a standard lens plate. Has safety stops to prevent the lens from falling out of the mount.
