Jobu Design NX2 Surefoot Lensplate (4.5")

B&H # JOSFNX2 Mfr # SF-NX2
You Pay: $49.95
Product Highlights
  • For Small Telephotos (Up to 400mm f/5.6)
  • Built-In Anti-Twist Flange

The Jobu Design NX2 Surefoot Lensplate (4.5") is designed to safely mount and secure most small telephotos, such as a 300 mm F/4, 70-200 F/2.8 or F/4, 400 F/5.6, 300mm F/2.8 and other similar lenses, to your tripod. It features double safety-stops and a double-dovetail profile (for using quick release flash brackets), and it's compatible with all other North American Arca-Swiss-style lensplates. It also has a built-in anti-twist flange to prevent your lens from unscrewing during use. This lensplate is similar to the NX1, but offers an additional 1" of room for longer lens-feet, or for mounting accessories, or for more balance adjustment.

Pick a plate that is 1" longer than the mounting-foot on your lens to allow enough room for a flash bracket with quick release to be added. Most small lenses use 1 mounting screw. Most medium to large lenses use 2 or more mounting screws.

Double-dovetail design enables use of our Quick Release flash brackets (requires 3/4" of lensplate exposed past your lens foot)
Curved hard-stop prevents rotation of lenses
One 1/4"-20 captive screw, two safety-screws, and 5/32" and 3/32" Allen keys are included
Hard-anodized black finish
Compatible with all Arca-Swiss-style clamps
Jobu Design NX2 Surefoot Lensplate (4.5")
  • 1/4"-20 Captive Screw
  • 2 x Safety Screws
  • 5/32" and 3/32" Allen Keys
  • 1-Year Limited Warranty

      Bought the jobu jr 3 gimbelhead a few weeks ago. Didn't know it wouldn't work on my canon 70-200. So i purchased this foot to make it work. Now i have room to add a flash attachment. Works great. Only issue is the cost alittle high!

        Simple to attach and provides lock tight securement for using lens attachment to the gimbal head. Easy to remove as well. Excellent choice to protect your lens!

          Comments about Jobu Design NX2 Surefoot Lensplate (4.5"):

          I use the mount on a cannon 70-200 f/2.8, which is attached o a cannon 40D w/battery pack. The mount was easy to install and holds camera firmly on the ball head. One thing I would suggest is to balance the camera/lens unit prior to using to save time. I put a pencil on the dining table and set the lensplate on it. When I get the approximate balance point I used small piece of tape to mark the spot. This makes mounting the camera fast.

            Well made plate that is long enough to balance a Canon 7D with battery grip - and the Canon 300mm f 2.8 IS lens with or without a 1.4X teleconverter.

                Last year I put my Sigma 150-500 on a 488RC2 ball head to capture BIF. Yikes! This Jobu Gimbal 3 head handles my lens with ease. Once it is balanced it is so easy and smooth to change orientation and it just sticks there. Very sturdy and easy access to the lens and head controls. Glad I put the 4.5 Surefoot Lensplate on my lens as well.

                  Comments about Jobu Design NX2 Surefoot Lensplate (4.5"):

                  The lens plate is very well built. I've owned some going from the top of the line Wimberley ones to the cheap Chinese copies. I would put the Surefoot more on the Wimberley side. The cut of the material is clean and it's not a low quality aluminum like the one used on the Chinese copies, that make the lens plate pretty light compared to others.
                  A must have for any telephoto lens that has a foot on it.
