Product Highlights
  • For Larger Telephotos (Up to 600mm f/4)

The Jobu Design NX4 Surefoot Lensplate (7") is designed to safely mount and secure larger telephotos, such as a 400 mm f/2.8, 500mm f/4, 600mm f/4 and other similar lenses, to your tripod. It features 3 mounting screws for achieving multiple fit options on larger lenses, a double-dovetail profile (for using quick release flash brackets) and it's compatible with all other North American Arca-Swiss-style lensplates. This plate is functionally identical to the NX3 5.5" plate, but is quite long, enabling terrific balance adjusment.

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 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)
3 mounting screws for achieving multiple fit options on larger lenses are included--two 1/4"-20 captive screws, one centrally located 3/8"-16 captive screw
Hard-anodized black finish
Compatible with all Arca-Swiss-style clamps

          Comments about Jobu Design NX4 Surefoot Lensplate (7"):

          7" plate is perfect for my Zeiss 85T*Fl Diascope on the Jobu Jr. 3 gimbal head. I'm able to balance the scope perfectly with it, and even when it does tilt forward the front of the plate acts as a stop. The rear screw tightens agains the rubber base of the scope to prevent any side-to-side motion. Very happy with this purchase!

              I use this to mount a monster Sigma 120-300 zoom on my Jobu pro and it is perfect. The extra length allows me to position the lens/camera so that it floats perfectly in the middle. There are no cons for this device, it is like a perfect key to a lock.

              Cons

              Comments about Jobu Design NX4 Surefoot Lensplate (7"):

              I needed a lens plate that would enable me to use a flash bracket in conjunction with a gimbal tripod mount. It is light weight and adequate but not as strong as another lens plate I have used before.
