The Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters fits around a Novoflex lens adapter for Sony NEX cameras, in order to provide support for a heavy lens & adapter as they're attached to a relatively tiny Sony NEX series camera body. Novoflex offers a variety of lens adapters for the mirrorless NEX series cameras, for Pentax, Canon, Leica, T2-mount, and many more lens types.

The tripod collar features both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads for attaching to a tripod head, and the Arca-compatible bottom allows the collar to be clamped securely by most Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release mechanisms.

The collar features a textured knob for tightening the ring around the lens adapter. To execute quick changes between horizontal and vertical orientation, just loosen the knob and rotate the NEX adapter & camera body – the adapter is able to turn a full 360° within the collar.

Head Attachment Fitting 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, Arca-style dovetail
Rotation 360°

    Comments about Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters:

    I bought this as a add-on for my Novoflex adapters. Simply put it definitely is highly recommended for shooting with longer lenses or off tripod. The foot allows you to attach any standard threaded QR plate and the attachment screw is easy to operate with or without gloves on. One tip I can recommend is to reverse the way it screws in so it operates from the top and doesn't obstruct the lens release button on the body.

        Comments about Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters:

        I have a RRS clamp, and the Novoflex, though ARCA, does not fit in the clamp. The Novoflex is too narrow, so that it slides easily out of the clamp, when it is not supposed to.
        It is my understanding that this is an issue with the specific pair (Novoflex ASTAT and RRS clamp).
        I ended up using a generic ARCA plate to connect the ASTAT, and having the generic plate onto the clamp.
        Also, one needs to be patient and careful when attaching the Novoflex to the lens adapter...
        The product itself is well made.

            Comments about Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters:

            I am using a Leica R tele lens (Apo 180mm f3.4) on my Nex7 using a Novoflex adapter. This combo gives me great resolution but (except for full sun) a tripod or mono pod is required to take advantage of the optical quality. The tripod mount on the camera works only with small and light lenses but otherwise is useless as it flexes too much. This tripod mount is attached on the the lens adapter and allows to rotate the camera. It very well made and has 1/4 & 3/8 thread and arcs swiss size dovetail plate in 2 directions.
            I only wish the clamp nut would be on the other side that there is more space at the camera grip.

              Comments about Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters:

              This device allows you to mount an adapted lens to the tripod without using the rather weak NEX tripod socket, placing the tripod closer to the center of gravity of the camera+lens. Some cheap adapters have tripod mounts, but they do not rotate, and some are weakly attached with skinny scews. The Novoflex mount rotates to any orientation and fits all their adapters, so if you have more than one adapter, you only need one mount. It can be easily removed when you don't need it, unlike tripod mounts on other adapters. It has an integral Arca-Swiss foot which fits both longitudinal and sideways clamps, so you don't need to buy an A-S plate, saving money and weight. A rotating mount allows you to keep the camera over the center of the tripod without flopping it off to the side for verticals; until I got this gadget, I only had that advantage with some long tele lenses which come with tripod mounts.

              I have a couple of Novoflex adapters, and their quality is superb. They fit the NEX camera smoothly with no play, unlike even the Sony lenses, which have some play when mounted on the camera. If you have high-quality lenses like Leica, Zeiss, or pro-grade Nikon, Canon, etc., you really should consider the Novoflex system.

                Comments about Novoflex ASTAT-NEX Tripod Collar for Sony NEX Lens Adapters:

                I use this collar with some heavy Nikon glass with a Novoflex adapter. The bias of the foot to one side helps compensate for the natural unbalance with the NEX-7 attached. The handy screw (mounted upside down from the shown image) is perfect and quickly allows position change from horizontal to vertical perspective.

                    Very nice design and worth every penny: don't bend the lens mount on your Sony NEX by leveraging a too-heavy lens off its lens mount on a tripod.
