Genustech GEN-X-PLATE/1 overview

  • 1Description

Suitable for use with most DSLRs as well as larger cameras, the Genustech Gen X Plate Camera Base Plate Package 1 is an adjustable base plate with sliding QR camera plate and 15mm LWS rods. The sliding plate is Arca Swiss compatible and features over 7.8" of front to back travel with a removable camera locating pin. It comes with both a 1/4"-20 and a 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screw. The base plate QR mechanism features a safety lock that helps prevent the sliding camera plate from being accidentally released.

The base plate comes with four removable riser posts that allow you to adjust the height in two positions. Adding the riser posts adds just over eight tenths of an inch of height to your base plate; this adjustment is secure and stable without using a locking lever, which may be jarred loose. The included front rod bracket features over two inches of height adjustment using a single 1/4" screw. This adjustment combined with the riser post allows you to maintain the industry standard rod to lens height using a variety of optional cameras. The base plate's locking levers are spring-loaded, allowing you to loosen or tighten them even if you can't rotate the levers through a full 360°. Included with the baseplate is a pair of eight-inch-long 15mm rods.

The base plate includes a Swiss Arca compatible camera plate with removable locating pin, 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws, and almost eight inches of forward to back adjustment for balancing your camera
The QR release is protected from accidently being opened by a locking lever that physically engages the QR lever.
The removable front rod support bracket features approximately two inches of adjustment.

    Genustech GEN-X-PLATE/1 reviews

    Gen X Plate Camera Base Plate Package 1 is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Arca compatible at all The plate will not fit any other Arca type clamp at all, the camera fixing bolt/screw hangs lower than the bottom of the plate so no other clamp with work without hollowing/machining out a channel for the bolt head. See photo, the Gen X clamp has an empty space or gap under it with the plate installed so the bolt has room, no other Arca clamp has that space, I have several and reached to find some because I really wanted this to work. The Gen X clamp is also not compatible with brands of Arca style plates, I tried a couple generics, a Kirk, a Kessler, Zacuto and RRS.. no dice all either a loose fit that would slide or to tight to clamp the lock shut. Its built well and has a fantastic range of adjustment but because it is not Arca compatible it may as well not be QR or at best its the same as any other proprietary system I really wanted this to work, check out the stock photo with the C100 that would have been the perfect configuration for the fs5 if this was really Arca compatible... keep the camera tiny and light weight with just the plate on the bottom and click it in and out of the 15mm Gen X rod system
