I bought this for my DVX200 but I cannot tighten the dovetail plate because when I go to twist to tighten, I hit the bottom of the camera and cannot tighten. Is there another way to attach the plate so I can spin the knob and not hit the bottom of the camera?
Asked by: Ashley
You should be able to adjust the knob and put it in to a position that it will take less than a 180 degree turn to both tighten and loosen the plate while not hitting the camcorder. In many cases the screw will also be able to ratchet, meaning you can pull it out and away from the camera to put it in the position you need. If you need further assistance with this feel free to email us at [email protected].
