The Base Plate for Sony Alpha a9 and a7R III from Really Right Stuff is designed with anti-twist flanges to keep the mounted camera from twisting. Once the dovetail plate is on, quick release functionality has been added to the camera. Also, this base plate is compatible with all Really Right Stuff clamps and most other Arca-type heads.

The CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum plate maintains complete access to the battery door without obstructing the tilting LCD monitor of the camera, and an option for an L-component is available that will fit the plate's modular design and make a custom-fit L-plate.

This plate has been Type II black anodized, which makes it resistant to scuffs and scratches. Furthermore, the base plate has a laser-engraved center mark on the back to align it on a head.

    Base Plate for Sony Alpha a9 and a7R III is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is the first RRS plate that made me disappointed I've been using RRS plates for many years for my Nikon, Canon, Fuji and Pentax cameras. Recently I bought a Sony A7r III. Without hesitation, I ordered this plate even there are other cheaper alternatives available. I got it today and I am a little bit disappointed. After installed it to the camera, I could not open the battery door! I tried to shift the plate a bit and it did not work. I have to take it out to be able to remove the battery. I am going to Banff national park in Canada next week and I can't imagine that I have to remove the plate first and then change the battery. I guess it might be a time to consider other alternatives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a Grip - a7RIII Required Acessory I love the Sony a series small form factor. Sony considers the compact size a top priority because they managed to cram a lot more function into the a7RIII with only an ever so slightly larger that a7RII body. That said if you want to mount any lens larger than the small primes you will need a bigger grip.� The RRS plate mates perfectly and provides a solid tripod mount, provides protection for the bottom of the camera and enables me to shoot one handed (if necessary) even with the chunky 24-105mm. I had one on my a7RII as well and for me, the RRS plate is a required accessory.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an A+++ plate I love this plate the moment I install it on my Sony A7RIII. It fit like a glove, and add a bit of depth to the grip which fits my hand perfectly. Great attention to details. Love it... There are a couple of buyers giving this a negative review, simply because they did not know how to install it and did not read the instruction. These buyers said the battery door cannot open and need to remove the plate to remove the battery. This is a mistake that is the buyers. 1) You need to remove the battery door from the camera. 2) You then install the battery door on the plate with the two little holes, it fit perfectly. 3) Then you install the plate... Now You can install and remove the battery with ease.. This is an awesome design and I love it...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical RRS...Excellent I bought this to provide a truly solid tripod mount for my A7Riii. It works well. The additional benefit is that it provides a bit of room that give one a much better grip on this small camera. One needs to remove the battery cover from the camera and install it on the base. This process takes seconds and the base never needs to be removed. Ease of access to the battery is unchanged. I have never had an RRS part that I did not think was excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For those who complained about blocked battery door... Please refer to the installation manual. The battery door is supposed to be removed from the body and then attached to the base plate. IMO this is a brilliant solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from read the instruction before reviewing I'm still waiting for my bracket but I've been to RRS's web site and it is very clear one much remove the battery cover and attach it to the bracket.� Their site makes it look very simple.� You can also see on their site that there is a weather gasket built into the bracket. I bought a $27 A9 bracket on ebay, from China and it is junk, the vertical bracket sits far forward on the body and blocks the� port panel. If you look at the RRS site and the photos of the bracket you will see/realize they put some serious engineering into this bracket; hence the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Addition to A7RIII As is with other RRS products, the quality is excellent and looks great. Unlike other models, you need to take the battery compartment lid off of the camera body and onto the plate. It fits perfectly and not only does it give easy and secure attachment to Arca Swiss type quick release mounts, it also gives the bottom of the camera protection from banging around and shallow pooled water.� And the added thickness makes holding the camera a little more comfortable when using one of the longer lenses.� I hardly ever use my camera in portrait orientation on a tripod, so the additional "L" portion is unnecessary for me, and it is much less in cost than the whole "L" bracket setup.� Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Awesome! This product solves several issues for me.� 1) A place to rest the pinky on the A7R III. It gives it just that tad bit more depth for a much more comfortable fit.� 2) Unlike the Sony Pinky Grip this base plate also allows connection to my Black Rapid and HOLDFAST Money Maker straps!� 3) There is a 1/4'' 20 hole on the bottom if you want to go that route but I'm more excited about the QD attachment point at the far end. The QD attachment protocol is used primarily by the military and gun enthusiasts for a secure yet quick release strap connection to rifles and the like. The Holdfast Money Maker is a royal pain in the butt to reconnect back to camera. Using a QD Swivel attached to the Money Maker securing and releasing the camera is a breeze. The connection is very secure. To test I stood on top of my bed with my A7R III and did a very aggressive bouncing of the Money Maker/QD Swivel/RRS Base Plate combo for 15 min with no hint of disconnecting.� 4) The battery door is moved from the body of the camera and then attached to the RRS Base Plate. In my opinion the RRS battery door attachment is much better weather sealed than the actual camera. Inserting and removing the Sony battery requires a different angle of insertion but after a few times of doing not difficult art all.
