How much is the load capacity?
Asked by: Amir V.
We use this particular 12 Baby plate for our Arri 300 & 150 fresnel lights without any problem. The weight on the 300 is approx. 4 lbs. and it seems to work fine!We have the smaller plate and it works well also on heavier softbox lights because of the low height. I think if using longer screws to a applebox-type of base with a possible weight bag, you should have no problem.
