The M-Plate Pro Universal Tripod Plate System (Black) from Custom SLR is a universal camera tripod plate system that has the world's first integrated Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss connections, plus modular attachment points for accessories. You can also quickly attach your camera to any tripod when using any of the most popular camera strap systems, such as C-Loop, BlackRapid, SunSniper, Spider Holster, Cotton Carrier, and many more. The ergonomic design relocates the tripod socket, making it easier to shoot portraits. The M-Plate is manufactured from aerospace-grade aluminum and has a hard anodized black finish. It's made in the USA.

Custom SLR MLTPL8 reviews

M-Plate Pro Universal Tripod Plate System (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea works well after modification I had to get this because I like to leave my camera strap on my camera when dealing with my tripods. This works well but did not fit with all my lenses, I had to modifiy the strap mount to fit two lenses I use on a regular bases.(See photo)I have access to a mill so the mod was not a big deal for me.Also the plate has to be slid all the way to one side of the adjustment slot or you can not open the battery door.Great Idea but just not executed as well as it could of been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cool product. Definately worth getting I purchased this because I had purchased the Cotton Carry-lite carrier which has this knob that screws into the bottom of your camera. Unfortunately I also have a Joby neck strap that also screws into the bottom of your camera. The two together didn't work with the Joby plate I had on, until I say the M-Plate pro which has the off set hole and 6 other holes. Now I can not only use the Cotton Carry-lite but also my Joby neck strap. the M-plate is very well made and is definitely a great purchase even at this price. It also fits your tripod without having to remove everything, I.e the Joby neck strap or the knob on the Carry-Lite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy! I realized that screwing my Spider Pro pin into the body's bottom wasn't the best position, as the camera is made front heavy with heavy glass. I figured there must be a way around this, and eventually found the M-Plate, genius product. Putting the pin that much forward balances the camera enough that I have full confidence in how it sits on my hip. I only wish there was a storage spot for the included allen wrench, so I could adjust as necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swiss Arca Z1 compatible I'm please with this. I've used the Black Rapid straps for some time, and this solves the vexing problem of having to decide between a strap and a tripod (or taking several minutes to switch back and forth). It's solidly designed, improves the balance of the camera + lens when on the strap, and it fits easily into the QR system on my Swiss Arca Z1.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have two and both are different sizes I have owned a M-Plate for over a year and love it, I can keep my camera with a mount for a carabiner, and be able to easily attach it to tripods, monopods, table mounts with quick release systems. I recently acquired a new camera body and wanted it to be as easily mountable to all the same things as my other body so I thought it would be perfect to order the same m plate, The problem is the base area that gets clamped by my lever clamp are both different thicknesses. Now I have to adjust the lever clamp everytime I switch bodies which takes the whole reason I wanted the same mounting plate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear I love the M-Plate!!!! I use it with a hand strap and a sunsniper strap very comfortable for all day shoots. Fits great on my 5D MK III

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never take it off I like using tripods and monopods and I also like to carry my 5D3 on a Rapid Strap.This fitting allows me to do both at the same time.I expected the metal to be quite thin and I was a little suspicious of it, but as soon as I had it in my hot little hands, I could see it was machined out of a substantial piece of aluminium and is very strong.I only gave it 4 stars as I can only slide it into my Acratech heads rather than placing it in and then tightening as the base is a little wider than the Acratech plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds some great Flexibiltiy and saves time I needed a quick and easy way to switch between Manfrotto and Arca Swiss mounts...this plate, though fairly expensive, is more than worth the investment considering the flexibility and time saving it provides when on a shoot. Solid construction and a secure camera connection make this product a winner in my book.
