Novoflex Q=Base and RRS plates

Discussion in 'Accessories' started by salvatore.mele, May 4, 2003.

  1. Did anybody try RRS plates onto the new Novoflex Q=Base?
    - Would the stop pin at the end of the RRS plates work?
    - Or would it rather be in the way? The clamp of the Novoflex
    system seems to be in the inner 1/2 of the full plate surface.

    I am purchasing a Mini Magic Ball (when climbing every gram counts)
    and attaching the RRS quick release sistem with no twist onto it will
    require me some (permanent) drilling/gluing/bricolage that I'd rather
    not do.

    The solution seems to be the `native` Novoflex Q=Base to go
    on the Mini Magic Ball and the RRS superb products for the
    cameras/lenses. Novoflex tells me the Mini Magic Ball and Novoflex
    Q=Base has some native anti-twist pin.

    BTW did anyone try this combo out?

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers.
     
  2. I was intrigued and went to novoflex.de. There are Novoflex Q-plates of differing dimensions, even an L bracket to go with the Q-base. maybe one should stay within one system ... RRS etc is wonderful, these look a little bit lighter and cost less. Best to see first hand, though, as always ...
