About this Guide

The charts above list the lens plate and additional hardware(if necessary) that we recommend for some of the most common collared lenses. If your lens is not on the list, please contact us and we will be happy to help you find the proper plate. A lens not listed has not been tested.

We try to suggest a plate that will work for all scenarios, but this is not always possible. The balance point of the lens/camera combination is affected by the weight of the camera body and other accessories attached to the lens and each set up is different.

The plates that we recommend should be long enough to:

   1.) Properly balance the lens when using our gimbal heads

   2.) Allow room to attach a flash bracket to the plate.
  In some cases, this means that the plate is significantly longer than the foot of the lens.

NOTE: Other manufacturers' plates may not be long enough or dimensionally compatible in order to properly balance your setup. Check the length of the recommended plate in our charts for comparison. If your particular setup does not balance properly using our suggested plate, please contact us right away so that we can help you find a more suitable plate.
