Smallrig 2947 L-plate for Z5/6/7
« on: September 18, 2020, 22:32:12 »
I've bought a SmallRig 2947 L-plate for my Z6.





This L-plate offers horizontal and vertical Arca-Swiss connections and - more important for me - adds height which imo offers a better grip esp. with heavier lenses due to additional room for the pink.
See the images below, also visible (in the upper image) is the very smart integrated magnetic tool which is used to mount/unmount the grip on the camera.

Same here. Gives a very nice size to the grip. I also have the Gabale which is not as high for lighter lenses.
Smallrig seem to have updated this piece. Mine has a hex key that is held by a magnet, no fancy tool.

I guess you have the - slightly larger and heavier - 2258 version, that one has the hex key.



And the connection for the FTZ adapter.

You're welcome Simone. I should have included that info in the opening post ;)

I have the one with the extension for the adapter as well, well made a bit of handling though, changing lenses mounting on tripod and beware of not losing the screws.
