    Options for large Arca-style QR plates?

    Iíve been looking for a non-destructive option for an Arca fit Quick Telease plate for a big camera (7x17Ē).

    The best that I can find is a Sunwayfoto DP-813, being 120x80mm

    Is there a bigger option out there? I know that Ben Horne uses an x-plate; however, I donít really want to drill/screw a plate on.

    Even a 100x100mm plate, or a 100mm circular plate would work given the stability that heads such as the RRS BH-55 offer.

    Thanks.
    Lachlan.

    Novoflex has a wide selection up to 450mm long.

    Thanks, Bob.

    With the proliferation of DSLR mounts, it’s hard to sort the wheat from the chaff.

    Starting points help.

    Check out Hejnar. I also believe he'll do custom plates, if needed.

    I’ve sent him a message asking for info on something like a 125x125mm Arca plate.

    I don't know if Kirk Enterprises still makes the plate I have, but it's something like 4" square with Arca on bottom.

    I use Kessler Crane XL plate on all cameras. DSLR to 11X14.

    With the matching base. Never had an Arca, but this USA made object is supposed to match.

    Thanks, Randy.

    That might do the job. I’ll have a look later on something bigger than my iPhone.
