    mounting manfrotto QR plate (030) to SINAR

    Need help on this:
    The radius of the base/clamp of my Sinar F is about the same as the 'radius' of the manfrotto QR plate. (see pictures). So I can't mount the QR plate very solid to the Sinar. What am I doing/is wrong here??

    (it looks like the manfrotto overlaps the outer ring of the Sinar quit good, but that is only half a milimeter, and not a solid connection)

    Aluminum plate between head & camera.
    You may need a longer screw, 3/8-16 flathead, common in hardware stores

    Sinar intended that camera to be used with a tripod head they made. They are nice but fairly rare and not too cheap. John's solution is most simple and cost effective.
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Thanks all, I will drill/cut a sheet of metal to place in between and search for a longer screw

    I recently picked up an F myself, I got a 3/8 hex plate and fits nicely.
