    Re: Options for large Arca-style QR plates?

    I use the Kessler system including the QR base. The only thing I have a problem with is that some "Arca" plates on my MF cameras slip out of the lever action Kessler base - the attachment ribs on their their "Arca" TYPE plates are spaced slightly wider than some Arca etc plates. Most screw type clamps have enough extra width capability to not have a problem, so the Kessler QR plate in a Monoball QR base etc works just fine.

    I have a couple of thin strips of shim stock that I use when putting a non Kessler plate in a Kessler clamp if need be.

    Excellent information. Thanks for your thoughts.

    I might permanently intergrate one of these onto the base of the 7x17 I hope to finish soon...

    I have one of the plates on my 8 x 10 Linhof Kardan Bi and it works very well - it's not a light camera.
