    quick release plate for Chamonix 4x5

    From the EMS website it looks like my rig is clearing customs in San Francisco. Thought I might get a jump on things and order a quick release plate. Have any of you Chamonix owners installed Really Right Stuff quick release plates? Looks like the B29 or the MPR-1 will work. From the pictures over at Jack's website it look a B29.

    Thoughts or opinions?

    Scott,

    I can't help with the RRS plate. I am glad to hear that there will be a Chamonix right here in Texas. Please keep the rest of us Texan 4x5 users informed of your experience with the Chamonix.

    For what it's worth, I'm using a RSS B35 plate on my Speed Graphic.

    So there must be at least a state with no Chamonix cameras

    You mean, besides the state of despair?

    Scott, I plan to try out the B35 as soon as my 45N-1 arrives - I'll report back...

    I just installed a Kirk Enterprises PZ-36 on mine -- when I originally ordered it I asked them to install an extra screw and include a 1/4" bushing.

    Works great.

    One of each -- particularly nice for the QR plates, no twisting.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm going to try the B29 and will report back with pics once installed.

    Glad to see other Texans roaming around here!
