Markins plate for 7D
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:46:09 PM »
Hi

Does any one know if the markins plate P53U (for the 5D III) would fit a Canon 7D? at least to take a few pictures, not for a permanent solution....to ensure a minimun of support should I use a 7D as backup camera and need to use it for some tripod shots?

thanks for the help

Can't say as I don't have a 5Dlll. However, so long as the ridge on the plate that acts as an anti-rotation device extends beyond the body of the 7D, it should work. If not, there are some economical, though not ideal, solutions:

Instead of swapping plates around and risking that it does not fit, I would rather use a second plate, even if it is an inexpensive generic one. Is there a reason why you don't want to use a second plate?
