Hi all,

My EOS M will be arriving in a day or two, and I'd like to get it paired properly with a small, arca swiss compatible plate that doesn't extend way past the body (like a typical DSLR plate would on the M)

Any one out there happy with the one they are using?  I'd like to keep it semi permanently attached to the camera, so not blocking the battery door is a must.

Thanks!


Dear BL
Here is another option that fit your EOS-M need for both additional grip and  Arca-Swiss Plate---And Cheap too.

Surapon:

Do you have one of these?  Looks good because adds the grip to the Arca plate.  But it doesn't clamp in Portrait orientation, just Landscape?  Any interference when adding the adapter with foot attached?

Thanks, DPP

Dear Friend DPP.
Well, I use RRS BH-55 Ballhead, and can use this grip in Portrait Position by adjust the ball head at the side slot hole, But If I want to use the Flash L Grip holder, Yes, I must remove this add on grip + Arca plate, to make camera  flat bottom.
The Bad thing = Add the biger body to tiny EOS-M not fit in my pant pocket any more ----Ha, Ha, Ha---But the great thing = Perfected fit to big hand like you and me.

PL Filter = The Best Picture that beat Canon " L " Lenses

Dear Surapon,

Thanks.  I have the RRS BH-55 coming soon (along with new RRS legs).  And a RRS plate for the M.  Hopefully it will all arrive before I leave on vacation Monday.  I'll see how the RRS plate works, but I like the idea of the integrated grip.

Dear Friend DPP.
One thing that you need to know, If you crazy like me, who use Big " L " Lenses with EOS-M----We can  not use the Arca Swiss plate at the EOS-M body---We will damage the  bottom part of the tiny body, because the Big "L " Lens are so heavy and  might shear off/ or damage the Tiny body of EOS-M.
You need to spend  $ 5 more Dollars to buy extra Arca Swiss plate to mount on the Lens adaptor

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-X-New-50mm-Quick-Release-Plate-PU-50-For-Benro-B0-J1-N1-Arca-Swiss-Compatible-/271525605514?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f382ff08a

Yes, All of my Big " L " Lenses have the spare Arca Swiss plates and ready to roll.
Enjoy

Dear Surapon,

My Really Right Stuff package arrived today!  Included was this plate for my M:

http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/s.nl/sc.26/category.2466/.f

I think I like yours better, with the included grip.

I also ordered this Sunwayfoto plate for the M when I thought the RRS stuff was delayed:

http://www.amazon.com/SUNWAYFOTO-Plate-DP-26-Compatible-Sunway/dp/B008GN1GJM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405655180&sr=8-1&keywords=sunwayfoto+dp-26

It fits fine on the foot of the adaptor (when offset so that it clears the body of the M when taking on and off). 

I am looking forward to using longer lenses with the M, which is why I think the adapter is useful.  So far, I have only the 100-400, 70-200 f/4 and 100L.  All have rings (I bought the cheap ones for the latter two, since Canon doesn't supply for those lenses) and Sunwayfoto Arca/swiss plates. 

I don't see much of a point in using the M with shorter full size lenses, because I like the results with the 22 and 18-55.  For me, the M is either small with the M lenses or attached to something longer to play with (if for no other reason, it looks cool attached to the 100-400).  So, I probably won't get much use out of the adapter foot.

Thank you for this.  Anyone with a 1200mm mounted on an M (or the other way around)?
