Hey guys, 

 

I'm looking to buy a steadicam Alexa plate to mount it directly to my zephyr but most companies told me that they made the plates for the "steadicam ultra" sled size. I want to see if anybody knows if the zephyr and the ultra have the same dovetail plate size, if not which plate do you advise for the zephyr?

Many Thanks.

Yeah, Zephyr plate is the same width as Archer plate. Another option is this: http://cam-jam.de/alexa.html  Very light, very rigid, low-profile. Takes advantage of your existing Zephyr dovetail. Also works with ENG cameras. You give up the quick-release function.
