Hello everyone!


I had a quick question for everyone and hopefully somebody could help me. I am looking for some kind of weight plate I can throw underneath my camera and weighten down my rig substantially.

I bought a 15lb weight plate with a 6.5lb plate together with 4 connector rods to essentially make a weight practice cage. Dovetail attaches directly to the plate and I found out about it right here on the forums. Contact Janice Arthur. I also had mine powder coated since I live at the beach and rust prevails.

Hi Charly - yes contact Janice Arthur, her plates are great.


They come in 2, 6.5, 11, and 15 pound configs. 


If you happen to need a light plate, I have a spare 2 pounder that I haven't used in ages. Pretty much always use the 6.5 and 11 on my rig.
