But unless I am missing something, looking at the images (Manfrotto don't tend to describe their products very well anyway), I don't see the mechanism that prevents those plates twisting under the camera body.

This picture should show the "mechanism"

Manfrotto non-twist plate on a Pentax K20D

It might not be compatible with cameras that have articulated displays or curved shapes.

Hi, could you please do me a BIG favour? Could you please give me the measurement, from screw to lip, of the MAXIMUM that this anti-twist Manfrotto plate can be extended to (I need to know if the plate can extend far enough for one of my cams which is thicker than usual).

I have been looking high and low, and can't find the details (and as usual Manfrotto's website is useless (images of products in isolation (i.e. not shown in-situ) and no useful tech data)).

Thanks in advance.
