Peak Design Capture v3 base plate compatibility with v2
Just bought a new PD Capture v3 and was very pleased with the size and weight reduction. Quite significant and making my old v2 model looking like a prototype design. Whilst I'm happy with the v3 model, the lower profile standard base plate that came with it could not clip into the v2. Checking PD's web site, they did specifically mention the incompatibility. Disappointed.
However, after playing around a bit, I found that by replacing the two thumb screws on the v2 model with the two bolts that are supplied with the v3 model, the v3 standard plate will then fit the v2 clip. A bit of a workaround but it works, ensuring cross compatibility b/n the two consecutive versions.
Hope this bit of info is of assistance to some. Otherwise PD's Capture really is a very nice product. Love using it.
