Yes, I know their existence, but if you compare the weight and bulk of it, a collar will be better.

So to be able to be a better replacement at a lower cost, that was what I had devised for my own use. The Long QR Plate with clamp was made for this purpose.

Secondly, if you imagine mounting a shorter lens, the camera will be more to the front, and the rear part of the long double sided QR Plate can be a hinderance is you want to view thru the EVF. It might be poking at your face or neck.

SO I did review this and several others, some even have a strap to hold down the lens.

Thank you for reminding me, the ball is in your court, do google for my options, and if your wanted more questions from me, do feel free to post on this thread, I will be attentive to questions. Cheers.

I have another thread with even clearer explanation please do take a look.
