I have the one for the EM1, it feels & looks like a part of the camera. I never take it off.

You can also get an end plate to allow vertical pics.

Someone else answered you, but it is worth mentioning that you mean "plate" or "bracket" ... the clamp is the part that sits on top of the ball head (or rails or whatever you mount the camera to) and "clamps" the plate securely.

I own several aftermarket clamps so I can mount cameras to all sorts of apparatus ... in fact, as the result of looking for an image of a clamp, I just bought a new one from eBay for 12 bucks ... I'll be curious to see whether it is any good ...

I am corrected   I meant plate, not clamp.

I got one of these from China, strong and safe , much cheaper than RRS

Re: L clamp + optional grip

I have the optional grip on the EM10

Not sure it 'd work with the RRS grip

it works fine with the L grip from China, granted it's not as good looking , but functional

Cheers,

RSS says it does't, although it's referenced as 'battery grip'.

I agree.  RRS plates are not super duper ineexpensive but are designed with care in mind for the camera.  Not too much superfluous metal and strong Arca Swiss dovetails. Also don't ingnore that the plates which fit snugly under the basic camera have spaces for getting at the battery chamber and have a threaded screw in the lens center which is not so on my E-1 itself....thoughtfulof them.  Also has a spare 1/4 thread for a sling strap for these small cameras.  As to the L portion adapter.....I may not buy it.  I like the little sitting stability the base plate adds to the camera without adding just a smidgin of weight.....AND if you don't like it, send it back within 30days///   made in the USA if that is of some import to you.....enjoy!  Costly camera deserves solid accessories IMO....gs
