Crowd-funded accessory maker Custom SLR has created a universal tripod plate that can be used with both Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss tripod heads. The M-Plate includes an off-axis mount for adding a strap that would usually use the tripod socket, so you can quickly use the camera both on and off the tripod. This makes it compatible with Custom SLR's C-Loop and Split Strap or other third-party tripod-socket strap systems.
