PX6 6-inch Arca Camera Plate with QR Strap Port
The ProMediaGear PX6 6-inch Arca-Swiss Double Dovetail plate is made of T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum that is lightweight and durable. It has adjustable safety stops for any telephoto lens.
When I first ordered and received my first of 2 QD plates, I have to say it was excellent, I much prefer carrying my camera and lens this way.
However, I have now had 2 plates that I use with a Kirk QD clip and they have both failed. I can guarantee that it is the plate and not the clip.
the QD port that sits in a hole moved over time on both plates (less than 12 month wear). firstly, I simply can not get my head around why the QD port would ne smaller than the hole it sits in (it is not flush at both top and bottom). In both instances, the port shifted down, which meant the QD clip ball bearings could not engage. PromeadiaGear Customer Service were good, offering to fix it if I sent it back, however living in the UK, its a long winded wait.
My solution was to tap the port back into place with a small hammer, I then placed a small metal washer in the 1-2 mm recess and then re-attached the plate to my lens foot.
This seems to resolve the issue and hopefully will stop the issue happening again.
Would I recommend the QD plate from ProMediaGear ? ... Yes I would, but PMG, make the port to the same dimensions of the hole in which it sits.
Unfortunately, I never realised what the issue was with my first plate and binned it ... its quite an easy fix.

Wonderful workmanship and functionality.
High quality arca rail-style plate. Permanently mounted to my Nixon Z 400 f4.5 lens foot.
Easy and secure method to mount camera/lens to Promedia Katana Gimbal.
Like the numerical markings along the rail’s edge as well as the SS2 strap port.
