    Best RRS Plate for Panasonic G3

    Picked up a G3 for lightweight travel use but I didn't find a dedicated RRS plate listed. What's the best RRS or Arca alternative or recommendation?

    Thanks!

    I used a PnS (point and shoot) plate on my GF2. http://reallyrightstuff.com/ProductD...r-Slim-Cameras

    Steve,

    I'm using one of these at the moment but it's just a little too slim for my liking and so doesn't provide enough girth for a good hold on the tripod head (I swapped it out on my Alpa too). I was wondering if the G1 plate would work as it looks a little beefier. I'll give it a whirl I think.

    I use one of the small multipurpose rails on my GF1 and GH2.

    It fits very well on the GH2, and allows me to fully open the battery compartment. Might be a little large and bulky on a G3.

    Hmm. I actually have a spare one of those that I was using on my X100 before I got the RRS bracket. It would be a little long but I didn't try it to see if the the battery compartment would be blocked. Have you used it with the anti-twist bar on the front?
