    Quick Release Plate for Alpa SWA? Help

    What quick release plates are you guys using for your Alpa SWA. I got a job, and sadly have been very busy moving, that I had not paid attention to the fact that I can't even do a shoot. Any suggestions on a good quality quick release plate that I can use with my cube would be great.

    The RRS MPR-73? Acts as a short nodal slide as well.

    Multi-purpose rail, 73mm with 3/8"-16 screw

    These look really nice, and I would definitely go for one of these. However they work for all cameras except the swa. Not sure why they don't work with the swa

    RRS B22 ... Perfect fit.

    This is a SWA reverse foot on my FPS but it's the same as the built in foot overall.

    These new Alpa plates do not work on a Max with a stitching adapter either.

    Do you guys know why the new alpa plates won't work on an swa? They look like they should go right in.

    I'm sure that the new feet work on the latest SWA so long as you have the index holes either side of the tripod screw. That said, they seem a bit small for the size of the SWA IMHO.

    There are universal feet that do not have the posts for the index holes on the bottom of the camera. I've actually tapped your CI Sales rep, Steve Hendrix, to follow up with you, but feel free to email me with any questions about the ALPA Quickfix adapter plate, either the Universal/Small or the Universal/Large.
