    New NEX cold shoe adapter and L Bracket

    Hi,

    Just wanted post pictures of a new product(s) that Arca sent me to try out. I think it is coming out in September. Don't worry I'm not working for Arca - I've deposited quite a few paychecks to them on my tech camera etc. They just knew that I shot with the NEX

    Frist up cold shoe adapter. Screws into the port.





    Now the L bracket. Solid as a rock. Caveat....this works with the Arca slidefix system. I've moved a bunch of stuff over to slide fix because I like the very small plate size for these small cameras. You can see how small these plates are in relation to the size of the camera. I have it mounted on the P0 head that I've been using for a bit more than a year now. Also works with their regular clamp shown at the bottom.

    Cool Terry, I wonder if that will fit on my Acratech ballhead.

    Not in a "normal" sided Arca style clamp. This is smaller from the slidefix system. I will post links to slidefix when I get home later but you can go to B&H and just type in Arca slidefix and you will see.

    It's either cool or funny that Arca still haven't got a WWW homesite... Terry, what slidefix plate do you recommend for a Nex? And where can one get that L bracket?

    regards,

    /Jonas

    JTec also makes a cold shoe and L bracket, if the Arca doesn't fit your system:

    Not sure when the Arca will be around.

    This is my P0 head and it comes with the slide fix clamp
    Right now I can't find a link the the clamp shown as the last picture in the first post

    OK. I'll wait for a Nex-7 anyway if the rumour site is at least half right about that model.

    Thank you for the appetizers!
