Will it fit Nikon as well as Canon?
Yes, but our current design does not work with the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR II lens tripod foot.
Do I need to do regular maintinance?
The SpiderPro Lens Collar Plate
It took a bit of time to adjust the belt properly but it seems pretty sturdy. After attaching my camera to the belt it still seemed a bit cumbersome to unlock. I’m sure with practice it will get easier. I was hoping it would not feel like my pants are being pulled down but I will keep wearing it and see if it feels more comfortable. It seems well made. I will keep using it.
Being able to secure my camera on my waist while I’m moving light stands around has been able to save me tons of time while I’m shooting. 🙌🏼
This plate kept my long lens from banging into my leg as I was walking. Great solution!
If you use a tripod and also like carrying your camera in the holster system then this is the best of both worlds.
If you are using Arca Swiss mount, you are good. I use Manfrotto and have to utilize adapters which is a real pain. This mount needs threaded holes or even better would be to offer a Manfrotto version.
The improved pin design features a more secure connection to the plate and can be moved for optimal carry on the right or left side. For tripod use the Lens Collar Plate features an Arca-Swiss style tripod profile, while anti-slip rubber grips and anti-rotation features keep the plate aligned with the lens.
