Finally the spider plate we need for the Nikon Z cameras!
I LOVE the spider light QR plates and use them on my Nikon D850s! (Have to grind down the stops, not supposed to but I prefer these plates to the bulky ones.)
When I bought a Nikon Z6 I had to further modify a regular Spider light plate but it still didn't fit quite well and pushed up against the FTZ adapter in a way I didn't like.
I was overjoyed to find out a special update of this awesome plate was made just for the Z cameras and man the difference is really noticeable. Well, unless you haven't tried the old version on a Nikon Z, in which case it will just plain work and be amazeballs.
Seriously, if you own a Nikon Z camera get this plate. Women and men will swoon in your path, babies will coo and dogs and cats will proclaim you the best photographer they've ever met. And you will take the best squirrel photos ever, guaranteed! *Not a guarantee*
I had to make sure that the plate fit so that i could change the lens with the FTZ adaptor. It worked,but I couldnt be bothered walking with my wife and shooting so I did not use it with my belt. Some day soon.
Seems of cheaper quality than the non Z plates, but still.....
.....seems like a good product. My only complaint was that one of the black Philips head screws wouldn't come out. The threads were stripped because screw just kept turning. Had to pull out with pliers. Lines up better now.
Good product. Quick delivery.
It's the perfect bracket for the Nikon z6. The delivery was very fast and good. I like this. I trust Spider Company.
Great Addition Overall
I've been using the Spider system for a while and it's been great. When I got a Nikon Z6 I needed a new plate that would fit the body correctly, and was happy to see this little Z Plate become available right at the perfect time. Overall, I'm very happy to have this as it fits in with my existing setup.
The only small gripes I have about the plate:
- It doesn't come with a "Left" pin like the original plates, so I have to have it hung from the right-side holster.
- It does not include an allen-wrench slot like the previous models. Granted, they did add in a little pull up knob to screw it on tighter with your fingers. You'll just have to remember to take an allen wrench with you if you want to ensure you'll get it on tight.
The SpiderLight Z Plate was updated to seamlessly pair with all Nikon Z series cameras, with all lens configurations, (With and without the FTZ Adapter).
Adaptable to your setup!
The SpiderLight Plate’s mount can move left to right to fit your camera and allow you to maintain use of your battery door, and will not interfere when using an FTZ Adapter.
Built in Arca-Swiss style tripod feature!
The SpiderLight Plate has built in Arca-Swiss Geometry which allows it to mount to any of their tripod heads!
The plate also has a universal 1/4″-20 thread mount which will work with any regular tripod mount!
Note: SpiderLight Plate is NOT compatible with Olympus Mark II, and Panasonic DMC-G80/G85
