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.
Thanks again for the product, Spider!
Great fix for an annoying issue.
The original Spider mount for my Z7 was great! That is until you wanted to use it with the FTZ adapter and older non-z lenses. You had to remove the plate from the camera to mount the lens and adapter. That got annoying, so I quit using the Spider system at all. The new camera plate allows me to use it without worrying about which lens or adapter combo I selected.
Holster for Nikon Z6
Fits camera nicely.
Plate works great with Nikon Z6
Plate works as advertised. If you already own the standard Spider Harness, you can just purchase the Lite plate (which goes on your camera) and it works exactly like it should.
Would like a left side plate.
Great for the right side but any chance of making a plate for the left side?
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
