Hejnar Photo D027 QR Plate Compatible with Fujifilm X-T20 Update

Hejnar Photo D027 QR Plate on Fujifilm X-T20 camera

It's been a long time since Hejnar Photo has introduced the D027 Arca Style Quick Release plate. It was originally introduced in 2014 to cover the fixed lens Finepix models designated Dedicated D027 QR Plate for Fuji X100/S.

What is interesting though, is that after thorough testing it is declared directly compatible with the newer Fujifilm X-T20 which seems to share the same smaller base footprint.

It follows a simple design of a quite large square camera plate with a bidirectional Arca style dovetail. What makes it differ though, is its larger 3/8"-16 mounting screw compared to the usual 1/4"-20 size.

New Z Shape Foot for Metabones 2nd Gen Adapters from Hejnar Photo

Hejnar Photo Z shape foot w/ 4" rail for Metabones overview

Metabones® Adapters are getting more and more popular with Interchangeable Lens Compact Cameras, since users are able to use their existing lens models coming from manufacturers like Canon and Nikon, with proven high standards.

As I have mentioned in the New Feet and Extenders for Metabones Adapter from Hejnar Photo article, a couple of years ago, current Metabones adapter models do feature a tripod mounting foot, some conforming to an Arca-compatible style. However, there are still some restrictions and limitations faced when users want to combine them with larger diameter lenses, Tilt-Shift lenses  or even a Battery Grip.

Despite some minor changes the look and feel of the Hejnar family of quick release clamps has remained unaltered for the past five or six years.
Somehow, a breeze of change started with the introduction of the new F291 last month, subsequently followed by the F361 and most recently the a new F363 and F363b, with a new approach to the shape and style of Hejnar clamps.
