One of these is the PS-N5 specific plate for SONY NEX-5, a bidirectional QR camera plate with a minimal weight of 27 gr and a choice between three colors.
|Dovetail Width:||39 mm|
|Mounting screw thread:||1/4"-20 UNC|
|Color:||Black / Red / Yellow|
|Sunwayfoto PS-N5 is a minimal structure adding only 27gr to the camera, following the bottom curves of the NEX-5 camera body thus making it product specific.|
|Looking at the QR plate from the back we can see clearly the two small convex edges that act as stoppers against the front panel of the camera in order to avoid any twisting.|
|A side view makes clear the 1/4"-20 mounting screw slot, which permits a small fore-aft adjustment, facilitating in this way the mounting of the QR plate at the bottom of the camera body.|
|The bottom dovetail is square 39 x 39 mm, which permits the bidirectional mounting of the camera on an Arca-Swiss® compatible Quick Release Clamp.|
Mounting the plate on the Camera
|Sunwayfoto PS-N5 fits perfectly on the bump under the lens mount.|
The square shape of the dovetail extends slightly at the back without becoming an obstacle to the tilting LCD screen.
|With small lenses the plate's flat bottom surface can serve as a stand for the camera on its own.|
|PS-N5 is the first of Sunwayfoto products that besides the usual satin black color comes with a choice between two more colors to match different camera body colors. Red on the left and Yellow (which I'd rather describe as golden) on the right.|
|The choice of the Yellow (golden) color, in the closeup illustrations above, offers the proper contrast with the camera body in order to show the immaculate fitting of the QR plate.|
I hope you found the article useful, thank you for viewing.
