New Dedicated Arca Style QR Plate for Fuji X-T2 from Hejnar PHOTO

Hejnar D034 QR plate mounted on Fujifilm X-T2
Hejnar PHOTO has just announced availability of a Dedicated Quick Release Plate for the updated Fujifilm X-T2 Interchangeable Lens Compact mirrorless camera.

This is the Hejnar D034 Arca-Swiss® compatible QR plate, a partially revised version of the D025 which as you may recall from the relevant article it was compatible with all of the Fujifilm X-Pro, X-E1, X-E2 and X-M1 models featuring a tripod socket close to the battery compartment.

Nonetheless, Fujifilm X-T2 bottom plate has a centrally located tripod socket making the fitting for a QR plate an easier task.

The D034 QR Plate is flat with with hole instead of a slot for the 1/4"-20 screw just in the middle, since the tripod socket now lies just under the lens center. A ridge at the front, marked with the Hejnar PHOTO logo, takes care of the anti-twisting function.

The new placement of the mounting screw, now allows for two M3 safety stop screws, one at each side, instead of one at one side on the previous Fuji plates.
As usual the bottom of the plate is deeply carved in order to minimize weight.

Mounting on the Camera

The plate is designed to sit exactly under the center of the lens mount as seen in the topmost photo, While allowing clearance for the rear tilting LCD and the battery compartment.

I shall repeat once again, that all Hejnar QR plates are accompanied by two Allen Hex keys, one for the 1/4"-20 mounting screw and one thinner for the M3 safety stop screws.
