Hejnar H110 Replacement Foot for Canon
Hejnar PHOTO has been engaged in the manufacture of Arca-Swiss® dovetail compatible telephoto lens collar replacement feet for many years now, but mostly for Nikon® telephoto lenses.

This is the first time they release a replacement foot for Canon and especially for the longer and heavier EF 400mm f2.8 L IS USM, EF 500mm f4.0L IS USM, EF 600mm f4.0 L IS USM and EF 800 f5.6 L IS USM.

It can also be used on the top Canon zoom EF 200-400mm f4.0L IS USM Ext 1.4X which shares the same collar foot.

The H110 Replacement Foot is designed out of a solid Aluminium block with a curved and textured non-slipping top in order to facilitate carrying the heavy Canon lenses. However, the front part remains flat with a double dovetail in order to possibly accommodate a flash bracket or any Arca compatible apparatus. The collar mounting block is almost solid for better vibration absorption.

The bottom of the foot is deeply carved with only a central brace, where two tapped holes lay side by side for direct mount on a monopod. One hole is threaded 1/4"-20 and the other 3/8"-16. Further, two M3 safety stop screws exist at both ends of the foot.

The replacement foot is compatible with Kirk, R.R.S., Arca-Swiss, and many other Arca-Swiss style Quick release clamps.

The foot exchange is easy and all it needs, is to remove the Canon foot using the Allen hex key that comes with the H110 and completely unscrew the four Canon mounting screws.
Then using the same four Canon screws, screw and secure the Hejnar H110 replacement foot to the lens collar. Using a thread locking compound like blue Loctite 242 or any other equivalent medium strength product is recommended.
