Announced just before the end of 2013, the new ultra slim and lightweight Sunwayfoto PT-26 Universal Quick Release plate, was released yesterday.
This very slim, only 5.5 mm (~0.22") thick Arca-Swiss® compatible plate is intended for P&S and/or Mirrorless digital cameras with a small footprint.
However, according to my information this universal plate is the pilot for a whole new series of slimline quick release plates to be released soon by Sunwayfoto.
|Mounting thread:||1/4"-20 UNC|
|Weight (with screw):||9.7 gr|
Sunwayfoto is a pioneer in the field of weight reduction of photographic support gear, as their engineers have proved many times in the past with surprisingly lightweight panning or conventional QR clamps, ball heads and other accessories.
The PT-26 is just 0.5 mm thicker than a common Arca style dovetail, adding the less possible bulk under a compact camera.
