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.

Manufacturer Specification:
Length (w/o strap loop):5.08 cm (2.00")
Height:0.95 cm (  3/8")
Width:3.81 cm (1.50")
Tapped Holes:1 x 1/4"-20
Safety Stop Screws:1 x M3
Color:Black hard coat anodized
Material:6061-T6 Aluminium C.N.C. machined
Made in :USA

As reminder, all D027 features are listed below.
The plate is designed to sit below the lens making it easier to center its longitudinal axis on a tripod head, while permitting full access to the battery and memory compartment.
Two ridges at the front, one short near the mounting screw and a longer on the strap loop side, take care so the plate does not twist when forced sideways.
The Arca style dovetail, which is compatible with almost all Arca style QR clamps -even RRS® lever release clamps- extends equally on both sides.

The D027 QR Plate is flat with a captive slot for the 1/4"-20 screw on one side, which allows fore-aft adjustment; a tapped hole threaded 1/4"-20 for direct mounting on a pod with 1/4"-20 stud in the middle and a strap loop on the other side.
A Φ center mark on the rear indicates the lens centering point when mounting on a QR clamp.

The plate bottom follows the standard Hejnar hollowed out design, with a central brace reinforcing the  the 1/4"-20 tapped hole, which enables direct mounting without removing the plate. Due to the mounting screw positioning near the edge of the plate, there is only one M3 safety stop screw on the same side with the strap loop.

As all Hejnar QR plates dedicated to Fuji cameras, the D027 is accompanied by the necessary size Allen Hex keys for the 1/4"-20 mounting screw and the M3 safety stop screw.
