Hejnar PHOTO Updated Replacement Feet for Fuji XF telephoto lenses with QD Sockets

Hejnar FUJI-50-140-QD-LOW-PROFILE foot with QD swivel and Sling Strap

As informed by Chris Hejnar, Hejnar PHOTO has enriched their line of Arca-Swiss® dovetail compatible, Replacement Feet for Fujinon XF telephoto lenses with four new models equipped with QD (Quick Detach) Sockets.

Two of these -one standard size and one low profile- are dedicated to the FUJINON XF50-140mm f/2.8R LM OIS WR and another two, -also one standard and one low profile- to the XF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR.

The design described in previous posts Replacement Foot for Fuji XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R from Hejnar PHOTO and Replacement Foot for Fuji XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R from Hejnar PHOTO; unlike the designed of replacement feet for Canon and Nikon lenses which attach with four mounting screws, the solution for Fuji accords to the native design with two stainless steel thumb screws, making them easily detachable and reattachable on their lens collar.

Standard features of the design are dual dovetails (upper and lower) which allow for accessories like flash brackets to be clamped on both surfaces.

The QD System

Nonetheless, the main differentiation of these models is the addition of QD sockets as mentioned in the beginning.
Obviously the QD socket on the Lens Feet is meant to attach a standard push-button QD mount. Which may well be a QD Sling Swivel combined with a sling strap to carry or secure your multi thousand value of the Canon lens.

The QD system has been used for many years by industries around the world including NASA, law enforcement and military agencies. The design inhibits accidental removal, especially when something is hanging from the strap.
