Hejnar Photo new Arca Style QR Plate Dedicated to Fujifilm X-T4

Hejnar Photo D054 QR Plate on Fuji X-T4

Hejnar PHOTO has just announced the release of their D054 Quick Release Plate dedicated to the  Fujifilm X-T4 Interchangeable Lens mirror-less camera.

Nonetheless, the D054 is quite different in design than the D042 that was originally developed for the Fujifilm X-T3. 
Major difference between the recent Fujifilm models and older models is the relocation of the tripod socket under the lens center axis, thus making the fitting for a QR plate quite easier but still there has to be clearance for the battery door.

Let see some details about the D054 QR Plate. The plate is flat with an  off-set mounting screw hole for the 1/4"-20 mounting screw instead of a captive slot as was the case with older models.  A couple of tabs at the front, on either side of the Hejnar PHOTO logo, combined with the mounting screw that is located close to the rear of the plate, altogether act as a very effective anti-twist mechanism.

Looking the plate from the rear a Φ mark is present to indicate the proper alignment for the lens center axis. The usual strap loop is also present on the right side.

The placement of the mounting screw, now allows for two M3 safety stop screws, one at each side, instead of one at one side on some older type 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 fit under the center of the lens mount, but the way the strap loop is designed makes the dovetail sit with a little off-set to the right (looking from the front) as shown clearly in the topmost photo of the article.

Nevertheless, there is no interference with the rear tilting LCD screen and the battery compartment door as seen below.

Should I repeat once again, that all Hejnar QR plates are always accompanied by all necessary screws and tools, which in this case are one SS 1/4"-20 captive mounting screw, two SS M3 safety screws and two size Allen Hex keys, one for the 1/4"-20 mounting screw and one thinner for the M3 safety stop screws.

According to Hejnar Photo as well as my tests, Hejnar plates are fully compatible with Kirk®, R.R.S.®, Arca-Swiss®, as well as many other Arca-Swiss style Quick release clamps.
