Chris from Wide Open Camera came by last week to test out the new cheese plate design (seen here alongside the 3d printed prototype sun hood). Some of you may have seen the plastic prototype at NAB; this one is metal, and fits very nicely on the top cold shoe.
The metal here is not yet anodized black, but will be for final release. Here are some more images of the plate so you can get an idea of what its mount points are and how sturdy it is:
The plate will be very competitively priced, and there will be a discount for Kickstarter backers on the first order. These guys will be on sale exclusively through our online store, which we’ll launch this summer, so keep an eye out!
