Stroboframe anti-twist plate for Canon D20?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Anthony Zipple, Dec 31, 2006.

  1. I can not use the D20 with my Stroboframe Pro-T without an anti-twist plate.
    Nothing is listed in the Stroboframe catalogue. B&H had no suggestions. Is
    there anything (short of fabricating my own plate) that works? Thanks

    Perhaps they've never heard of a Canon D20.

    If you meant the 20D it looks like the "300-SLR" Anti-Twist plate is
    the one to use.

    B&H sells it for $12.95.

    BTW, why will the Pro-T not work without the AT plate?

    It bloody well won't stay put worth a tinker's damn. I'm going to order one
    of those from B&H, and see if it will hold things still for more than the 30
    seconds I get now. Especially bad with a heavy lens, like the 70-200 f2.8L
    IS. I can't carry the camera by the handle of the Pro-T, the weight of the
    lens twists the rig to the side.

    Funny, I use the cheaper Quick-Flip without any probs. I guess they
    make the Pro-T that way to sell the plates.

  5. I haven't experience any drift on mine, either, although I've not used a
    70-200 on it.

    I had the same problem with a rented Quick-Flip, with the added problem that
    the controls on the camera ended up at the wrong end in portrait mode, which
    is direction my camera is pointed in 80% of the time...

  7. Nothing that running a drywall screw or two thru couldn't cure.
