The M-Plate Is One Smart Tripod Plate
That means that you need to choose if you are going to use a tripod OR sling your camera each time you go on a shoot, and need to take the plate or connector off each time you wanna switch.
The idea is to make a plate that connects both with Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss quick release systems while providing an array of additional mounting points for a strap, a hand grip and a few rig products which they say are in the pipe.
A short disclaimer, C-loop are DIYP sponsors, but we would have blogged the m plate anyway since it is so darn cool.
