Manfrotto SYMPLA 1-Axis Fixed Camera Plate MVA513W is at the heart of the SYMPLA system, allowing you to attach your camera to the SYMPLA rig. To allow the camera and lens to be positioned on the longitudinal axis, this Manfrotto tripod accessory slides along SYMPLA Rods and is unlocked and blocked in place with a single repositionable ratchet lever. Precision-cast in aluminum with durable steel components, the Manfrotto-Bogen SYMPLA Fixed Quick Release Plate has no hard-to-access screws and requires no tools for fitting or adjustment: your camera is conveniently attached to the tripod accessory via Manfrotto’s most popular Quick Release video plate, so swapping cameras or moving a camera between SYMPLA and a Manfrotto video head is easy and fast. Using the sliding QR plate also means that an additional level of longitudinal camera positioning is possible, allowing long lenses, viewfinders, batteries and other bulky accessories to be taken into account. On the underside of the Manfrotto SYMPLA Fixed Plate are two 3/8" threads for attaching the rig to a monopod, tripod or to a video head (such as the 504HD) via another sliding QR plate. Manfrotto has equipped the plate with Easy-Link fittings to support Magic Arms, light modifiers, LED lighting units or external monitors. Give your SYMPLA rig a firm foundation with the Manfrotto Bogen SYMPLA 3/8" Thread Fixed Camera Plate.
