    Anyone make custom L-plates?

    I just got a Mamiya 645 Pro. I contacted Really Right Stuff about a custom L plate for it and they unfortunately don't make one for this model.

    Does anyone make or know where I could get one made up for my camera? All I would want is an L shaped piece of metal with standard tripod threads under each side to attach attach quick release plates. I'm sure a machine shop could fab up the piece of metal, but what about threads?

    Acratech makes one plate for a 645 - dont know if it is the right one for yours.

    I am having the same problem finding a plate that will fit my 35mm Zeiss ZM rangefinder camera. No luck with RRS, Kirk or Acratech.

    Maybe this one from Kirkphoto.com, BL-645AF, http://www.kirkphoto.com/lbracketso.html but it costs 3x what Keith wants.

    I have been using the Arcahtech universal generic cork to plate with my Bronica ETRSi with a speed winder and motor winder with any problems. You may want to consider it.

    Good luck

    A pity you are not in the UK, I could make one up from off cuts from work, but the postage to Pennsylvania may make it not worth while.
