What model of Alexa plate is the best?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need to buy plate for Alexa. There a lots of them on the market, but which is most universal. I hear there are different kind of Alexa (Plus and Studio). Cam-tec makes plate for Sony V-mount and Alexa in one model. Could you help me to choose best option please?

 

Regards

Stan

I have the cam-tec plate which has a sony eng type interface and integrates a dovetail into the plate so it attached directly to the top stage minimising weight and height. I also got one of the cam-tec wedge adapters in case the camera doesn't come with it's own ;) Absolutely perfect for quick swaps on and off as everything remains in place so no need to rebalance. It's a well made, solid plate and am very happy with it, it is one of the more expensive options though ;)

 

Here's the one for the narrow Tiffen dovetails (like my Clipper):

And the one for standard larger dovetails:

BPA-2 is the newer version on the BPA-1. Has an extra set of threaded holes down the middle where they should have been in the first place.
