Wonder if anyone out there has an Arca swiss tripod plate solution for an Olympus EM5 + HLD6 grip? (minus the vertical grip/battery pack section). I've previously been using a Really Right Stuff plate, but that will not fit on the camera when the grip is in place and hoping to avoid using a generic plate. I've considered altering my RRS plate, but it would require some grinding and drilling/tapping a new hole mounting hole.

Because the EM5 has a smaller (narrower) bottom surface than many cameras, the generic plates stick out awkwardly. The RRS plate is contoured to the bottom of the camera, and while it sticks out a bit, it is a smooth transition.

The only difference that I see with this plate: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Detachable-Camera-Bracket-Holder-Grip-Quick-Release-Plate-for-Olympus-OM-D-E-M5-/271271719990?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item3f290df436 and the RRS one is that the RRS plate has the Arca Swiss mount going all the way along the base.

Then there is this type: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Quick-Release-Plate-L-Bracket-Hand-Grip-For-Olympus-OM-D-E-M-AS-KS-0-KS-1-IS-QJ6-/221448977797?pt=AU_Cameras_Photographic_Accessories&hash=item338f633d85.

If you're wanting to use the OEM grip and add a plate, you may have to reconcile yourself to a simple flat plate.
